By using eco-friendly baby products and organic baby accessories, you are taking a positive step towards keeping our environment clean. Also, using earth-friendly baby products is very important for your baby's health. In light of global warming, there needs to be drastic measures taken worldwide to curb the effects of this phenomenon.

Earth changes such as melting polar ice caps, climate changes, and many other concerns that we face, affects each and every one of us on this planet. Every bit of effort is vitally important in saving our world and our children's future. Let us take a look at some great ways to help both your baby and mother earth.

Natural Organic and biodegradable diapers

Millions of diapers, both disposable and cloth, continue to fill up landfills every year. Yet, many of these diapers are made from plastic, chlorinated materials and other undesirable compounds. The plastic is not biodegradable and chlorinated materials pose a serious threat to our waters. Other undesirable compounds can also cause health problems to children.

By using 100% natural, organic, non-chlorinated cloth diapers, you will be helping both your child and the environment. You can find them made from a variety of fabric such as cotton, wool, and hemp suitable for baby and the earth. Use natural cloth wipes instead of disposable wipes. Disposable wipes contain chemical ingredients that can be harmful to babies sensitive skin. These wipes may also contain fibers that are also not biodegradable.

Convenience can be a huge factor for busy lifestyles of families with young children wearing diapers. So, it is to no amazement that millions of disposable diapers are sold every year. These types of diapers do not meet the criteria of concern for baby and the planet. Though, there seems to be a company out of Oregon (gdiapers.com) that has met all the requirements for safe, biodegradable and convenience through a flushable product. Could this be true?

Baby bottles

The presence of Bisphenol-A (BPA) in plastic bottles is a very serious concern especially in baby bottles. Tests have shown that BPA leachesthrough the repeated use of bottles containing the chemical. BPA is known to cause health problems in animals and considered to be harmful to humans and the environment. Some plastic bottles leach can leach adipates and phthalates that are linked to reproductive problems and liver cancers in mice.

Look into using different bottles such as glass or #5 plastic bottles. Plastic bottles made of #5 are the most recyclable and have not yet been found to leach BPA. To prevent the presence of bacteria and injury you will want to periodically examine the bottles for scratches, chips and cracks. A safe choice for nipples would be silicone. Make sure they meet the highest standard. Also, look into aluminum and stainless steel water bottles which can also be recycled after repeated use.

Laundry Soap

When it comes to washing baby clothing and diapers, use laundry soap that is environmentally responsible. These soaps are 100% natural, plant-based and biodegradable. They are non-toxic, chlorine free, enzyme free, GM free, dye-free, hypo-allergenic and petroleum free. Clearly, they are the safest for your baby.

Natural organic clothing

Purchase baby clothes made from 100% certified organic cotton or 100% organic wool. They both are pesticide and chemical-free and are not treated with toxic dyes and formaldehyde before the finishing of the garment, all of which can contaminate our land, air and water. By dressing your baby in organic clothing, they will not be exposed to these dangerous agents and at the same time you will helping to support organic farming

Due diligence

There are many more baby products and baby accessories that are natural, organic and safe for your child. Keep in mind, due diligence is of the upmost importance in your search of these wonderful products. Not all products are 100% certified organic and they may contain the harmful elements to both your baby and the environment. May your journey be a contribution to helping our planet.
