Happy baby wrapped in fuzzy green blanket.Babies sure are cute, but despite their small size, they still have a significant impact on the environment! Ensure your baby is raised in an environmentally- friendly household, which is excellent for your baby’s health and the planet! Here are 5 easy tips on how to reduce the environmental impact of your new bundle of joy.

Sustainable Nurseries

From Day 1 your eco baby can be living a healthy, green lifestyle!

  • When painting the nursery, use non- toxic paints such as plant or milk- based paints. Some types of paints contain lead, which can be harmful to your baby’s health.
  • Make sure to cover your baby’s bed in warm and cozy organic, natural fabrics, which do not contain any unsafe chemicals!

Healthy Food Choices

Ensure your eco baby receives a healthy, environmentally- friendly diet!

  • Whenever possible, nurse your baby instead of formula feeding. There are many health advantages of breast feeding, plus there is no unneeded packaging involved
  • When your eco baby becomes old enough to eat solid foods, make your own baby food!
  • Do you prefer to buy your baby’s food? If so, be sure to reduce, re-use and recycle all the packaging!

Dressing your Eco- Baby

Dress up your little bundle of joy in stylish, eco- friendly trends!

  • Buy gently- used baby clothes from a second- hand store or get free clothesonline
  • Let your eco baby be a trend- setter! Try to dress up your baby in clothing made from hemp, which has environmental advantages.
  • Be sure to wash your baby’s stylish new garments in biodegradable laundry detergent

Durable Diapers

Did you know that over 4 million disposable diapers are discarded in Canada daily? You can help make a difference!

  • Keep in mind that cloth diapers are reusable
  • Be sure to wash cloth diapers in biodegradable detergent and to dry the diapers outside whenever possible
  • If you choose to use disposable diapers, make sure you empty their contents into the toilet before throwing them out!

Eco-Toys

Feel great about spoiling your eco baby with lots of sustainable toys

  • Buy your baby’s toys from second- hand sources, and be sure to clean them with environmentally- friendly, non- toxic, home made cleaning products
  • If you choose to buy new toys, make sure the toys are well- made and durable, so they can eventually be passed on to other children

There are many affordable ways to reduce your eco baby’s environmental impact while keeping your baby healthy and happy. Remember: a green baby is a healthy baby!
