Huge news: Bioserie has just become the first company with MADE SAFE® certified toys, teethers, and rattles. All Bioserie products are made with bioplastic, which is a game-changer when it comes to baby products.
Products like teethers, rattles, and toys are most often made with traditional plastic, which comes with myriad environmental and health problems:
- It relies on petrochemicals (derived from oil, a finite resource) for manufacturing.
- Plastic is toxic during production; for example, PVC, widely known as the most toxic plastic, releases dioxins, phthalates, vinyl chloride, ethylene dichloride, lead, cadmium and other toxic chemicals during manufacturing.
- Plastic leeches toxic chemicals like phthalates (endocrine disruptors that are linked to reproductive malformations in baby boys, reduced fertility, developmental disorders, asthma, and increased allergic reactions) and BPA (a synthetic estrogen mimicker that studies show is linked to cancer, infertility, heart disease, and other health problems).
- Plastic takes eons to break down in the environment, anywhere from 500-1,000 years. Americans discard more than 30 tons of plastic per year—which means it’s piling up in our oceans and landfills.
In contrast, bio-based plastic like the kind that Bioserie uses is made from renewable resources, generally corn or potatoes. It breaks down far more quickly in the environment, a step in the right direction for helping to resolve our growing plastic waste problem.
And, most importantly for your baby’s health, it’s made without toxic chemicals linked to human health harm. In addition to being MADE SAFE certified, which means it’s made with safe materials not known or suspected to harm human health, Bioserie has done their own testing to ensure their bioplastic doesn’t contain endocrine disruptors like BPA or phthalates, or common chemicals in traditional plastic linked to cancer, like styrene and heavy metals.
