There's something to be said for an accessory that negates wastefulness, serves a purpose, and looks this good. Get ready to watch the world welcome another player on the reusable glass bottle field: the bkr Bottle. The bottles, which are made of glass and covered with a solid, pearlized silicone sleeve, hold 16 ounces and, according to designer Tal Soltz, make a stand against waste, leaching chemicals, and unsightly water-holding accessories.
With a $28 price tag, we might not be grabbing one of these right away (we're more of the 32-ounces-at-a-time folks anyway), but we do like that there's no worry of plastic-related chemicals leaching into the water. This might be just the thing for the office, though. And the design is sweet and simple—vaguely reminiscent of an iPod.
