Super-sustainable parenting


Are you keen to be a sustainable parent, but unsure of where to begin? Check out these options from this year Baby Show.

Prams made from old water bottles

Pram brand Joie have created the new Cycle Collection which uses fabric made from recycled water bottles. Joie take the discarded plastic debris that flows into the oceans each year and shreds it into flakes which are then melted down and spun into super soft thread which is then knitted into a high-quality durable fabric.

First carbon neutral soothers

MAM have launched their first carbon-neutral soother, Original Pure. The shield, button and steriliser box are made from bio-renewable material, offering a more sustainable soother for parents compared to current fossil-based soother plastics.

Swap, don’t dump

Instead of buying clothes as your little one gets bigger and bigger, take advantage of hire services such as OR Collective and Bundlee where you simply subscribe for your baby’s clothes and swap them as your child grows, ensuring they are used time and time again. and

Baby bowls made from bamboo

Eco Rascals give parents a sustainable choice of plates, bowls and cups made from bamboo, a natural material that is organic, recyclable and grown and harvested without the use of pesticides.

Stylish and eco-friendly nappy bags

KeriKit’s amber eco apple leather backpacks use up waste from the apple juice industry. Super stylish, Finnsøn is changing bags that use 100 percent recycled polyester.

Super skincare

Oh-Lief create handmade natural and organic skincare and sun-care products for babies that are both kind to delicate skin and the environment. Their products are free from any harsh chemicals, artificial fragrances, petroleum, parabens, artificial colour or nut oils and every purchase made contributes to the Greenpop organisation, where together they plant indigenous trees to help restore ecosystems.

Ethical babywear

Take advantage of slow fashion brands like Degiorgis Baby who create all their own products in-house using natural fabrics and materials. Even their buttons are made from natural materials such as wood, coconut and shells. They also design their products so that the clothes grow with babies, for example using tie straps or extra buttons on dungarees to make them adjustable. Any fabric scraps are used to create smaller products such as scratch mittens or hair accessories.
