ECOlunchbox founder, Sandra Ann Harris, on her ECOlunchbox journey and the importance of plastic-free living

My Story Began At Lunchtime ECOlunchbox founder, Sandra Ann Harris, on her ECOluncbox journey and the importance of plastic-free living. Change is a curious thing. The world around us can feel stagnant for so long and all of sudden we look up and everything is different. Think about plastic for a moment. It wasn’t too long ago that we didn’t think much about this ubiquitous petroleum-based material. I founded ECOlunchbox in 2009. When it comes to plastic, that was the dark ages. But these days, the BYO bag is in full swing, plastic bag bans are cropping up around the …

aLoo device protects breast milk from backwash for safer bottles

aLoo is a recently released device that blocks backwash from contaminating a baby’s bottle, and allows parents to keep breastmilk fresher longer. It is designed to fasten to the cap/nipple portion of a bottle. Designed by a physician and first-time mother, aLoo allows caregivers to stop pouring precious “liquid gold” breastmilk down the drain due to backwash. Backwash is made up of millions of bacteria from a baby’s mouth. Once backwash enters the breast milk through a bottle’s nipple, it can feed off of the nutrients in the milk and rapidly grow. With aLoo, a bottle not yet empty can …

Baby Comfy Hydrator designed to keep kids safely hydrated

Baby Comfy Hydrator was developed by Elise and Peter Champe to combine the best features of a sippy cup and a syringe. With a 2.5 oz. capacity, it’s a little larger than a medicine syringe and it has a sippy cup mouthpiece to provide a smooth, familiar drinking tip for a child. But the Baby Comfy Hydrator has a much smaller volume than standard sippy cups, which are generally 8-12 oz. When a child becomes lethargic due to initial stage dehydration, it is simply not adequate to hand them a sippy cup or a Pedialyte pop and expect them to …
