California will ban BPA from baby cups:

California governor Jerry Brown signed into law a bill that bans bisphenol A from baby bottles and sippy cups sold in the state, starting in July of 2013. The Environmental Working Group had been pushing the law, which is called the Toxin-Free Infants and Toddlers Act and requires that manufacturers sub in the "least toxic alternative available" for hormone-disrupting BPA. It's almost too bad that the law will take so long to go into effect. Given the number of parents out there who'd probably prefer not to be lacing their kids apple juice with toxins, sippy cup exports from California could probably give the state and the shipping industry an economic boost.
