By now most of us know that dangers of BPA for infant bottles, but do you also know those same concerns exists for toddler sippy cups? I was recently introduced to a company called Pura Stainless:
Pura Stainless was formed in response to the overwhelming need for beverage bottles that are both environmentally friendly and free of toxins, including BPA (see our FAQ for more info on Bisphenol A or BPA).
The more we researched the toxin-leaching issues and unsavory environmental impacts of plastic water bottles and lids, the more concerned we became. We found it distressing that a number of plastic bottle vendors recommend the replacement of their bottles every six months due to the adverse impact of heat cycling, scuffing, scratches, and scrubbing (just from regular cleaning)!
Unfortunately, aluminum bottles are not much better with their “secret sauce” oven enamel linings/coatings. One also has to wonder how well these linings will hold up when the soft aluminum bottle dents and dings or is exposed to heat cycling.
With these concerns in mind, we created the Pura Stainless line of products which feature food service grade, non-leaching stainless steel lids and a limited lifetime warranty. We live and breathe the mantra One Life… One Bottle™ and we hope you will too!
I was able to review the Kiki Infant/Toddler Bottle:
