Green to Grow, in the most fundamental sense, did not start as an idea for a company. It began with our commitment, as parents, to the gathering of information that would allow us to provide the best possible care for our son, to keep him healthy, and to protect him from as many dangers as we could. What we found, and continue to find in our research, is both appalling and inspiring. Appalling because humans have created an astounding array of dangers for ourselves, and especially for our children. Inspiring because there is deep and widespread commitment to addressing these dangers and to promoting healthy alternatives.
Creating a line of bisphenol A free baby bottles was our way of taking direct action where we saw a need. But while addressing a single concern is a positive step, we believe our responsibility cannot end there. In order to address the problems associated with the effects of toxic chemicals on human health and on the environment, we must join together with the larger community of those who are working for a greener and safer world. Not just for our children, though they are certainly the most vulnerable in every sense, but for all of us.
We are great believers in the power of knowledge and the necessity of direct action. The pages of our Learn section are intended to serve as a resource for parents and families, a way giving those who visit our web site greater access to the community of concern and commitment we have discovered. And we hope you’ll help us expand this access. If you discover a resource you feel we should know about and let others know about, please send us an email at email@example.com.
