At last, spring has sprung. Days full of beltline walks, swimming pools and patio drinks are so close that we can almost reach out and touch them. The sun isn’t your only pal come warmer days, though. And that’s where our newest obsession bkr water bottles come in. An ode to all things beautiful, bkr water bottles are for the simple, stylish and sustainable, against a disposable world and the chemicals that come along with it. As bkr founders Tal and Kate put it, “We were intelligent, fashion-obsessed, cultured women who were drinking out of cheap, disposable plastic water bottles. It didn't compute, but we were addicted. We searched and couldn't find a reusable water bottle we loved.” But that’s one problem we have no longer. These luxe little bottles are comprised of “clean bubbly glass and soft silicone” and feel more like the catwalk than a campground.
Why’s this so different, though? Well, the bottle itself is soda-lime glass, the sleeve and gasket are made of simple silicone and the cap is of food-grade polypropylene. All of these materials are BPA-free, phthalate-free, FDA approved and 100% recyclable. What’s super cool for the fashion minded is that bkr’s chic collections are released only twice a year, taking cues from fashion week and paying attention to what’s going on for both the bottle and world.
Another one of our favorite things about bkr is that their love of water extends to an overall love of humanity. For every bottle bought (and loved), a portion of proceeds goes to combating the global water crisis as well as the ongoing battle against cancer through organizations Obakki Foundation and Canary Foundation.
Rumor as it that it’s bad news to cheers with water, but we don’t think so in this case. Here’s to bkr! Thanks for making the world a bit more beautiful and for providing our newest (and healthiest) addiction.
