There are a few steps involved in picking your custom ALEX Bottle since you get to mix and match four (4) parts with a lot of color options.
The BackerKit Survey allows you to ORDER each custom bottle part individually but it won’t show you an image of your custom bottle fully built. Because of this, we’ve built a Custom Bottle Building tool that lets you create and see all the possible color combinations. When you build a color combo that you like, it will tell you which parts to order when filling out your Backerkit Survey. You can also download an image of the bottle you created in the Custom Bottle Builder.
Here’s a video to show you how to use the Custom Bottle Builder to help you fill out your survey; or you can simply follow the steps below the video.
Step 1: Click the link in the Backerkit Survey email to open the survey.
Step 2: In a separate window, open our futuristic Bottle Builder by clicking this link:http://www.alexbottle.com/bottle-customizer
Step 3: With the Custom Bottle Builder open, use the color indicators on the right to build your awesome custom bottle.
Step 4: Click the blue “Download” button and save this bottle image to your desktop. (If you ordered more then 1 custom bottle, then you’ll want to do this for each of the bottles you would like to order)
Step 5: Go back into the Backerkit survey and start ordering your custom bottles using the color guide in the custom bottle image you just saved.
Step 6: Slap yourself a hi-five. You just ordered your custom ALEX Bottle! If you have any issues with the Custom Bottle Builder or the Backerkit Survey then direct message us and we’ll take care of you!
If you’ve decided later that you filled out something wrong in the survey, you can actually go back and change it anytime before we announce the cut off date for changes.

To make sure you can drink water with no concerns of BPA, get an ALEX bottle.
ALEX does have a plastic cap and plastic collar at the mid body that are made from BPA Free FDA approved Polypropylene #5. Regardless, we’ve designed ALEX so the plastic collar on the middle of the bottle never contacts the water you drink. It’s just there to give ALEX the tightest and strongest threading ability. When you screw alex together, the silicone seal on the lower half of the bottle makes contact with a stainless steel rib on the inside of the upper half creating the a glorious seal that’s 110% leak proof guaranteed.
We designed a bottle that we would want to use everyday, so choosing the healthiest materials for you, our families, and us was our biggest priority. That, and how to make a bottle you could hide a beer in.
-The body of ALEX is built from Premium Grade 304 stainless steel.
-The Cap, and CST around the ALEX body are made from BPA FREE & FDA approved Polypropylene #5
-There is also a soft touch silicone sleeve made from FDA approved silicone (feels nice to the touch and helps protect ALEX from denting if dropped.
-To cap it off, the strap is made from recycled plastic water bottles (pun intended).
Overall, we chose only the healthiest materials for ALEX because we want to drink from our bottle too.
First, ALEX itself is made from Premium Grade 304 Stainless Steel that is 50% recycled, and the entire bottle is 100% recyclable. Also, with CLEAN SEAM TECHNOLOGY™ you actually clean the inside of alex so it doesn’t begin to stink. That means your bottle will last a lot longer; our hope is forever. Solid.
With alex’s new design, we worked on ways to use less plastic and moved from plastic threads on the lower half to stainless steel threads. This also helped us slim ALEX up a ton. Bonus.
ALEX’s carrying strap is also made from 100% recycled disposable plastic bottles. Check.
We also ship alex compacted so which allows us to ship more bottles in the same space and minimize our carbon footprint. Boom.
We’re proud of where we are now and know we can always do better; and we will.
So, we regrouped, and did endless amounts of research looking for a factory that would met our sustainability standards, our high product quality standards and that would be affordable.
We were uncompromising and spent years talking to different sourcing groups and going to China to visit tons of manufacturers ourselves. We found an amazing partner that has key Certifications: ISO 14001 for Sustainability and ISO 9001 for Quality. Fortunately they also work with some incredibly premium brands that also require these same things. We’re in good company.
Our factory specializes in bottles and can make ALEX within the incredibly tight tolerances we require. It’s one of the most complex bottles to make. True story. We needed experts that had seen it all and done it all. Our manufacturing engineers are awesome and passionate about making alex perfect. We love that.
) we learn that 50 Billion water bottles are consumed EACH YEAR – and most of them end up in our landfills and our waterways. Fact: We think that’s lame. The current dependency on disposable plastic water bottles is taking its toll on our planet, and we feel ALEX is a strong step in the right direction to help solve this problem.
A.) Good question. You must be a robot. Try using it for a:

-tiny-house compost bin.
-space-shuttle wine carafe.
-very quiet friend.
-stupid, stupid glasses.
-one-man jug band.
