Growing Up Green: New Lineup of Sustainable Baby and Child Products Provides Healthier Options For Families

Four new eco-friendly options formulated to be non-toxic and environmentally safe

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - Soko Distribution today announced the availability of four new products designed for babies and young children. Lifefactory glass baby bottles, Modern-Twist children's placemats, Wean Green glass baby food containers and Kinderville (I can't think of a creative way to describe their products) are completely non-toxic and are specifically manufactured without the use harmful chemicals. Each of these products was created by companies that have made sustainability the foundation of their businesses. As a direct response to the increasing demand by parents to offer their children healthier options, these items provide an alternative to less-than-safe child-focused products.

"Our company philosophy is one that supports not only the healthy growth of our children, but that of a sustainable environment as well," says Mary Benedicto, Director of Soko Distribution. "Parents are looking for alternatives for their children that will get the job done, but will not have a negative effect on the environment or their kids' health. I'm thrilled to be able to provide support and distribute such products to parents who want to make a difference for both their children and the environment." Soko Distribution is the Canadian distribution partner of these products.

Each company's founders have a history of commitment to both children and the environment, which is displayed through their goods.

Lifefactory - Parents no longer have to worry about harmful chemicals seeping into their child's baby bottles, or into their own water bottles. The producer of unique and stylish glass alternatives, Lifefactory manufactures these items that are free of bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalate, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Designed to grow with families "from cradle to table," these glass containers are the safest to drink from, and unlike other plastic containers, create no adverse effect on the environment. Life Factory offers glass baby bottles to child and adult water bottles that range from $13.49 to $25.99 and can be found in a variety of selected retailers across Canada

Modern Twist - A new solution to an old problem: how to keep the table clean when kids are in the mix. Add to this the desire for chemical-free, non-toxic materials that are easily stashed and stored, and you have the basis of the Modern Twist placemats for kids. Packaged in a "Kids Box" complete with a set of six non-toxic dry erase markers, these silky food-grade silicone placemats won't crease or rip. Better yet, they provide a non-porous and germ-free surface which is free of BPA, lead, latex, phthalates and other harsh chemicals. These unique placemats range from $19.99 to $29.99 (full kit) at selected retailers across Canada.

Wean Green - Storing baby food and kids snacks never looked so good. Wean Green cubes come in various sizes and are completely free of harmful chemicals, additives and other toxic substances often found in standard plastic storage containers. The eco-friendly containers are made of fortified glass that provides a durable option for parents who want to store or freeze their baby food. The variety of colourful Wean Green cubes are also perfect for carrying snacks to and from school. In keeping with the company's mandate of sustainability, Wean Green has partnered with 1% For The Planet, an organization dedicated to building and supporting an alliance of businesses that are financially committed to creating a healthy planet. Wean Green cubes range from $11 to $22 and are available at selected retailers across Canada.

Kinderville - Bibs, bowls, cups, jars and storage containers for kids no longer need to represent a leap of faith for parents. Kinderville provides all of these products that are specifically crafted without the use of harmful chemicals and additives. Borne from the desire of one family to have safer alternatives for their children, the Kinderville brand emerged. All silicone items, including bibs are completely lead-free, BPA-free, and phthalate-free. As well, Kinderville offers a range of safe eating-related products such as freezer trays, ice-pop moulds and more. Item pricing ranges from $13 to $29 and can be purchased at selected Canadian retailers.

"The availability of these products provides another option for parents who want quality items for their children that are both top-quality as well as sustainable. Now people are able to obtain safe, non-toxic products that do the job without negative effects to their children or the environment."
