These days, Alyssa and Aidan are teaching me a thing or 2 about being a “greener citizen”! They are quite clued up on what is friendly to our environment and what is not – because this is how they are being taught at school!
But as a parent, creating a non-toxic environment to raise our kids is just as is important – but that doesn’t mean it’s going to happen overnight. It can be quite a lengthy and somewhat expensive process, but one that is worth every cent.
Last week I got to attend a very unique baby shower at the 12 Apostles Hotel, hosted by Faithful-to-Nature, who has made it their mission to gather the best in organic childcare across their website!
Faithful-to-Nature makes it easy for you to eradicate toxins from your home at your own pace and within your own budget. By making conscious choices that suit your lifestyle, and your pocket.
So at the Baby Shower, we got to chat with the company’s founder, Robyn Smith who shared a bit of history about the brand and what it stands for. It was amazing to hear just how much research and due-diligence is done on each product before it’s added to the Faithful-to-Nature platform. The website’s filters also give you the option of filtering according to your needs and what’s important to you.
The website’s filters also give you the option of filtering according to your needs and what’s important to you. For example, if you’re trying to encourage a plastic-free environment at home, then you can specifically select the “plastic-free” filter on the site to help you find the product you need.
Faithful-to-Nature also offers a gift registry service which you could set up for a birthday or baby shower! As part of the Faithful-to-Nature baby shower I attended, I got to create my own registry and experience using the service first hand!
I found the experience fun, informative and so easy to navigate. I absolutely love the idea of creating a “green” baby shower as its basically setting the foundation for raising a child in a more non-toxic environment.
Robyn is also a Mom and she shared with us, her top products she currently uses for her baby.
Here are a few that stood out:
Choosing natural bath and body products for you and baby is another great way to reduce the amount of harmful chemicals that you’re exposed to. Try the Pure Beginnings Soothing Baby Wash & Shampoo with Organic Baobab to wash your baby in natural goodness.
Ideal for baby skin care and massage, Badger Baby Oil is pure, healing and calming ultra-mild natural oil blend. Made with Calendula and Chamomile, which are calming for the mind as well as skin.
This bottle will safely take your baby from newborn, through toddlerhood and into school. Its innovative, clever design means that, with a simple change of mouthpiece or lid, it can transform from a milk feeding bottle, to a toddler sippy cup, and even a snack bottle. Made using only non-toxic stainless steel and silicone!
Smittens offer a gentle cleansing mitt just for babies! It’s called the Smitty, and the quality microfibre is made specifically to clean a child’s soft, tender skin without the need for soap or other chemicals. Warm water is all you need to carefully cleanse your baby’s delicate skin.
What I also love about the website, is that you can read the reviews of people who have used the product and their thoughts on it! This will help you decide if the product is the right one for you or your baby.
So if you’re an expecting Mom and want to create a green baby shower gift registry, this is the way to go! Click Here to create your registry.
