The first thing I noticed when reading the classic book “Goodnight Moon” to my son were those dark green walls in the baby rabbit’s room; yuck! Today’s “green” room is filled with earth-friendly products made from recycled and reusable materials to keep excess waste from landfills. Organic fabrics play their part too, since they aren’t treated with chemicals which affect the air and water supplies.
A growing demand for stylish yet responsible infant products has encouraged designers and manufacturers to think outside the plain, recycled cardboard box. The newest eco-friendly clothing, toys and related gear can be found in a wide range of price ranges. Here’s a round-up of our top picks:
Cloud B’s award-winning Twilight Turtle, Sleep Sheep and Lullawraps have made their way into the homes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Katie Holmes, and Angelina Jolie. Their new eco-friendly plush collection includes the Polar Cuddle Cub, made of soy fabric. The Dozy Dolphin and Dozy Dolphin On The Go are both constructed with a fabric made from bamboo, a fast-growing, sustainable material quickly making its way into the design of many consumer products.
