The bottom line: Everything we sell is, to the limits of current scientific knowledge, free from all known toxins including, but not limited to, BPA, phthalates, PVC, lead and cadmium.
Founded in 2008, The Glass Baby Bottle was conceived of by the husband and wife team of Guy and Kristie Turck in response to the bafflingly lax standards we saw in retail and manufacturing regarding what is considered a safe baby or toddler product. Lead paint in toys, BPA in baby formula and bottles, toxic dyes...the list just seemed to get longer every day!
Among other unsettling facts: current U.S. law does not require or force chemical manufacturers to prove their chemicals are safe before using them in consumer goods such as baby products. Hard as that may be to believe, it's a fact.
So we decided to take matters into our own hands and settled on a simple list of guiding principles:
- The products we carry, to the limits of current scientific knowledge, do not leach or contain known toxins.
- The products we carry be eco-friendly, sustainable and recyclable.
- The products we carry be manufactured in a socially responsible fashion.
We know that by taking an interest and investigating -- and putting your foot down when you see things you don't like -- we move towards realizing our goals and succeeding on our own terms, not those dictated by the status quo.
We firmly believe that demand for safer and healthier products for us and our children will inevitably lead to their availability. We have the power to enact the changes we desire -- and what we desire is a healthier, happier world.
To that end we offer a collection of what our research shows to be the safest, eco-friendly baby and toddler products on the market -- and always with an eye out for the next generation of safety-first consumer goods created by your demand.
