I had tea with BornFree today. As I munched scones, I heard the founder and their new spokesmom tout the benefits of BPA free bottles and baby gear. In addition to being BPA-free, they've launched a new sustainability initiative.
First, let's talk about the cool products I saw at this event. Check out this teething ring. When baby's teeth are coming in and the little dude wants to gnaw away, give him this silicone teether. The BornFree Silicone Teething Ring and Gumbrush ($19.95) is made from medical grade silicone and is 100% free of chemicals such as BPA, Phthalates and PVC. Designed by a Pediatric Dentist for babies of 6 months and up, the multi-purpose teether not only soothes the need to chew, it also helps cleans off plaque and bacteria. Stash this in the refrigerator and be prepared for the next late-night soothing session. The new straw-topped sippy cups were noteworthy.
Now on to the eco-news. I'm also please to tell you BornFree has announced a new sustainability program. Phase One:

When you no longer have use for the bottle, you can simply return it to one of our many eco retailers. The bottles will be efficiently collected to minimize carbon footprint and returned to our recycler for processing. By registering your return, we will know where and when to schedule the collection of the returned bottles.
The 160ml and 260ml Eco-Friendly bottles will be recycled into new product lines such as toys, furniture and household utensils.
And I'm told that Phase 2 is in the works. So great to see a brand taking responsibility in this way.
