We all try and do our part to help the planet, after all we want our children to have the best environment to grow up in. The good news is there are loads of eco-friendly baby brands popping up, as well as huge supermarkets such as Asda and Aldi changing their products, understanding parents are looking for less plastic, less wastage and more sustainable options.
From sustainable baby clothes, to plastic-free alternatives for weaning, to embracing second-hand over new, here are 10 of our favourite eco-friendly brands for babies and toddlers.

Casey & Cole
Creators Emma and Carly are mums themselves, with 5 children between them, ranging in age from 10 months to 9 years. They found that it was impossible to find stylish and practical tableware/accessories that were also safe and sustainable. So they set up their own brand! All their weaning sets are made from food-grade silicone, plus they’re dishwasher safe for easy cleaning, 100% free from BPA, PVC and phthalates, microwave safe and stain resistant! Hooray!

Bamboo is a brilliant sustainable product that can do so much more than you may think. The Bamboo Baby Company create gorgeously soft towels, bedding, wraps and blankets perfect for baby’s sensitive skin.
