About

Tabor Place was founded by a Millennial Mom who just wanted a sippy cup that wasn't completely made out of plastic. The FDA banned BPAs from all baby bottles & sippy cups in 2012 - but starting within that same year, studies showed that BPA-free plastic is just as toxic. No plastic is safe for kids to drink out of - and the toxic impacts of plastic will follow our children throughout their life. Legacy materials have been proven to be safe for generations - glass & wood. Which is why Tabor Place was founded - to have the ease of functionality of something modern, without the harsh toxins from plastic. There's a lot to worry about these days, and we're all way busier than we should be. Be Smart, Keep it Simple.

Founding Story

In 2017, Beatrice was working in Manhattan and pregnant with her first son, Luca. By then, BPAs had been banned by the FDA in all baby bottles and sippy cups - yet almost single bottle & cup on the market was still made of plastic. Beatrice couldn't believe it - multitudes of studies as early as 2012 had already proven that all plastic was harmful to babies, even if it was BPA-free.

Yet everything available for her to buy for her newborn was still plastic.

Why couldn't things be simple for a busy parent?

So she decided to make her own - she built her company and designed her product on the commuter train coming in and out of Grand Central every day (commute was 1 hour 20 minutes each way!) - and by Fall 2019 launched her first glass sippy cup to a close group of Mommy friends from all over the country. She named her company, Tabor Place, after her great grandfather Clarence Tabor, who was a residental archeitect - he built homes for functionality but with a timeless simplicity. By early Spring 2020, Tabor Place was thriving on Amazon, and she was already pregnant with her 2nd boy. She lost her job during the pandemic - and Tabor Places' sales skyrocketed. She wasn't the only parent who wanted high quality materials & smart design.

She's since relocated to Northern California where she lives with husband of 15 years and 2 sons, and continues to research endocrine disruptors, the food supply chain - and how harmful plastics can be to future generations.

She's got multiple plastic-free products in the works for 2023 - and can't wait to make it easier for busy parents to use less plastic.

Team Bios

Raised in Southern California, Beatrice was always a builder - she studied literature & creative writing, and received a professional Fine Arts Certificate in Writing by the age of 17. She started her degree in one of her passions, investigative journalism - but within a few months, witnessed the disruption of print media, as over 50% of local newspapers shut down or were overtaken by national conglomerates. Disheartened by her lack of future career options, she decided to pivot and dive into another passion of hers - Culinary sciences. She studied Food Science & Culinary Arts at the San Francisco California Culinary Academy, and ended up working in some of the most high-profile fine dining kitchens in San Francisco (at the height of the restaurant boom in the early 2000's). After working her way up to Executive Chef & consulting for almost a decade, she decided to pivot again -and jumpstart a new career into Retail strategy. She worked as a Corporate HRBP director for a major luxury national retailer, creating initatives & future strategies for innovation.

She'd kept her passion for investigative journalism, and use her skills to research what was academically proven to be best - especially when she had her first son in 2017. By then, BPAs had been banned by the FDA in all baby bottles and sippy cups - yet almost single bottle & cup on the market was still made of plastic. Beatrice couldn't believe it - multitudes of research as early as 2012 had already proven that all plastic was harmful to babies, even if it was BPA-free.
