With its eco and child-friendly nature, silicone is toxin free and manufactured to provide many years’ worth of use. Through thoughtful design, Baby Boosa creates sustainable and contemporary products, to not only support the environment, but you and your little ones on your parenting journey. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of silicone.
Silicone is a naturally derived, durable yet soft material and a safe transition from harsh plastic. As discussed in Forbes, “food-grade silicone is a non-toxic polymer mostly made from silica (sand).” It’s BPA free, better for the environment and of course, your little ones! Its versatility means it’s perfect for weaning, exploring and playtime. Our silicone baby products are all 100% food-grade and dentist approved!
Our silicone is known for its buttery softness. As we mentioned in our previous blog, we had some challenging experiences with hard plastic baby products. The catalyst for starting our business was the incentive to create the most comfortable bib possible because of our own personal experiences. In silicone, we found the perfect material to achieve our goal of safe, comfortable and award-winning weaning and developmental essentials.
Sustainable Support for YouLoved by parents and babies alike for their velvety texture and comfortable experience in use, silicone baby products can support your parenting journey. Silicone aids the perfect introduction to weaning. One of its many benefits is that it’s super easy to clean, helping to make life with your little one as undemanding as possible. Our products allow mess to be simply wiped away, or easier still, put in the dishwasher! Silicone is flexible and foldable making our products easy to store at home and great for when you’re out and about.
Due to the nature of the material, our essentials are shatterproof, and some of our plates and bowls come with an entirely suction-based bottom; this helps them stay rooted to the table reducing any messy spills! Importantly, silicone baby products have a high resistance to extreme temperatures and damage. Their durability makes them suitable for the microwave, oven, fridge or freezer, without contaminating the food. Plastic cannot withstand these temperatures and releases harmful micro-plastics into solids to be consumed. Silicone really offers all the safety and practicality benefits parents need.
Environmentally SpeakingSilicone baby products are not just an investment for your growing family but a step towards a more environmentally friendly future, as well. Re-useable food grade silicone can be a safe, sustainable and convenient alternative to plastic, helping to target plastic pollution.
Plastic doesn’t decompose; instead, it breaks down into pieces of micro-plastics, making it incredibly harmful to wildlife. Silicone will not break down into smaller pieces, therefore taking away that environmental risk. When the time comes, you can enquire about our recycling programme or take the items to a recycling centre. Additionally, harmful chemical like phthalates and bisphenol A (BPA) are not used and with silicone lasting a lot longer than standard plastic, you’ll get more use out of your products and generate less plastic waste.
All Baby Boosa products come in a luxury storage bag that you can re-use for day-to-day activities, or shopping convenience. We choose a re-useable pouch over single use plastic packaging that needs to be instantly discarded. In fact, we have a zero-single-use plastic policy for our packaging, taking responsibility for the environmental impacts that we can control!
