Toxin-Free in the Kitchen: Cups & Bottles

Plastic is a tricky one to avoid these days, but we do our best. If you are looking to make a transition away from plastic, an easy (and important) place to begin is with your drinkware—at home and away. Here is what we use:

Adults: We use glass cups (1), ceramic mugs (2) and stainless steel travel thermoses (3) and cups (4).

Children & Babies: We transition from bottles (8) to regular glass (5) and stainless steel cups (4) as quickly as possible with toddlers, but there is still a time and a place for sippy cups (7) and thermoses (6).  If you don’t feel comfortable with your young child using glass (we’ve had very few breaks), stainless steel cups are the perfect solution. I don’t know why it isn’t more popular! For their glass cups, we just use a small version of our adult glasses and for the stainless steel cups, we all share the same ones. We’ve used Dr. Brown’s glass bottles for both babies, and we have never had a single chip or crack. Highly recommend!
