Use all natural bedding; wool and organic cotton - natural bedding is not made from synthetics that can "off gas" noxious chemical and wool is a natural fire retardant.

Dress baby in soft organic cotton - cotton made without chemidal pesticides so it's healthier for baby and the planet.

Use non-toxic paints and cleaning products in the nursery – decorate and maintain your nursery the non chemical way for baby’s sensitive system.

Purchase organic baby food - baby food made from all natural ingredients without using pesticides or food additives.
