Graco: bans toxic flame retardants

One of my FAVORITE websites to find out information on healthy living for little ones is "Healthy Child Healthy World".  This week I read an article that was REALLY encouraging... 

Most of us mama's own BABY stuff from Graco or know moms that do.  Graco is the nations largest Children's products manufacture. The ugly TRUTH is that lots of Graco's products like strollers and car seats, contain "unlovely" CHEMICALS

We have LEARNED that Graco is committing to ban toxic flame retardants from children's products. This is super news! Yay for Graco! Here are a few of the chemicals that they plan to ELIMINATE:

  • Tris phospate chemicals. These include TDCPP, TCEP, and TCPP. All three are either carcinogens or suspected carcinogens. 
  • Firemaster 550. A toxic mixture of ingredients that are up for review by the EPA due to its potential health risk. 
In ADDITION, Graco is being asked to "disclose chemicals contained in their products and develop an alternative assessment system to ensure chemicals are inherently SAFER and lower hazard."

Orbit Baby and Britax have already been on the BANDWAGON to eliminate hazardous flame retardants. 

Read more about Orbit Baby's COMMITMENT to designing beautifully crafted products, along with keeping it safe and free of harmful and unnecessary chemicals HERE.

I just might have to get an orbit NEXT time around :)

In the mean time....

Here are some pics of our family...with our Graco stroller :)

A TRIP to Redondo Beach, CA was all we needed to GET AWAY for a day!
