Why Ahimsa?

more than 80% of baby and children's feeding products are plastic
Plastic harms human health

The word is out.

Research continues to report the problem with plastic.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that harmful chemicals found in plastic - called Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) - interfere with children's Hormones, Growth & Brain Development
Research shows that by decreasing your exposure to these plastic chemicals the levels in your body can drop dramatically within just 3 days
  • Eat FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES instead of processed foods or canned foods. (All cans have detectable levels of bisphenols in the lining.)

  • If you do use plastic containers, DON’T PUT THEM IN THE MICROWAVE OR IN THE DISHWASHER as the heat and cleaning agents increase the leaching of chemicals out of plastic.

  • Don’t use your plastic if you notice it’s ETCHED OR SCRATCHED.

  • Avoid plastic bottles with the numbers 3, 6 OR 7

  • USE GLASS OR STAINLESS STEEL for serving and storing food and drink instead of plastic. Ahimsa steel is a great option!

The problem.

We all know that plastic is bad for the planet.
But did you know that plastic is also bad for your child’s health?

The parallel.

Remember when we found out lead was harmful?
Plastic is now painting a similar picture.

The solution.

Don’t worry! We have some simple ways to limit exposure to plastic.

  • The levels of detectable synthetic plastic chemicals in the human body should be ZERO

  • Unfortunately, NEW TESTING methods show levels in the body are far higher than previously thought

  • DON’T WORRY,
    Research shows that by decreasing your exposure to these chemicals, the levels in the body can drop dramatically within just
    3 DAYS
