BPA Bottles from Baby Greens

Baby Greens have just bought the Green to Grow BPA-free bottle to NZ. Available in regular or wide neck, these baby bottles are made from PES plastic, which gives them a natural golden color. They are free of phthalates and free of bisphenol A – a suspected hormone-disrupting chemical used in polycarbonate plastic, from which most baby bottles are made
• Bottles are tested in the U.S. to ensure they meet the highest standards for quality and safety
• Free of lead and PVC
• Includes a Beginner (slow flow, 0-3 months) nitrosamine-free silicone nipple
• 100% recycled packaging
• Dishwasher safe (top rack)

For toddler sippy's, Baby Greens also have the Nuby no-spill cup.
or visit Just Herbal for toddler-sized EcoTankas.

In the United States check out the fabulous selection at Nubius Organics. I love the Boon BPA-free sippy at only US$5.99.

Thrifty Green Thursday Carnival

The Green Baby Guide ( are running a "Thrifty Green Thursday Carnival". Even though, babies, gas, food of any kind, and air travel are becoming ridiculously expensive, At they believe it’s possible to save the planet and a wad of cash with a few creative ideas. (we do too!)

So how can families (or individuals for that matter) can save money while "going green"?

As a family, we at Organic Baby have gone back to the days of food co-ops. Rather than ordering a fruit/vege box for our family each week (at $30-$55). We have a large fortnightly fruit delivery box which we share between three families (costing us just over $18 per family per fortnight). We grown our own vege and buy more as & when required (no waste).

Check out our NZ directory for fruit & vege delivery services.
(or in the US).

For My Kids

Don't we all want the best for our kids and the planet!!!

For my Kids produces all natural products including a All-Natural Hand Wash, All-Natural Vegan Lip Balm, All-Natural Comfey Salve and All-Natural Alternative to Bacterial Disinfectants.

We tested the All-Natural Vegan Lip Balm which keeps nice n' solid in the tin, yet once you put it on your lips, melts into moist, yumminess and gives your lips a glossy shine. You feel safe applying it and licking your lips knowing the ingredients are totally natural ... organic sweet almond oil, organic coconut oil, carnauba wax, organic tamanu oil and organic vanilla beans.

We also tried the All-Natural hand Wash is a delicious lavender-scented spray which is simply perfect for those times when you are out and about with little ones you can't get to soap and water.

For retailers, For my Kids have special gallon-size bottles of For My Kids All-Natural Alternative to Antibacterial Disinfectants and For My Kids All-Natural Hand Wash for situations where your customers bring their own containers to refill. Perfect for schools and other places for children.

Thanks to Christine for introducing us to For my Kids - available in the US and shipping worldwide.
