Growing up in a family of scientists led Kevin to appreciate the gap between emerging science and the communication of important findings to the people that would benefit from them the most. After a stint within the world of technology, Kevin returned to his roots joining a lab funded by the National Institutes of Health. The lab was focused on harmful chemicals leaching from consumer products (specifically Endocrine Disrupting chemicals), it soon became clear that this issue was global and the effects of these chemicals were causing an increase in everything from cancer, diabetes to learning disabilities.
After unsuccessfully trying to get consumer product companies to change formulations and being too cantankerous to try and push the slow wheels of government entities, Kevin opted to take the first step to address the issue directly. In 2007, he stood up Thinkbaby and Thinksport, which created the 1st 100% BPA free baby bottle line, 1st BPA free insulated sports bottle line and the 1st sunscreen line to pass Whole Foods Premium Care requirements. The company’s products made their way into over 27k locations globally before being acquired in 2020. Kevin has since created another venture called BRIXY. With BRIXY, the company launched a line of “waterless beauty” products from bar shampoo, bar conditioner and bar format body care with the goal of removing excess plastic waste created by consumer products. As part of BRIXY’s focus on social and environmental responsibility, Kevin has also stood up a non-profit called ECOEVO.World. The 501c3 is focused on bringing back the beauty of natural habitats and taking on Climate Change head on.
Barry A. Cik is the Founder and Technical Director of Naturepedic, a manufacturer of award-winning certified organic and non-toxic mattresses for babies, children and adults. As a professionally trained board-certified environmental engineer, Barry combines his authentic passion for improving our quality of life with the technical knowledge to do so.
When shopping for his first grandchild’s crib mattress, he was horrified to discover firsthand the state of the baby mattress industry. From that moment on, Barry was inspired and determined to create safe and sustainable mattress products that were not only in the best interest of his grandchild, but also for environmentally-minded parents to use for their children. Working in tandem with his sons Jeffrey and Jason, Barry established Naturepedic in 2003.
His devotion to the organic industry is the natural result of his lifelong interest in preserving the environment not only for us, but for all future generations as well. He is an advocate for legislative reform, and was invited to testify in Washington, D.C. for a congressional subcommittee hearing exploring chemical reform. Barry frequently speaks before scientific, consumer, political and business audiences on the benefits of sustainable product design.
