How to Go Green in Your Baby's Nursery

Melissa Moog

I liked the article below because of its valuable information about greening up baby's room that I had to reprint it for my readers. It was written by Alicia Silva who is a green architect that has taught a class on eco-friendly nursery design. I thought it gave easy tips for parents to consider when you're going green in baby's nursery. Remember it doesn't have to be all about buying an expensive "green" crib made out of sustainable material. There are many things you can do to decrease the toxins your newborn will be exposed to as Alicia mentions below.

Green Baby Nursery
(Reprinted from Seattlepi.com)

Welcoming a baby implies a great deal of change in our lifestyles. This is a great time to understand and go green. When we have kids it makes a lot more sense. I will be teaching a Green baby Nursery class at the Environmental home center, now Ecohause.

The following tips will help you to start with your baby project with well being in mind. After all green is the standard of giving the best to your loved ones.

Reasons why it's important:

  1. They are a lot more sensitive to the toxins


  2. Green is all about better living


  3. Babies produce three times more garbage than most grown ups


  4. Helps to protect the world they will be living in


  5. No, it is not more expensive


  6. You will be walking your talk

I just read an article where a person was creating the baby room and she did not know if the old carpet was better than the new one. Well, those are the things that you really want to know about when preparing the baby's room.
