Kevin Brodwick, Founder of Thinkbaby. With over 15 years' experience assisting companies from product development to sales, Kevin Brodwick created Thinksport and Thinkbaby to address the growing concern and need for safer products. After working with a laboratory funded by the National Institute of Health (specifically focused on testing products for estrogenic activity - the largest type of endocrine disruptor), Mr. Brodwick became aware of extent to which harmful chemicals were present in everyday products. In 2006, after unsuccessfully convincing several large companies to alter formulation, Mr. Brodwick took it upon himself to create an alternative line of consumer products. Thinkbaby and Thinksport address the growing concern of toxic chemicals leaching from consumer products and aim to create safe alternatives for babies to athletes alike.
