It’s Earth Day! We can’t think of any better way to celebrate than to share the Green/Environmentally Friendly finalists from the JPMA Innovation Awards for 2020.
WINNER! Green Sprouts® Sprout Ware® Straw Cup made from Plants Our Sprout Ware® plant-plastic is a 100% plant-based material that replaces petroleum plastics to avoid harmful chemicals. Soft, silicone drip-free straw spout and straw supports healthy oral development, and the removable straw allows for tilted or traditional straw drinking options as your baby learns and transitions from bottles or sippy spouts. Liquids only flow when pressure is applied to the spout to help baby regulate the flow and prevent spills. Removable, easy-grip handles and a contoured design help baby grasp and hold the cup. A wide neck and removable base make this baby sippy cup easy to clean by hand for longevity, but all parts are dishwasher safe. Check it out>>

Green/Environmentally Friendly Finalist: Ahimsa® Ahimsa Dinnerware Designed by a Pediatrician Mom, the modular dinnerware encourages healthy habits at a young age while decreasing the environmental footprint of plastic. Ahimsa offers fully metal products without the use of paint or toxic chemicals. The unique patent-pending nesting spoon is designed to “nest” on the bowl or any yogurt cup; this prevents cross-contamination that typical spoons encounter when laid down on a dirty surface. Parents can use it is a tea stirrer and the infant training cup can be later used as a rinse cup for tooth brushing. The products are sized to grow with your child from infancy through adulthood. The aim is to reduce and reuse. Check it out>>
