Message in a Bottle

room to grow bottle drive!

Listen, we know some of you little guys hit the bottle. Sometimes six, eight times a day. We’re not judging, but that’s a lot of bottles.

And we also know bottles are expensive — which is why Room to Grow supplies them to families who can’t afford to buy their own.

So when the good folks there found out that BPA in plastics was risky, they did what you did — threw out their entire stock of feeding supplies with the nasty chemical. Which is where you come in.

Help them refill their shelves by donating new bottles and sippy cups online at Room to Grow’s baby registry at Babies “R” Us or dropping off your extras at the nonprofit’s Back Bay location.

We’ll drink to that.
