Geode by Industrial Drinkware is a Case that Seals and Protects your Glass.
Geode is a protective case, designed to seal the opening of our pint sized glass, making it easy to take on the go. The name Geode comes from a volcanic rock structure that is often rough and rugged on the outside, but contains a colorful array of crystals on the inside.
Take the Same Glasses You Use in Your Home, On the Go.
Have you ever grabbed a glass from your cupboard, prepared a beverage, and realized you have somewhere to go? We love drinking from glasses, yet they are seldom the best option for traveling because they are fragile and prone to spill. Geode solves these problems by sealing and protecting your glass, allowing you to bring it everywhere.
Every Solution Starts with a Problem.
The idea came to me one day when I was mixing a protein shake. It was already mixed in a glass when I realized I had to run out the door. I thought to myself, it would be ideal to simply put a lid on my glass and go. I looked to my second option. It was a plastic bottle, clean, yet for some reason, still smelling like spoiled protein shake from the last time I used it. So began our mission to create a sustainable and easy to clean beverage container that fits seamlessly into our daily routine.
Glass is Better for Your Health. You can Taste the Difference.
There is a reason we all keep glasses in our home and use them every day. Glass is a natural material that has been used by humans for several thousand years. Unlike plastic and coated metal containers, glass does not off-gas or leach harmful chemicals.
The smooth and non-porous property of glass makes it the ideal choice to savor any beverage. These same attributes prevent bacteria and food residue from collecting and absorbing into the walls as they do in other containers.
Geode’s Three Part Design Creates a Liquid Tight Seal.
Geode’s simple yet innovative seal is made between the lid, glass, and sleeve. The glass slides effortlessly into a sleeve. Threads in the lid correspond to threads on the sleeve. While the lid fastens with a half turn, the sleeve and lid act as a vise to seal the glass between. The gasket in the lid presses against the top rim of the glass to lock in your drink.
Geode Offers Three Ways to Drink.
Geode’s versatile design provides three convenient options for drinking:
1. The unique rubber plug, located on the lid, seals to prevent leakage. Pull the plug’s tab and rotate it to the side to access the wide sport style mouth opening.
2. Unplugging a second smaller hole at the center of the lid allows you to insert and drink from a straw.
3. If you prefer to drink directly from the glass you can remove the lid completely. There is enough glass exposed so your lips won’t touch the threads, and you won’t be drinking from plastic.
Geode is an Easy to Clean, Space Saving System.
Geode offers an alternative to storing bulky and mismatched containers that often consume valuable space in our cupboards. We designed Geode to be compact and stackable.
The interchangeable glass design makes it quick and easy to swap a dirty glass for a clean one. Geode’s glass and case are both dishwasher safe. When you’re not using Geode’s case, the Industrial Drinkware glass still serves its purpose for typical use.
Customize Geode with Different Colored Glasses.
Though Geode is inherently functional, we are truly excited about the endless style and design possibilities that we can create.
Form Follows Function.
When designing the case, we chose aesthetics that would complement the shape of the glass. We were guided by the function and drew inspiration from everyday useful objects. Mechanical suspension inside the case and a shock absorbing flange at the base add to the protection of the glass. Geode is great for both hot and cold beverages. The case functions as a barrier to reduce the transfer of heat and also helps prevent condensation.
Geode Will Be Manufactured in the USA.
As a commitment to helping our economy, we want to support manufacturing jobs in the USA. We want to produce the best quality products and ensure the use of safe materials and working conditions. By manufacturing in the USA we can eliminate shipping costs from overseas and put the savings toward the quality of our parts.
Cheers to Innovation and All of Our Backers.
To everyone who is a backer of this project, your support is greatly appreciated. This has been a long time in the making and it wouldn’t be possible without your help. Thank you for believing in us and Geode.

We have added international shipping rewards that include the a $25 international shipping fee. If you happen to pay for the $75 shipping option, we will be refund the difference. Thank you!
Risks and challenges
As we enter into tooling for production we will continue to perfect each part in order to achieve the best possible fit and function. This is always a challenging process but one with which we are very familiar. By working closely with our manufacturer we will be able to avoid problems and overcome challenges that may arise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
