When I attend trade shows and green festivals, I’m always on the look out for products for my family. Sometimes these are simpler greener options, often they address safety issues.
Any parent today is getting used to having the bejesus scared out of them every time they turn around so I guess I’m no different. Since, it seems quite impossible to throw out everything we own; repaint the house…no tear down the house; buy all new appliances; and only eat organic…I make smaller changes.
Most of my big concerns center around ingestion of toxic chemicals, so food, drink and dishes are high on my list of things to ensure are really safe. Oh, and drinking cups.
Though my son is six years old…we’ve never ditched the sippy cup. What? You say! O.K. we’ve never ditched the sippy cup at night! Somehow it’s always seemed to be to be quite dangerous to leave a full glass of water on the nightstand for use by someone half asleep, so we leave a sippy cup.
We recently were able to replace the scary plastic one we’d had for awhile with a new one from Safe Sippy. Made from non- leaching stainless steel, the safe sippy we have has cute plastic detailing and a handle on each side.
The plastic sleeve is a touch that is especially nice in the middle of the night when grabbing a cold, wet cup isn’t all that enjoyable. All materials used in making this cup are BPA, phthalates and DEHA free.
