In honor of Earth Day this week, we wanted to share some of our favorite Earth Friendly Baby Products with you. There are many, many more that we don’t list but here are some of our favorites.
Fleurville Re-Run Messenger Diaper Bag: Not only does the Re-Run Messenger bag look great but it’s functional and because this diaper bag is made it out of recycled plastic bottle fabric, it keeps ten (10) 600ml plastic water bottles out of landfill. How great is that? It comes in 6 colors and our favorite is the Re-Run Chocolate Bottle Flower
Baby Planet Strollers: What makes Baby Planet eco-friendly is their fabulous recycling program. In an effort to help the environment, the company will help recycle your Baby Planet stroller when your child has outgrown it. It works in two different ways. 1) When you are done with your stroller and there is still some life left in it, Baby Planet will pay for you to ship it back to them, they will clean and fix it up, make it look almost new and donate it to a charity so that a family in need receives it. 2) When you are done with your stroller and you have basically used it up completely and it’s no longer road worthy or functional, Baby Planet will pay for you to ship it back to them and they will send the metal, fabric and plastic parts to a recycling center to keep it out of a landfill. In fact, they care about the environment so much that they will happily accept any brand of stroller for recycling. Way to go Baby Planet!!
Natural Mat: Organic crib mattresses that are made with no chemicals, no plastics and no PVC. Natural Mat combines the finest natural and organic raw materials including lambs wool, natural latex foam, mohair and cotton.
All of the ImagiPlay’s wooden toys are natural, made of rubberwood, bamboo or managed forest basswood preservative free and lead free.
California Baby is an all-natural line of baby shampoo, lotion and body wash. Besides being all-natural, the company uses a green-packaging policy that includes: minimal packaging, recycled paper and soy inks for product info tags and literature, biodegradable packing peanuts and recycling of all production and packaging plastics. The Earth would be proud!
Thought there were only two diaper choices – Cloth or Disposable? Meet GDiapers! They are the third option: flushable. “gDiapers have no elemental chlorine, no perfumes, no smell, no garbage and no guilt. In fact, flushables are so gentle on the Earth you can even garden compost the wet ones in one compost cycle, approximately 50 – 150 days.” Everything that goes into one of their flushables gets re-absorbed back into the eco-system in a neutral or beneficial way.
