Protect our planet by making small changes to your lifestyle because every small change will eventually make a big impact.
Below we’ve outlined a handful of eco-friendly products that are leading the way in conscious consumerism. Into it? Read on for more!
As time goes by, more and more stroller companies are producing products with our planet in mind.
One of our favourite products is the Bumbleride Indie, which features durable recycled fabric and air-filled tires, perfect for any adventure you had in mind. The Bumbleride Era - Reversible Stroller is another excellent choice for eco-conscious parents. The textiles, aluminum, and plastics that are used to make Bumbleride products are carefully chosen for durability, safety, and function, but also for their environmental impact. Bumbleride fabrics are made from 100% recycled PET (which is post-consumer water bottles, rPET, polyethylene terephthalate).
We also love Baby Jogger's Eco Collection, which contains Tencel fibers with ecosoft technology. You can learn more about this collection, here.
CHANGE PADS FOR CHANGE
The NOOK Pebble Change Pad is breathable, non-toxic, made with organic materials and the list goes on...!
The certified non-toxic foam core provides contoured support while your baby is being changed. The cover is made with all-natural eucalyptus and is stain resistant, waterproof, removable, and washable.
PACIFIERS THAT DON'T SUCK
Natursutten is a company that offers environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable pacifiers, meaning, you don't need to worry about adding waste to the planet.
Natursutten Pacifiers are made from pure, natural rubber from the tree Hevea Brasiliensi. The protein that on rare occasions can provoke a latex allergy is removed from the rubber mass used for these soothers. This means, that there is no risk of latex allergy when using them – double score!
Reusable diapers help to slow the growth of our landfills, yay for less waste!
Cloth diapering is having its moment and we aren't mad about it—neither is Mother Earth. Companies like Kanga Care, bumGenius, AppleCheeks, and GroVia are the ultimate in form and function, combining effective leak control with cute designs.
