Green Baby & Toddler Event #10; Mother’s Corn Eco-friendly Tableware for Babies and Kids CLOSED

July 13, 2010 | Filled Under Green Baby/Toddler Event, Green Giveaways

When considering food for our children, parents often look at nutrient values to determine how healthy a food is. But, what good is healthy food if we feed our children on chemical lined tableware? Many children products are designed and manufactured using strong chemicals that can leach into food, which can not be health to consume. Not to mention many products for babies and kids are not environmentally friendly in any fashion.

Mother’s Corn, an environmentally conscious kids company, has created non-toxic, anti-bacterial, biodegradable corn plastic tableware for babies and kids. Mother’s Corn has a commitments to make the environment greener, and demonstrates it through their quality manufacturing, packaging and product usage.

Their products range from plates, spoons, forks, and cups all designed for little ones! The best thing about the Mother’s Corn products are they are affordable! Unlike some products that are safe and great for use, the cost makes them not an option for many. You’ll be shocked to find out Mother’s Corn products are about $3-$10!

BuyGreenware sent me a small plate and cup for review. Of course I agreed to test out their products and while I was waiting for them to arrive I did some research. Don’t think for a minute I just trust what companies say, because I don’t! I do my research before making any purchase or considering using it!

Honestly I had never heard of corn plastic, and had to research it some. I found out that… Polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable, thermoplastic, aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch or sugarcanes. In fact, the corm plastic is a bio-based created with sustainable processes. PLA is also considered a good alternative to petroleum-based plastics, as it is both biodegradable and has a low toxicity to humans. So know that we have established the Mother’s Corn products are safe to use, I gladly gave them a spin!

{My Thoughts On Mother’s Corn Products}

For review I got the small 6 ounce cup and small plate. Both are a creamish-yellow color with the Mother’s Corn logo. Both arrived packages in light packaging, YAY, that means less waste!

The plate is perfect size for a baby or toddler and the cup has a small handle to make it easier for little hands to hold. I love the fact the products are eco-friendly and non toxic! I worry so much about the toxicity of kids products!

Both was up well and wipe off easily. I used the cup and plate several times and so far no staining. My 2 year old has thrown the cup a few times being silly, and to my surprise it has not broke. So, the products are well made and do stand-up to toddler abuse!

{What Can Be Improved}

Honestly the only thing I can say I do not like is, they are not microwave or dishwasher safe. I wash all dishes in the dishwasher and have been washing these by hand. The good news is they do have a line of tableware that is dishwasher and microwave safe launching some time this year! Until then, I will continue to use the Mother’s Corn cup and plate and feel assured it’s safe for my most prized possessions..my kids!
