Going green isn’t just great for your baby; it’s good for the Earth too. And plenty of companies are producing eco-friendly baby products, making it easier than ever for parents to choose ethically sourced, environmentally friendly items for baby, from bibs to carriers.
According to a Statista report from 2017, 31 percent of 156 responding U.S. consumers reported buying “(almost) only organic” products in 2017, while 33 percent purchased “mainly organic” products. A mere 4 percent of consumers said they purchased “(almost) only conventional” products. And with even more of a push for more sustainable, recyclable everyday items, including straws and even ketchup packaging, we can only expect to see more and more companies increasing their eco-friendly baby product offerings.
That said, we’ve rounded up some must-haves for eco-conscious parents that will make you glad you’re doing your part to help the planet and your family.
