Updated: Jun 12
Previously you read about sustainable pregnancy but also for your newborn, there are lots of products great for your baby, for the planet and the environment as well.
Below you will find 10 of the best zero waste baby products, which all parents will simply love. So, let's begin.
Baby skin is very sensitive and requires special care and attention.
Formulated for the most delicate skin, this reef-safe, zero waste sunscreen stick is hypoallergenic. It features gentle ingredients such as coconut oil, chamomile, calendula, and sunflower seed oil. It is super light, creamy, and easy to apply. Moreover, it does not sting the eyes. Since non-nano zinc oxide is its only active ingredient, it provides UVA-UVB proper broad-spectrum protection and is water-resistant beyond 80 minutes!
The best toys for the little ones are those made of natural materials and painted with bright safe colors. This Grimms mini baby rattle will keep your baby entertained for a long time, and you will be calm because you know it does not contain anything that could possibly harm your baby, such as artificial colors or parts made of plastic.
We love cloth diapers but know it is not for everyone. A reusable swim diaper is. These diapers are perfect to use in the pool or whenever you go swimming and on vacation. It is the most straightforward swim diaper to use, and no additional diapers are needed with it.
Your little one will spend a lot of time laying their little head on your nursing pillow; keep your baby safe and healthy with this organic pillow. Remain calm while nursing, knowing that harsh chemicals and synthetic materials do not surround your baby. You can add an organic case for this nursing pillow if you wish so.
Reusable baby wipes are fantastic for not only newborn babies but for kids of all ages (because they very often get smudges all over their faces). This set of 10 all-natural cloths does not contain added chemicals, which is best for babies' delicate skin. Not only is it very eco-friendly but also quite cost-effective as you do not need to buy disposable wipes.
The cloths can be utilized as napkins for all uses around the house. In addition, they can be used as unpaper towels to remove makeup (but no nail polish!) and clean your face as well.
Organic reusable nursing pads are fantastic when you are breastfeeding. These pads are made with incredibly soft organic bamboo and super absorbent hemp. When using these reusable pads, you are not exposing yourself to chemicals that might be found in non-organic disposable ones. The nursing pads are made with a double layer of (certified) organic fabric.
Your baby started teething? Help your little one with a simple solution–a teething necklace. This Baltic Amber Teething Necklace is made from 100% amber sourced from the Baltic region. It naturally acts as a pain-relieving agent. In addition, the resin from the amber beads releases a naturally occurring acid that is absorbed in the skin. This acid has anti-inflammatory properties and relieves teething ailments. Unsure about necklaces on your baby? You can always wrap it around the wrist or ankle since this product should only be worn. It is essential to mention that the child should never be left unattended while wearing this item.
During the baby's first year of life, they will use as much as 2,500 disposable diapers–and most conventional diapers are made from synthetic materials and can contain harsh chemicals. Not only can they harm the baby, but it takes hundreds of years to break down in the landfill!
These diapers are different, made out of eco-friendly, bio-based, and plant-based materials from renewable resources. Each diaper has a highly absorbent core made from 100% FSC certified wood pulp and tabs to keep placement secure. In addition, each layer comprises breathable, naturally biodegradable materials that minimize the risk of irritation and diaper rash, so you do not have to worry about your little one.
From swaddling to stroller blankets to nap time, every baby needs and loves having a go-everywhere blankie. Under the Nile's Organic Cotton Receiving Blanket is perfect for anything and everything, made from 100% organic Egyptian cotton sustainably cultivated from a fair-trade farm. Plus, it contains no BPA, flame retardants, fragrance, PVC, or lead; therefore, you can rest easy knowing the baby is sleeping safe and sound.
Healthy for the baby and the planet, this Ergonomic Natural Rubber Pacifier combines eco-friendly materials with expert knowledge and design. Your baby will love this pacifier. Made from non-toxic natural rubber, BPA and phthalate-free, this pacifier features a one-piece design. This allows for optimal hygiene as there are no joints, slits, or corners for bacteria to collect. In addition, the shape allows for the natural development of the palate and jaw and is flexible to bring relief to the baby's sore gums. Finally, there are small ventilation holes that allow circulation of the air for comfort and an ergonomic butterfly flange shape that adapts to the face; this pacifier uses expert design for full functionality.
These products are carefully selected to provide you with the best choice for your baby and the environment as well. We want to teach them from the first day that being eco-friendly is very important and it is a lifestyle which can be led without any complications.
