About us

Little Green Table began with the search for the safest and greenest feeding products for my own children. Frustrated with plastic baby bottles that could leach chemicals, lunchboxes with hinges that break, plastic cups that absorb food odours and lunch bags that were difficult to clean - I decided there must be a better way. My oldest child was only two and already I had a pile of items that were unusable and ready for the recycling bin (or worse still headed for land-fill - even in 2009-10 the overall plastics recycling rate in Australia was just 19.2%.*)

With plastic being the only option at many traditional outlets, I wondered where parents could turn to find a range of safe and green feeding products made from alternative materials. My search led me to discover a number of creative and highly responsible companies who were developing innovative products made from the safest and greenest materials available - stainless steel, glass, silicone, bamboo and organic cotton to name a few. The best of these products now grace our Little Green Table.

Safe


Here at Little Green Table we seek products that are free from toxins such as lead, BPA and phthalates and are easy-to-clean without the use of strong chemicals. We naturally expect the products we purchase for our families day-to-day are safe, however the great majority of chemicals used in commerce today have not been tested to determine their impact on human health.** Babies and small children in particular are at risk from exposure to chemicals because of their small body weight and rapid growth, in addition to their higher food consumption in proportion to their body size.

Easy-to-use

All products at Little Green Table have been trialled in my own home to ensure ease-of-use under appropriate conditions. For example - stainless steel bottles are ideal for families on the go, while glassware is a good choice for use under adult supervision at the dining table. Ceramic or bamboo bowls are best for serving hot food, however unbreakable stainless steel plates and bowls are perfect for a picnic indoors or out. Babies should never be left alone to bottle feed, nor should children be allowed to walk or run whilst using bottles.

Eco-friendly


Here at Little Green Table we believe we can all make a difference by minimising the use of single-use plastic bags and other packaging, and by choosing re-usable feeding products that are easy-to-clean and hard-wearing. While products made from materials such as stainless steel and glass still require energy to manufacture, distribute and ultimately recycle, the items we chose to stock are re-usable, durable and designed to last. These products are made from high quality materials and are recyclable (although you won't need to worry about this for a long time). Now it's easy to help the environment while also caring for the health of your family.

We welcome you to join us at our Little Green Table and hope we’ve made your job easier when it comes to choosing safe, easy-to-use and eco-friendly feeding products for babies and children aged 0-6 years!
