Organic Baby Shower

I went to another baby shower this weekend which was unusual in that the mommy-to-be requested that guests purchase eco-friendly gifts. It was exciting to hear that new parents are starting to get involved in the green movement! Here are some ideas from her shower that may inspire you.

1) Ask for a diaper service. Today’s diaper service is not the service of yesteryears. Gone are those dangerous pins which have been replaced with velcro. Most importantly, think of all that disposable diaper waste! Check out the National Association of Diaper Services for more information.

2) Buy organic products. There are a lot of adorable and surprisingly affordable organic baby clothes and products such as blankets. I saw some at Target the other day.

3) Request that friends and family purchase new organic or used products. My friend received hundreds (literally) of clothes from her family who gave her a combination of new organic things and used baby clothes.

4) Wrap gifts in recyclable paper or out of old magazines and newspapers. What a great way to make use of those old magazine subscriptions collecting dust in your home!

The nice thing about doing this is that you can feel good about contributing to the planet as you bring your little one into this world.

    I’m looking for a baby shower invitation that not only is printed on recycled paper but will reflect the new parents desire to be eco-friendly somewhere in the invitation wording. Any help would be appreciated!!
