Safe-keeping for Liquid Gold
Do you know how long it takes for plastic to break down?
According to scientific studies, many plastics take hundreds (or even thousands!) of years to degrade. It doesn’t simply just disappear once you’ve finished using it – it breaks down into billions of tiny particles that litter our beaches, pollute our landfills and fill our oceans.
Plastic leaves such an enormous, devastating and wasteful impact on our environment, especially considering the fact that around 50% of plastic is only used once and then thrown away. The battle against single-use plastics has seen countries all over the world, including New Zealand, step up to eliminate single-use plastic shopping bags.
Why do we still use plastic storage bags for our precious liquid gold?
Instead of having to rely on single-use plastic breast milk storage bags, the team at Haakaa have worked hard to bring you a new, eco-friendly solution to help you safely store your precious breast milk. Say hello to their latest innovation – the Silicone Breast Milk Storage Bag!
Kinder to Mother Earth
Made of 100% food grade silicone, Haakaa’s new Silicone Breast Milk Storage Bags are super durable and can be reused over and over again. This reduces the impact we leave on the environment by minimising our use of plastic and helps to preserve the planet for the future of our little ones!
It’s not just the accumulation of plastic that harms our environment – it’s also the fragments and toxins released by plastic during the process of breaking down. These nasties pollute our soil and water and end up harming our health as well!
Silicone, unlike plastic, won’t break down or degrade when it’s disposed of, which makes it better for our environment. Large silicone pieces are less likely to be ingested by sea creatures, meaning it’s more ocean-friendly and reduces the amount of dangerous floating plastic that harms our marine life. Silicone can also be recycled after a lifetime of use at specialised recycling companies, where it can then be repurposed instead of just going to the landfill. Another win for the environment!
Safer for your Little Ones
Not only is silicone a better choice for the planet, but it’s a safer choice for your little one as well! Plastic is often made with many harmful chemicals, which leaches into the food and drink it comes in contact with – especially when heated. Once in the body, these chemicals mimic hormones and disrupt the endocrine system, which is incredibly harmful to human health - particularly during the vital, early developmental stages of a child. This is definitely not something you want near your baby’s food!
Unlike single-use plastic storage bags, Haaka’s Silicone Breast Milk Storage Bags contain NO toxins whatsoever as silicone essentially just sand and oxygen. It is considered a much safer material for food and drink as it’s non-porous, won’t react with chemicals and won’t leach. This makes silicone perfect for storing your precious breast milk!
The Silicone Breast Milk Storage Bag is fridge and freezer safe and comes with a leakproof stopper to keep your milk secure when you’re on-the-go – perfect for busy mums (aren’t we all?!). They’re safer for the environment, and safer for our little ones, making them the ideal choice for storing any mama’s liquid gold!
