As you may have read in newspapers and seen on TV, The Swedish Food Agency in Sweden has gone out with a warning that most of the bamboo products on the market are mixed with different types of plastics and formaldehyde that are harmful to children. Furthermore, the SFA warned consumers to be extra careful of any organic products which are infused with petroleum plastics. You can see the full article on The Swedish Food Agency website.
This is often done because bamboo fibers are easier to break and biodegrade, and the mass manufacturers want a quick and cheap way to make the product stronger so they mix in plastics which are harmful and not eco-friendly.
We at Miniware distanced ourselves from this way of producing products right from the start and have instead led the development of petroleum plastic-free and chemical-free organic products. This is despite the significantly more expensive manufacturing cost that this entailed. Our persistence to stay true to the origin is to make sure Miniware can offer the best and safest products for babies. We are sure that parents around the world appreciate and understand the seriousness of this, including the additional cost that can come with better and safer products for children.
We can proudly say that we are one of the few players in the market that manufactures our products with only natural materials completely free of melamine, plastic, parabens, and formaldehyde. You can see how many warnings and guides we have drafted for years helping to educate our clients to stay healthy and practice true Eco-living, and below are a few of those articles published over the past 3 years:
We take great care in using materials with a low-impact on the environment and that are safe and healthy for the little ones to use every day, and this with no exception.
Our PLA is strengthened to support everyday modern family life with durable products. It is dishwasher safe, microwave safe, and much less brittle compared to most plant-based materials. Additionally, no toxins or heavy metals are leached into the environment. We constantly strive to be environmentally friendly in all our production stages as much as possible and always attempt to achieve even more sustainable alternatives.
Our suppliers meet both FDA (U.S. Federal Department of Agriculture) and LFGB (German food contact grade testing) standards. All finished products are tested to ensure the production process doesn’t contain any heavy metals or chemical additives.
We at Miniware will continue to work with and lead the development of safer and toxic-free products for children as this is our basic philosophy and why we are in the market. This is the time for you to take action as an important platform within the mother and baby market! Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions about this subject.
