I always have thought of myself as environmentally conscious. I shut off the lights when I leave the room, unplug items which don't need to always be plugged in, drive green(er) cars (we even own a hybrid), recycle everything (even Styrofoam), turn off the water when I brush my teeth, buy organic when I can, steer clear of animal tested products, use green cleaning products, etc. In fact, the environment is one of the biggest things I care about when voting on issues, donating money, etc. It is one of my passions (a long with animal rights).
So when thinking about all of the items I will be registering for our little baby girl I figured the going green should not stop. I know that organic/green items are more expensive, but who cares? We all spend loads of money on clothes and entertainment, what about the earth?
Here are a couple of items I plan on registering for. Yes, I even plan on using cloth diapers. They have come along way since I was a baby. Now they have cute little covers and will save me money in the long run.
This diaper bag is made out of recyled bottles (which take years to breakdown in a landfill). It is super cute.
See! Cute stuff! Green things are not ugly! They are cute. This is only a sampling of the organic/green things I have come across so far. I am sure I will find some more things. In the meantime I will continue my quest to add in more green products into my life (energy efficient lightbulbs, green hair and face products, etc.)
