When setting up a nursery for the ideal health of your baby, you may ask “where do you even start”?! We created this ‘starter pack’ for you to answer that question!

Here are our top 3 eco-friendly nursery furniture swaps:

1.) A crib mattress – a critical item for an infant’s mental and physical development and safety. Mattresses, even crib mattresses are allowed to contain toxic foam, pesticides, highly allergic latex , are not waterproof and not breathable. Make sure to get a certified organic cotton, waterproof, non latex, breathable mattress for your baby.

2.) Sheets – Take Organic printed crib sheets. The sheet itself might be certified organic, but the printed dye on the sheet could be loaded with chemicals. Stay away.

3.) The Crib – Choose a crib made without fake wood, paints, stains, or glues that contain toxic chemicals. A lot of cribs are loaded with them. Look for one that’s Greenguard Gold Certification.

Go with the big 3 and you’re on your way to setting up a safe, happy and healthy baby nursery.


A brief summary of the top 3 eco-friendly nursery furniture swaps:

  • Organic crib sheets can still be filled with dangerous chemicals.
  • Cribs made with fake wood are highly toxic. Cribs made with regular paint are dangerous for your baby.
