green to grow: phylate free baby bottles
When babies are born today they enter the industrialized world of environmental toxins. It is no wonder Green to Grow was launched by husband and wife team, Michael & Shelley Ritterbrown.
A need to protect their own child spurred the decision to launch Green to Grow, a line of bisphenol A-free and phthalate free plastic baby bottles. They were alarmed at reports highlighting the potential dangers presented by polycarbonate plastic, which contains the hormone disruptor bisphenol A—a neurological, developmental, and reproductive toxicant. Frustrated that there were no eco options for their baby, they began their company as concerned parents for safer alternatives.
The bottles are periodically spot tested for bisphenol A, phthalates, and lead at an environmental laboratory in Chicago, Illinois. The company also uses 100% recycled paper and soy inks in all of our packaging and printed corporate materials and are a 1% for the Planet partner. Hurray to eco alternatives!
