Why might someone act in an eco-friendly manner? Well a couple of the main reasons are so that our environment becomes can become a healthier living place and so that the next generation is able to live healthier in a sustainable environment. If people do not start paying attention to the environment then the pleasures of clean air, water, food and recreation that we appreciate now will disappear for our children. They at least deserve to have what we have. What better way to ensure that the next generation has a healthy environment than to make sure that the children themselves are eco-friendly? Here are some tips on making your baby eco-friendly and fashionable at the same time.

Main Line Green Home located at the Berwyn Primary shops offers hemp and other organic clothing for children and babies as well as other eco-friendly baby products. Many of their products are made from recycled materials and are toxin free. In addition to their wonderful eco-friendly children’s clothing, Main Line Green Home also offers products for the adults in the family. They provide a great way to “help you embrace change while continuing your tradition of a gracious home.” Purchases made at Main Line Green Home not only help the environment but 10% of their sales go towards non-profit organizations in the Main Line area.

Keeping a baby’s head warm while staying eco-friendly can be difficult at times; but doing just that, as well as being fashionable, is what Knit-Heads has been able to bring to Philadelphia. Lolli Lolli on Walnut Street in Philadelphia has two styles of eco-friendly hats for the little ones. The hats are not only made from organic materials and all made in the United States, but their cute design will keep everyone swooning over your child’s eco-friendly style.

It is hard to know how much waste and toxins are produced through the manufacturing of some baby products. If those babies had a choice, they would surely want something that was not contributing to the destruction of the environment they will be living in. Luckily, it is easy to know when you are not hurting the environment. Summer Baby offers eco-friendly products for green-minded moms at many stores in the Philadelphia area including: Babies R Us, K-Mart, Wal-Mart, Target and many more. It can be rewarding to watch your baby while knowing they are sleeping in an organic four-piece crib, or in a soothing and environmentally friendly comfort bouncer.

It can certainly be difficult at times to know how to become eco-friendly, or to know what is harmful to the environment. That is why there are many stores letting people know that they offer clothing made from organic and recyclable materials.

Being eco-friendly is a lifestyle that one must just learn to adapt to; this is why there are also books available to teach us all about this adaptation. One of the most helpful books for becoming an eco-friendly family is the Mom’s Guide to Growing your Family Green by Terra Wellington.

It is possible to help save our environment; each of us must just look for the signs, learn what we can and act on that knowledge. Becoming eco-friendly does not just happen. Visit the Lifestyle Section of GREENandSAVE.com to find out where you can start.
