How to Go Green in Your Baby's Nursery

Melissa Moog

Please choose organic sheets and covers. Cotton sheets and duvet covers that are grown with pesticides are toxic to the skin and even if you wash them several times they've already polluted the land.

Tip 5 - Toys
Please avoid plastic toys they do leach and they will be in your kid's mouth in no time. Natural materials create negative ions that help babies relax. Toys should also be selected that way. Wooden blocks are far better to develop creativity than things that are made of plastic and make loud sounds.

Tip 6 - A secret to create a relaxed room
No TV screens on kids rooms, mp3 or audio ok. Have a black out curtain to create complete darkness Plastic items create so much stress avoid them if you can.

Well the intention is to help, not to overwhelm you with lots of info but I really think our kids deserve environments that support their health and well being and green alternatives already have that.

NOTE: Check out another great article from The Cradle on creating an Eco-Friendly Nursery.
