Join us for a Toxic Baby Bottle Swap
LA Event :: EWG
Many baby bottles contain the toxic chemical bisphenol-A (BPA), which has been linked to early puberty, childhood obesity, breast cancer and neurological and behavioral changes. The CA Toxics-Free Babies and Toddlers Act (SB 797), introduced by Senator Fran Pavley, would ban BPA in food and beverage containers designed for children 3 years and younger.
Please join us on Wednesday, August 19 for a Toxic Baby Bottle Swap and BPA press conference. The first 1,000 parents who bring in an old baby bottle can swap it for a new BPA-free baby bottle, courtesy of Green to Grow, an LA-based, parent-owned company committed to BPA-free products.
Dr. Harvey Karp, world-renowned pediatrician and author of The Happiest Baby on the Block, will be speaking.
