What is Weil Baby? (adapted from their about page)
Andrew Weil, M.D., has devoted the past three decades to developing, practicing and teaching others about the principles of integrative medicine. The founder of Weil Lifestyle, LLC the leading resource for integrative medicine education, information products, and services, Dr. Weil combines a Harvard education and a lifetime of investigating natural and preventative medicine to provide a unique approach to health care which encompasses body, mind and spirit.
Dr. Weill personally makes nothing from products to which I license my name. I donate all of my after-tax profits from royalties from sales of Weil Baby products directly to the Weil Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting integrative medicine through training, education and research.
Why is Weil Baby green and part of Simply Green? (taken from their Smaller Carbon Footprint page)

Additionally, our packaging is made with 100% recycled paper. Our window box is made of PET, without glue, to retain 100% recyclability and our insert shell is made of a revolutionary new biodegradable material called BioMax.™
My thoughts about Weil Baby…
Weil Baby kindly sent me their WeilBaby Tritan Nurser Bottle, WeilBaby Tritan Drinking Cup, and WeilBaby pacifier to review. Little dude is a nursing baby when he can but since I do work full time he does take bottles so it is nice to give a new bottle a try. That being said, Little dude doesn’t like bottles so it was hard to judge this bottle off him. He took it as well as any other bottle for what that is worth. I will say it is nice and easy to clean since it doesn’t have a lot of extra pieces that many new bottles have! My girls gave the cup a try. I like that the handles are removable. We had handle cups when my girls were smaller and they are great so this cup will be ready for Little dude! My girls are game for just about any cup you hand them so they took to this cup immediately. I had to give it to each of them when the other wasn’t around so they wouldn’t fight over it (at 3 and 2 they find any reason they can to fight over stuff!) So if you are ready to venture into sippy cups, check out this cup because it will grow with your kids which is a great budget saver!
Weil Baby brand products are available at select Babies R Us stores but they hope to be nationwide by the end of the year!
Also Weil Baby has a $5 coupon their website right now. It should be there through the end of the year so go get it while it is there! It is at the bottom of their homepage
