You probably think this is an oxymoron! Having no or less waste with a houseful of diapers, clothes, wipes and toys may seem impossible, but there are some practical alternatives to raising a “zero-waste baby.”

Here are just a couple of ideas from Katherine Martinko, mother of three:

  • Cloth diapers
  • Washcloths not wipes
  • Fewer skin-care products
  • Used/re-purposed clothing
  • Home-made baby food
  • Fewer toys
  • Minimal fancy gadgets and toys

Read more tips and find out why these are better alternatives. And make sure you purchase non-toxic products too! (Read here why eliminating a baby’s exposure to harmful chemicals is so very important.)

“A truly green baby, by contrast, is the one whose lifestyle is least consumerist and most minimalist, whose parents don’t go out and stock up on a mountain of unnecessary new items in order to get it through the first year of life.”
