Hygeia is committed to the environment and making the earth a Greener place for new parents and babies.
Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2009
Hygeia II Medical Group Inc announces the launch of the first Green breastpump for new parents who are concerned about the growing problem of proliferating landfills with baby products.
With the birth rate topping 4 million newborns every year, conservative estimates are that at least 2 million breastpumps are purchased annually by new parents. Most of these pumps end up in landfills even though they may have been used for just a few days or weeks. The leading breastpump manufacturers have designated these pumps as single-user devices, and the FDA states that these type of pumps can be not be shared between mothers.
A new company, Hygeia, has come on the market with a "Go Green solution". The Hygeia EnJoye™ Breastpump was designed and is registered with the FDA as a multi-user product. When a Hygeia consumer no longer needs her breastpump, it can be re-used by a friend or family member when each mother has her own personal accessory set. This means fewer pumps in the landfills.
Re-usable breastpumps are not new to hospitals which use expensive durable medical breastpumps that few consumers can afford to buy or want to carry around. The breakthrough is Hygeia's adaptation of this leading hospital technology into a consumer retail product that's portable, economical and safe for re-use between mothers. All the parts that touch a mother or her milk are part of her personal accessory set.
In addition to less pumps in the dumps, the Hygeia Enjoye breastpump features an optional reusable lithium ion battery. This rechargeable battery will last for up to four hours of use, and is another Green feature. Competitive breastpumps typically use multiple AA batteries that end up in landfills after use.
John Estill, CEO of Hygeia, states that "Hygeia is committed to the environment and making the earth a Greener place for new parents and babies."
