I've been reading up on organics at the Organic Trade Association. There are so many benefits--including more fertile soil. It is no wonder more and more baby gear is available in green options.
You know I am a fan of swaddling blankets from Aden + Anais. They are the roomiest and extremely plush. I take one on every trip. They too have gone green with a certified organic, softly breathable Aden & Anais Organic Wrap to their line. '??For parents around the world, the birth of a precious new baby represents the hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow,'? says Aden + Anais co-founder Raegan Jones. '??We'??ve used naturally organic and low impact dyes that help parents create an eco-friendly environment to welcome their newborn without sacrificing style or comfort.'? Buy it on Amazon for $34.
What does it mean to be organic? Well I found out in order to be certified organic, crops must be grown on land free of prohibited substances for at least three years prior to harvest. This is the best of all worlds--incredible looking baby gear that is taking green business seriously.
