Just a few months before Girl Wonder was born (hard to believe that was 2 years ago!), I learned about the dangers of BPA and how it could be found in many baby bottles at the time. I dove in, head first, and searched the internet for lists of safer baby bottle choices.
With more research, I learned that BPA can be found in other items as well, such as:
- canned foods (except Eden’s Organic canned beans)
- beverage cans
- 5 gallon polycarbonate water jugs (the types used in dispensers in offices)
- food processors and blenders
- food storage containers
- baby teethers, plates, cups, and cutlery
Resources are out there to help you with lists of safer baby and children’s products such as those found on The Soft Landing, Safemama, and ZRecommends. In honor of our two year anniversary here at Eco Women, we’re giving away a $20.00 gift certificate to The Soft Landing to make it even a little easier! The products offered in their store are also PVC-free and phthalate-free too.
