Environmentally conscious parents want to ensure their baby’s clothing is sustainably made and ethically sourced. Boody is a sustainable clothing company that offers clothing for women, men and children. The brand tries to mitigate waste through several production processes.
It relies on bamboo for most of its products, which is a much more sustainable option than other clothing materials. Additionally, Boody’s packaging is made with recycled, post-consumer waste by FSC-certified suppliers. These suppliers prioritize the preservation of natural ecosystems and the prevention of deforestation. The company’s website claims it wants to help people build a “lean, green wardrobe.”
Babysoy’s official website states that its sustainable, comfy clothing products are made with soy protein fiber from sustainable, renewable resources. The company is featured in People magazine, Instyle, Pregnancy & Newborn and even won a Mom’s Choice Award.
One thing to note about Babysoy is that the brand offers most of the basic clothing items babies need, as well as some other cool collections. For example, Babysoy’s Jane Goodall Collection, Janey Baby, collects funds to donate to the Jane Goodall Institute. So far, it’s contributed more than $100,000 to the institute.
7. Earth Mama
Earth Mama is a beauty brand focusing on three core principles: transparency, integrity and sustainability. Based on Earth Mama’s website, the company’s products are cruelty-free, plastic-neutral, organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. The brand is also a proud partner of Campaign for Safe Cosmetics (CSC), a program led by the Breast Cancer Prevention Partners (BCPP).
Earth Mama’s products are made with certified organic ingredients. These ingredients improve water quality, reduce carbon emissions and minimize exposure to pesticides, GMOs and synthetic fertilizers.
8. Eco by Naty
Eco by Naty is one of the eco-friendly baby brands primarily selling eco-friendly diapers and other essential baby products. One of the brand’s most popular products is its natural, eco-friendly baby wipes. Unfortunately, most wet wipes are not biodegradable, contributing to massive amounts of waste in landfills or the environment.
In addition, Eco by Naty’s wipes — like their diapers — are entirely plant-based. Each wipe is environmentally friendly, soft and hypoallergenic to accommodate your baby’s sensitive skin. If you purchase wipes from Eco by Naty, they’ll break down in 12 weeks, and you can even use them for composting if you’d like.
9. Finn & Emma
Looking for sustainable toy brands? Finn & Emma is your best bet. The brand sells toys by category or material. For example, you can buy wood, knit or macrame baby toys, or explore categories such as teethers, scrunch toys, pacifier holders or even toys for your baby’s stroller!
It’s also worth mentioning that Finn & Emma’s toys are made with 100% organic cotton, eco-friendly dyes and all-natural wood and the brand’s garments and accessories are produced in fair trade working environments.
Parents know that the cosmetic products they use for their babies must be safe yet effective. If you’re looking for a safe skincare brand for your baby, try out Pipette. The brand launched in 2019 and uses 100% clean, gentle and nontoxic ingredients for its products.
One interesting product from Pipette is Squalane. The expert scientists at Pipette created this moisturizer, which mimics the natural moisturizing substance — called squalene — in a baby’s skin.
