Eco-friendly baby gift registry

Creating a baby gift registry is exciting, especially if you’re a first-time mum… and if you are environmentally conscious, it gets even more challenging. Now, with so many choices out there, where and how do you start? Here’s are some quick tips for you:

If you are listing…

A crib
Choose one that’s made of sustainable wood material, water based finishes, low VOC’s and meets safety standards.

Crib mattresses

Look at all the material of the crib mattresses. Some of them may not be 100% organic (could be just the cover or the filling).

Nappies

Did you know that you can fill your house with all those disposable nappies you are going use in your baby’s first year? We agree that cloth diapering isn’t for everyone, however, there are many options now. Check online for disposable, environment-safe or reusable nappies. Then again, there’s also an option for diaper service.

Clothes

There are a bunch of organic cotton material baby clothing  out there. List the ones you’ll use immediately and maybe some that’s one size bigger. Yes, babies grow really quick!

Feeding materials

List the ones that are BPA-free, Phthalate-free and PVC-free.
