Last week a Safe Mama reader emailed us to let us know that the company that manufacturers Dr. Brown’s bottles, Handi-Craft, is matching up to 3 bottles per household. All you have to do is send in your UPC codes to the company and they’ll send you back new polypropylene bottles. I spoke with a representative to confirm this, and it is indeed true. However, they’re only sending out polypropylene (a safe plastic) bottles back, even if you purchase glass, just because they don’t have enough glass bottles to currently meet the demand for this particular program. Still, it’s nice to know that they’re helping consumers to replenish their bottle collection with a BPA free alternative. While they still maintain BPA’s safeness and they still are continuing to make polycarbonate bottles, they understand their customers’ concerns. If you’re looking for the newer polypropylene bottles in the stores, they’re pretty easy to find. They’re an opaque plastic with blue ink and there should be a big BPA free sticker on the package.
Now, onto the good stuff. To get your free bottles, simply mail your UPC codes (up to 3) to:
4433 Fyler Avenue
St. Louis, Missouri 63116
Your receipt is not necessary.
Thanks to the Safe Mama reader who tipped us off about this great program!
UPDATE 8/1/08: Another SafeMama reader to the rescue! Someone tipped us off that this promotion ended on 6/30/08. They’re no longer honoring the matching program. Thanks SafeMama reader.
