By Kim Proulx
The "green" in this title is not referring to a color; it's referring to a way of life. You've probably heard of the terms eco-friendly, natural, earth-friendly and organic. Well, the idea of surrounding your baby with these types of products is getting really popular these days. This guide will help you find some eco-friendly products on our site that you can use to create an earth-friendly and baby-safe nursery.
All of our baby furniture is baby-safe, but there are a few brands that go even further than just meeting today's US safety standards. These brands use eco-friendly materials and manufacturing practices that are over-the-top earth friendly. If you're looking for truly "green" baby furniture then the following five brands have what you need: Argington, Oeuf, Stokke, Kid's Collection and qCollection Junior.
