on Banning BPA
My husband and I are Oregonians and have been concerned about the use of plastics in baby bottles and sippy cups for a few years now. We searched the market for suitable alternatives and the only thing available seemed to be glass. Considering glass is so fragile and not allowed in most daycares, we decided then that we wanted to start a stainless steel baby bottle company. So, a month ago, we launched Eco Baba (www.ecobaba.biz). We have a website up where you can purchase the bottles and we are in several boutiques in Portland and Bend. These bottles are made with 304 FDA approved stainless steel, are free of lacquers that other stainless steel bottle manufacturers use and are 100% recyclable. The only plastic used on our bottles is for the ring that holds the nipple. It's made of #5, BPA free plastic and designed so the liquid in the bottle doesn't contact the plastic. This is just the beginning for our company. Now that we are expecting our 2nd child, our quest for healthy alternatives has become more urgent and we truly hope that Oregon and the FDA see the light and eliminate BPA from all products ASAP.
