We all know climate change is a very real danger to our planet. We also know it’s largely man-made, and recent studies show that 71% of all greenhouse gas emissions since 1988 have come from corporations. Because of this, changing your habits in the name of saving our planet can feel fruitless as an individual, but if companies are the leading cause of climate change, we can help as individuals by spending our money on products from environmentally conscious companies and those that prioritize sustainability. Money talks, and even though we’re already starting to see the effects of climate change, there’s still time for humans to turn things around to ensure a better future for our kids, grandkids, and future generations. Products you buy for your little one is a good place to start.

Not only is the 100% Recycled Puppy Lovey from GUND super soft, cuddly, and adorable, but it’s also part of the company’s first (but certainly not last) sustainability-conscious collection. It’s sourced from 100% recycled materials, including pre-consumer recycled beads, fiber fill, thread, and more. If a puppy isn’t your style, this adorable, sustainable toy is available as a duck or a rabbit.

Esembly Cloth Diapers

If the thought of cloth diapers freaks you out, we get it, but hear us out. Esembly’s Cloth Diapers are the best option in terms of waste compared to traditional diapers (a single three-diaper Try-It Kit alone can keep more than 1,000 diapers out of the trash each year). Plus, they’re well-made with organic and upcycled ingredients and easy to wash. Not to mention, the waterproof outer pattern options are downright adorable.

Melissa & Doug Ice Cream Take Along Toy

What makes Melissa & Doug stand out as a company is that they always use high-quality materials to make their toys because they’re designed to last through multiple hand-me-downs. They have plenty of adorable products for babies, but we’re partial to the Ice Cream Take-Along Toy because it’s portable, encourages curiosity, and is full of sensory fun for babies from birth to 12 months old (and beyond). It vibrates, makes chiming sounds, has different textures to explore, and it’s battery- and screen-free, which is always a win.

Maybe not the most fun baby product to buy, but certainly still important is clothing hangers. You can make baby’s closet a little more eco-friendly by stocking up on ( r e )x Kids Hangers. They’re designed to fit clothing sized 6M to 6Y old and are made entirely from recycled plastic (plus, all of their packaging is also made from 100% recycled materials and is 100% biodegradable).
