Is the beverage bottle you’re using really safe – both for you and the environment?
Many steps have been taken by organizations and individuals to help save the earth, among them: switch from styrofoam to cardboard, stop the use of plastic bags in favor of paper bags, and promoting the reusable beverage bottles instead of the plastic kind.
Plastic water bottles create tons of trash, which inevitably hurt the environment. Each year, 26 billion plastic bottles are thrown away and only about 15% are recycled. Disposed of improperly, they cause air pollution, contaminate the soil and water, and release toxins that could cause cancer in humans.
In 2007, Pam Marcus, a pediatric physical therapist and feeding specialist, and Daren Joy, award-winning integrative designer, found a way to make bottles eco-friendly with Lifefactory.
What makes Lifefactory different? Lifefactory bottles set the standards for safety and style in reusable hydration bottles. They are made of BPA-, phthalates-, and PVC-free glass, and come with a protective silicone sleeve to prevent breakage while also providing a comfortable non-slip gripping surface.
From cradle to table Lifefactory offers a complete range of bottles from infant to adult – or cradle to table. The baby bottles use Borosilicate glass which is more durable and thermal shock-resistant, making it possible to for the baby bottle to go from the freezer to a boiling water pot without incident. Its products are built to last a lifetime, grow with the family through every life stage and never become obsolete. Baby-safe and parent-smart – that’s Lifefactory.
