ALEX Bottle Launches Kickstarter Campaign

It all started at the sink.

Chris Hotell was a simple man who loved his stainless steel water bottle, but a smelly residue from water and smoothies collected on the inside too quickly. When armed with dish soap and hyper-maneuverable scrub brushes, he still couldn’t loosen the bacteria from the bottle. Not willing to surrender to unhealthy wasteful disposable plastic bottles, he needed something that made sustainability simple. A phone call to mom yielded some ideas; a drinking vessel designed to open up in the middle for easy cleaning that can compact to half its size when empty.

Resilient and ever thirsty, Chris grabbed his sketch pad and hacksaw. From a shower of metal filings, eraser crumbs, and graphite smudges, ALEX was born.

ALEX stands for something.

A devious do-gooder from the start, ALEX is an acronym for “Always Live Extraordinarily”. We believe that innovation with a conscience is an idea that people can get behind. By personifying ALEX, it becomes more than just a water bottle; it becomes a part of your family.

Mission In A Bottle.

ALEX is made by a small group of individuals who seek to improve the planet, one idea at a time. Our products reflect strong passions for creative design, functional integrity, and simplicity. If we ever successfully bottle the cosmos, you’ll be among the first to get a straw.
