The best environmentally-friendly baby products - nappies, biodegradable wipes, bottles and babygros

Environmentally friendly

What with all the nappies, wipes and clothes you get through, having a baby can take its toll on the planet. It doesn’t have to be this way: from biodegradable nappies and washable wipes to clothes made from organic cotton, bringing up your baby the environmentally-friendly way really isn’t very difficult.  

Naty Nappies




Naty Nappies

If you are going to use a disposable nappy, the most environmentally-friendly option is from Naty. They use wood pulp from responsibly harvested from Scandinavian forests as the main absorbent and are fully biodegradable. Plus, there are no nasty chemicals or perfumes to irritate your baby’s sensitive skin.

Sophie The Giraffe Teether

£11.99 - RRP: £14.99



Sophie the Giraffe

It’s probably one of the most popular baby toys on the market and the good news is that it’s also one of the most environmentally friendly. Made from 100% natural rubber sourced from carefully-managed farms in Malaysia, Sophie is fully biodegradable and a green alternative to plastic teethers.

Beaming Baby Biodegradable Wipes

It’s quite frightening how many wipes you get through trying to clean those little bottoms, faces and hands so do something good for the planet and invest in ones that are biodegradable. Beaming Baby’s wipes are made from organic plant ingredients and are free from parabens, alcohol and chlorine so they’re better for your baby too.

Klean Kanteen Food Container

Klean Kanteen
These food containers are doubly good for the environment. Not only do they stop you wasting food, but they’re also made of stainless steel and recycled cardboard to boost your green credentials.

You don’t have to sacrifice your baby’s love of dummies if you want to go green. Hevea Planet’s pacifiers are made from 100% natural rubber latex and are free from PVC, BPA and artificial colours. As well as being soft and gentle on your little one’s face, these dummies have uniquely designed ventilation holes to prevent a vacuum around the mouth.

Naty Disposable Nappy Bags

£5.97 - RRP: £7.20


Naty Disposable

Being green doesn’t need to be a hassle. These disposable nappy bags are just as effective as their plastic counterparts but, because they’re made from natural cornstarch, they’re also fully compostable.
