stainless steel is:
safe healthy green durable versatile
It’s by no accident that safety is our first concern at organicKidz™. Everything we do starts with the health and safety of children. Our stainless steel bottle line reflects that commitment. Stainless steel is an inert metal with NO POSSIBILITY of carcinogenic chemicals leaching even in extreme heat conditions.
Bisphenol A or BPA is a compound used in many polymer based plastics like Polycarbonate Plastic (Shatter-proof clear plastic). BPA both strengthens and makes plastics more flexible. Plastics without BPA can be more fragile. In the body, BPA acts as an estrogen receptor antagonist and has been linked to cancer, fertility issues, attention difficulties and cardiac problems.
Many studies have indicated that there are concerns about BPA’s effects on infant and fetal development.
PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride is used to make vinyl polymers and is used to soften plastics, and increase flexibility. It is commonly used in a variety of plastic products. It is considered to be a carcinogen and can leach Lead and Phthalates.
Phthalates are used to make plastic more flexible, durable and longer lasting. Phthalates are easily released as plastic ages. They have been linked to Asthma, Metabolic Disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder and interfere in hormone production.
Nitrosamine is a chemical that is used in the manufacture of a variety of products including latex and rubber products, cosmetics and pesticides. It has been potentially linked to liver and gastric cancers.
At organicKidz™, we don’t just rely on factory testing, we go above and beyond making a conscious choice to test all our products at an independently certified facility. With awareness of new chemicals springing up every day, we strive to be an industry leader in providing the safest products for you and your family.
It’s no secret that plastic has a propensity to leach chemicals. Today, many baby bottle brands have removed BPA, PVC and Phthalates from their manufacturing process. However, little testing has been done on the chemicals they have substituted. Early studies indicate that BPS, another member of the bisphenol family and a common substitute for BPA, may be worse for children than the chemical it replaced.
But the safety benefits of stainless steel over plastic and glass go beyond the chemical make-up and into very real and practical applications, as well. Unlike glass and plastic, stainless steel does not mask the temperature of the liquid it contains. Glass and plastic have innate insulating qualities that can make it difficult to gauge the actual temperature of the contents of the bottle. With stainless steel what you feel is what you get.
The fact that hospitals and medical facilities around the world regularly use stainless steel for internal human body implants speaks to how healthy stainless steel is. Its natural resistance to bacteria makes it the best choice for medical procedures and food preparation and also makes it the perfect material for baby products.
Both glass and plastic have a natural ability to harbor bacteria. The staining and foul smell that plastic and glass take on over time are indications of bacterial presence. Our food grade stainless steel, with regular cleaning, will remain bacteria resistant.
organicKidz™ stainless steel bottles are100% recyclable. They are also 100% reusable. The durability and versatility of stainless steel contribute to its long life as a bottle for your child. This extended life means less replacement bottles and less waste.
Our accessories also make a big environmental statement, as well. When you convert your organicKidz™ baby bottles into sippy cups and lunch box ready water bottles you’re eliminating the need to purchase separate sippys, juice boxes and other drinking containers. Less products bought, means less space taken up in the landfills. Whether your child is at a sippy cup or water bottle stage, our accessories allow you to make a greener statement.
Stainless steel is virtually indestructible. Glass is not, of course. And, even plastic can break or crack when dropped on hard surfaces like kitchen counters and hard floors. These cracks can go unnoticed and become breeding grounds for bacteria on the inside of plastic bottles. This is simply not an issue with stainless steel.
The incredible durability of stainless steel also makes it amazingly versatile. Over a relatively short period of time plastic and glass will stain and become odorous due to bacteria. These bottles often end up in landfills. The virtually infinite life span of stainless steel bottles means that they can be used again and again. Our “life bottle” program gives eco-savvy parents the perfect system for converting their baby’s bottle into a sippy cup when they are old enough and then into a fun, lunch-box friendly water bottle when they are ready to go off to school. Literally, organicKidz baby bottles can be used by your child from newborn beyond preschool.
