Thinkbaby and Thinksport's founder, Kevin Brodwick brought his interest in health and preventative medicine and his background in biotechnology together to form a company whose sole purpose is to create alternative products for little ones to adults.
With a team of physicians and scientists focused on the latest chemical and biological science, Thinkbaby and Thinksport continue to lead in the usage of safe materials for consumer products. Our efforts are further energized by working with both our leading child advocacy partners and like-minded individuals who seek alternative products.
"It became clear during my work within a biological testing lab (non-animal) that products on the market were fraught with issues. It didn’t matter if the product was made in China, the US or Switzerland, there were chemicals leaching that had the potential to cause endocrine disruption, cancer and reproductive harm. It also became quickly clear that government regulation was not on the near horizon. So Thinkbaby and Thinksport set off to create alternatives. The company first identified baby bottle, as 95% of the bottles on the market were composed of Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that is suspected to disrupt the endocrine system. We then proceeded to target other products within the baby feeding realm and were led by parents to design a sports bottle. Thinkbaby and Thinksport approaches each product category with the same criteria. Safe. Functional. Sustainable.
The first line in the sand that we draw surrounds material safety. We don’t jump on new materials just because they are free of one chemical. The reason is that the potential for landing on some other potentially harmful chemical exists. Instead, we stay keenly focused on the latest emerging studies. We should also add that we understand the difference from valid science and industry-funded science. We won't work with scientists or doctors that endorse specific products. You can buy doctors like that anywhere, and its bad medicine in our opinion.
