Alright moms, there’s nothing I hate more than big money winning when it comes to our children and their safety but that is exactly what is about to happen. I’ve written about BPA dangers here and here and here and given you facts that there is just cause to rid BPA from plastics and to choose alternatives.  I don’t live in California but if I did, I’d be all over this! If you live in California do something. If you don’t live in California you can still do something. Mommy bloggers are powerful and we have ways to reach hundreds and thousands of California moms, so lets do it. Just copy and paste the text below and post about this today!  There is no time to spare. Come on moms, lets stand up to the chemical industry and stand up for our children and their health and safety!

The California state Assembly is voting on two monumental bills in the next 24 hours. SB 1713 would ban bisphenol A (BPA), a hormone disruptor, from baby bottles, sippy cups, and infant formula. SB 1313 would ban cancer-causing PFCs (Teflon chemicals) from food products

California could pave the way for the nation. But we’re up against a powerful and well-funded enemy — the chemical industry. Right now, the industry’s minions are calling California households, advertising in our newspapers, and lobbying our assembly members.


It’s up to us to stop them. They may have money, but we have numbers. Our assembly members need to hear from us today.

I just called my assembly member and asked them to vote YES on SB 1713 and SB 1313. You can, too.


BPA is linked to cancer and early puberty. Canada is moving rapidly to ban it, but there are no federal standards in the U.S. PFCs are linked to cancer, too.

If we don’t stand up to the chemical industry, no one will. Tell your assembly member to support safe baby bottles, sippy cups, canned food, and food packaging — and not to cave to industry pressure.

Time is running out — don’t wait to make your voice heard. Stand up for children’s safety today.

Hello, I’m Sommer and this has been my blogging home since 2007. I’m a juggler of life, a protective mama bear and I enjoy travel, wine, sunshine and good books. I hope that through this site you’ll be able find something that inspires you to live a little greener, healthier and happier. Even if it's just a yummy recipe or a personal story of mine.


  1. Ah, methinks the lobbyists voted with their pocketbooks. But there is one way to change the minds of those who pay the lobbyists. We, as consumers, have to vote with our pocketbooks. Alternatives exist for products containing BPA so we must buy only those products. If we don’t know (they don’t tell us) then we don’t buy it. Simple as that. If we take that simple task to hand, then BPA will go away. Quickly. We won’t even need a law to make it happen, but it would be nice to have one.

  2. Thanks so much for shouting out on this issue. It makes it so much easier to wage these battles when we’re fighting alongside so many fired up advocates for a healthier environment.
