Becoming a parent for the first time is one of the most magical experiences a person can have. Bringing your little bundle of joy home from, watching it yawn, kick, smile and explore the world through tiny innocent eyes – there’s nothing like it.

Tips for Eco-Friendly Parenting 

1. Try to make your own homemade baby food wherever possible – this is a great way to use up leftover food waste, limit the number of chemicals your baby consumes and help your baby enjoy organic food from an early age. 

2. Opt for the charity shop when it comes to buying new maternity clothes, baby clothes and toys. They can often have a big selection of goods and are a great alternative to the fast fashion stores.

3. Hand make your children’s toys! From knitted bears to felt animals, to DIY mobiles and hand painted blocks, there are lots of craft tutorials to help your children enjoy homemade, plastic-free play.  

4. Swap out the disposable diapers for reusable or cloth nappies. Disposable nappies are non-biodegradable and non-compostable, contributing to harmful landfill sites and waste disposal sites. 

5. Shop for babygrows of organic cotton, hemp, bamboo or recycled material. Try to avoid fast fashion materials, as these can often be cheaply made with a high carbon footprint. 

6. Try out a glass baby bottle and a natural rubber dummy to avoid using plastic. Not only will these last longer, they’re also great eco-friendly alternatives!
