If you have kids then you have plastic tableware. Plates that are faded and scratched on the surface, place mats that are wrinkled with tears and plastic storage containers that have lost their lids. My kids are tough on tableware and it drives me nuts. But there is no way I am handing over my nice plates to my kids who are still in the butterfingers stage. But plastic bothers me. They are not really eco-friendly and with BPA and other chemicals in them to make them, I wish there were a better option. The other day, I received Brinware, a new and wonderful tableware for kids that will solve our concerns over plastic and decorate the kids place setting with style!
Glass has been a trusted material for use on many products, including baby bottles for years. By nature, glass is free of BPA, so you don’t have to worry about keeping track of numbers of different plastics to figure out whether they are safe or not. But give it to toddlers and young kids? No way? Luckily, these kid’s tableware items are made of tempered glass! This style of dish glass is “physically and thermally stronger than regular glass because of the rapid heating and cooling process it endures during manufacturing. The plates are rolled through an oven, which heats it to more than 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heated glass is rapidly cooled causing the surface of the glass to contract faster than the center giving it added strength.”
But still… kids and glass? So, Brinware wraps their tempered glass items in a silicone sleeve! Silicone is basically made of silicon (which occurs naturally in sand and rock), carbon, oxygen and hydrogen and therefore is not petroleum based. It is non-toxic, hypoallergenic and will not retain odors. Importantly it does not contain toxic chemicals like bishpenol-A, lead, PVC or phthalates. It is super durable so you can boil it, microwave it and dish wash it. Learn more about the company’s product details and by reviewing these FAQs.
From bibs to beautiful plates and placemats, Brinware is bringing safer style back to the kid’s dinner table. I LOVE these and would have totally used them when my girls were younger. They use them now and I love the super easy clean up, the colorful patterns and the safety of the plates. I want some more of the Food Storage Containers and love the wrap around silicone tops!
We moms have enough to worry about without having to be concerned about what is in our kids tableware! So check out Brinware Online or at select retailers and give your kids color and style as they enjoy dinner!
