Green to Grow is a line of bisphenol A-free plastic baby bottles grew from Michael Ritterbrown and his wifes alarm as they read reports that highlighted the potential dangers presented by polycarbonate plastic, which contains the hormone disruptor bisphenol A—a neurological, developmental, and reproductive toxicant—and from their frustration over the lack of options. They believed concerned parents like us would welcome safer alternatives, even if they cost more due to the higher price of the raw materials used. And to ensure the highest level of quality and safety, they decided to have their bottles periodically spot tested for bisphenol A, phthalates, and lead at an environmental laboratory in Chicago, Illinois. They have learned, in their efforts to serve as stewards of health and wellbeing for babies and children, that it is impossible to separate what is best for babies and children from what is best for the earth. To this end, they are committed to seeking environmentally sound business solutions and consider the environmental impact of every decision they make. They use 100% recycled paper and soy inks in all of their packaging and printed corporate materials and have partnered with 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of their annual sales to environmental causes. They have also founded the Bottles to Babies Initiative, using their web site as a vehicle to connect families who are no longer using their baby bottles with local non-profit organizations and womens shelters that accept used baby bottle donations. Green to Grow has plans to partner with these organizations and to donate new nipples to be used with donated bottles. This is truly a grassroots effort: in addition to their list of recommended locations to donate bottles, customers are encouraged to find local organizations that accept baby bottle donations and to contribute this information to their web site, where they are in the process of compiling a national database.
