Make it last
Choose pieces that will grow with your baby. This will save you money in the long run and it helps reduce waste. Try getting a crib with a conversion kit that can transition your crib to a toddler or day bed. This will also help ease transitioning from crib to a big kid bed much easier on your child and you. Getting a drawing table with extendable legs so that it (literally) grows with your child, such as Oeuf's Brooklyn Desk, is another money saving and green furniture hack.
Check for DetailsWhen shopping for organic or eco-friendly products always check the details. A low or no-volatile organic compound (VOC) painted products means that there are no harmful fumes that is linked to respiratory illness that could effect your child. Look for rugs that are made with non-toxic or polluting dyes. A celebrity favorite are the Lorena Canals Washable Rugs. They're easy to clean (just toss them in the wash), light weight (double as a playmat), and are eco-friendly!
There's always so much excitement when creating your child's first room. Designing an eco-friendly nursery helps keep our planet green and creates a safe environment for baby. Go green, go eco-chic baby!
