Another great review for BornFree!

Bornfree has had another super review. This time from A Little Bit Of Everything Product Review Blog a site where, as the title suggests, the aim is to review all sorts of family friendly items from baby bottles to slipper socks to toothpaste.

The reviewer talks about her surprise, fear and guilt at her previous ignorance of BPA and it’s dangers. I have enormous empathy with these feelings as I was completely unaware of BPA until I had my third child and I feel very guilty that I have unwittingly exposed my daughters to dangerous toxins like BPA and phtalates.

 However, BPA awareness is increasing day by day and it is comforting to know that we as parents, bloggers and reviewers can make a difference by being part of the BPA-Free revolution for future generations.

Here’s a quote from the review

BornFree bottles, training cups, teats and other products are all safe from chemical breakdown leakage. They do not contain typical plastic bottle chemicals in the first place – therefore there is nothing to leak.

“Ban the BPA Bottle” say Breast Cancer UK

Breast Cancer UK today launched their No More BPA campaign calling on the Government to take action to end the use of the controversial chemical BPA in baby bottles.

This call is backed by NCT (formerly National Childbirth Trust), UNISON, The Women’s Environmental Network, the Cancer Prevention and Education Society and CHEM Trust.

The results of the survey conducted by the charity show that the public support the move, with 61 per cent of the public saying that the UK Government should “act to end the use of BPA in baby bottles.” Baby bottles containing BPA are already voluntarily withdrawn from shelves in Canada and the USA, but are still available in the UK.

BornFreeTM is the world’s leading brand for baby bottles and feeding devices free from Bisphenol-A (BPA), Phthalates and PVC, which are now available across the UK. BornFreeTM products offer a completely safe option for parents wishing to avoid the risk of interference with the developmental processes of children, which evidence suggests is caused by leaching of chemicals such as BPA from plastics. Babies and growing children are particularly at risk from exposure because they are still undergoing many hormone-controlled developmental processes.

BornFreeTM baby feeding products have always been and always will be free from harmful chemicals.

Erin Brockovich Champions The Fight Against BPA!

Have a look at this piece in TheCelebrityCafe.com. It seems environmental activist Erin Brockovich is speaking out against outdated chemical laws which still allow BPA and other harmful chemicals to be used in the production of cans and packaging in the USA.

It is well documented that the use of BPA has been restricted in many American states and in Canada due to a list of negative health risks and increased studies linking exposure from BPA to reproductive abnormalities, breast and prostate cancers, type II diabetes,  impaired immune function, obesity, and heart disease.

Brockovich has teamed up with other grassroots campaigners to take the Million Baby Crawl Campaign to key American cities and educate the public about The Kid Safe Chemical Act, a new toxic chemical bill being presented to Congress this month. She says

“This effort is about creating awareness and encouraging parents to be the watchdog for their children”

We are very proud to say that all BornFree™ products are 100% Free of BPA, Phthalates and PVC and are the safe and smart choice for you and your baby.

These days many companies  are removing these chemicals from children’s items. We never used them. Ever.

It is our hope that awareness in the UK will spread and the British public will put pressure on the government to outlaw the use of BPA in products meant for the use of children.

It is really great news that a well known champion of underdogs like Erin Brockovich has joined in the fight against BPA. Go Erin!
