Twitter Party Recap & The Today Show

The first ever BornFree Twitter Party was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who helped spread the word and to all of the lovely participants. Many prizes were given out, BPA was discussed in detail, and we learned more about our great Twitter followers.

Right as our Twitter Party started we learned that BornFree was being featured on The Today Show with Kathy Lee & Hoda! Perfect timing! The show was all about the recent FDA statement expressing concern about BPA and highlighted BPA-free solutions for parents.

Watch the clip here: http://media.vmsnews.com/MonitoringReports/012010/4383496/Z002471257/

The prizes that were give out include:

BornFree Stage 2 Pacifiers

BornFree 9oz bottles

BornFree Formula (and snack) Dispenser

Thank you, everyone!

BornFree Twitter Party!

You are cordially invited to the All Day BornFree Twitter Party taking place on Wednesday, January 20th.

In celebration of the FDA officially announcing that BPA is a concern (after years of lobbying from parents and conscious companies), we’re throwing a Twitter bash complete with gifts, contests, BPA facts, and more. The party is strictly BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle).

Don’t miss it!

Just search for the hashtag #BPAFreeWeek to follow the party and include #BPAFreeWeek at the end of every tweet about BPA and to @newbornfree on Wednesday.

BornFree Holding Briefing On BPA This Morning!

From Anne at BornFree UK:

The BPA debate is hotting up! Yesterday I blogged about the  campaign that was launched by  Breast Cancer UK calling on the Government to take action to end the use of the controversial chemical BPA in baby bottles. This call is backed by NCT, UNISON, The Women’s Environmental Network, The Cancer Prevention and Education Society and CHEM Trust.

BornFree has always opposed the use of BPA and other harmful chemicals in baby feeding products and has never ever used them, ever.

Today BornFree is hosting a breakfast media briefing at the Royal Society of Medicine, London.

The conference will cover:

  • The effect of endocrine disruptors which have been used in plastics for many years on babies and small children
  • Current Environment Protection Agency orders for testing on endocrine disruptors, and the effect of these chemicals on human development
  • Consumer reports on testing for BPA levels in canned food
  • Recent research results linking BPA levels to erectile dysfunction and decreased fertility in men

Speaking at the conference will be U.S. scientist Dr. Alan Greene and Ron Vigdor, President of BornFree USA .

We are so excited by the increased media and public awareness that is happening in the UK at the moment and we support all campaigns to ban the use of these harmful chemicals in products intended for use by children.
