As mentioned before, we try to be as green as possible and are trying to raise Bug to be aware of the impact that her choices have on the environment. For us it’s all about changing one product or habit at a time.
Here are some of our favourite “Bug approved” products at the moment (all of them are available at Faithful to Nature):
- Pura Stainless Steel Infant Bottles: I wish I had discovered these when we first started using bottles with Bug. They are made from stainless steel and medical grade silicone meaning that your little one is not exposed to toxins. They also grow as they grow – the same bottle can use a teat, sippy spout, straw or sport’s lid. So instead of having to buy new bottles as they grow, you simply replace the mouthpiece.
- Jack n Jill Toothbrushes: These super cute toothbrushes are made from non-GMO cornstarch and are fully compostable. Bug holds her easily and brushes her own teeth. They come with a variety of characters to choose from – our personal favourite is the bunny.
- Ecoffee Cup and Bamboo Straws: So this isn’t a typical baby product. Bug loves smoothies but they can get SO messy. I needed a way to give her smoothies with a straw in a way that she could still feed herself and not make a mess. This coffee cup is made a bamboo and corn starch blend, while the lid and grip are GMO-free silicone. We slip out the cap and slip her reusable bamboo straw into the space and ta-daa it makes the perfect baby friendly smoothie cup.
