Planet-saving tips for an eco-friendly baby

Saving the planet doesn’t have to stop because you’ve had a baby. Yes, they’re a teeny bundle of mess-creating, gadget-needing joy. But we’ve got a list of simple eco-friendly baby tips, from eco toys to biodegradable nappies, to help you live a greener life

  • Choose eco toys made of wood, natural rubber or plant-based bioplastic.
  • Consider shopping for bamboo baby bowls, spoons, and cups. Eco-friendly and stylish.
  • Try swapping to biodegradable bin-bags and nappy bags.
  • Consider switching to eco-friendly nappies or biodegradable nappies.
  • Try cotton balls or washable flannels for changing time at home (it may be harder to avoid using wipes out and about, so biodegradable baby wipes will come in handy).
  • Have a go at mixing up your own cleaning products using things like vinegar and bicarb of soda.
  • Go for a stroll in your local park.
  • Take a trip to the farm—urban farms are great if you live in a city.
  • Spend time in your garden (if you’re lucky enough to have one!)
  • Try growing your own! Even a window box of tomatoes is a great start.
  • Shop from your local butcher, baker, greengrocer, and farmers’ market if possible.
  • Check out your local charity shops. They’re a treasure trove of everything from clothes to books and furniture.
  • Upcycling can be a fun family project.
  • Avoid too much screen time, particularly towards the end of the day.
  • Adjust your lighting according to the time of day.
  • Aim for bright, open curtains and blinds in the daytime, and keep things dim at night—it can help get baby into a good sleep routine.
