Rockabye and Recycle

Think of all the plastic your kids' mouths have gnawed, sucked, bit, and chewed on today - Barbie's foot, a book, sippy cup lids and straws, nipples, pacifiers. It's very likely that chemicals from these products have leached out and have been ingested.
I am working on being more conscientious - finding, buying and giving products that cannot be potentially impregnated with toxins. I'm here to tell you, it's getting easier. Many companies, even Wal-Mart, are embracing environmental responsibility by introducing all natural products.
Take a look at Eco-Cradle, made entirely of cardboard from the Israeli-based company, Green Lullaby.
This environmentally conscious cradle meets all the required standards. It's protected by Green Lullaby's very own non-toxic 'green' fire retardant and meets the EU safety and performance standards for cribs and cradles. The best part is that no tools are required for assembly, plus it can be folded down and stored flat, making it convenient for traveling out of town to see Grammy.
So, for a truly unique shower gift, why not give parents-to-be something for baby that they can reuse or recycle. It's a small act that makes a big difference for our health and environment.
You can find the Eco-Cradle at Rose and Radish.
