Moms are no strangers to the terms ‘organic’ and ‘eco-friendly’. And even those who never before identified as die-hard environmentalists, will suddenly check nutrition labels and buy only wooden toys in an effort to keep both our kids and the planet Earth – safe. This month, in honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, BeautyNewsNYC’s Metro Mama has got you and your Metro Babies covered with the best products friendly enough for baby and Earth.
Buggy Stroller Cleaning Kit
BuggyLOVE is the brand new and only organic cleaning kit out to provide parents with a product to pamper their newest little ones and their much-used thrones on-the-go. Create a pampered, not to mention clean atmosphere while ensuring the longevity of your baby’s most important form of city-transportation by using BuggyLOVE’s 4 piece cleaning kit.
Hevea Baby USA
Your yellow rubber ducky is keeping a dirty little secret. We all know how many bath toys Mom has had to toss because of that nasty black fluid hiding inside; luckily, Hevea, is here to help with their ‘no-hole for water to get through’ design! With the impressive success of Hevea’s all natural pacifiers and teethers – this green brand now makes Hevea Bath Toys, made from 100% natural rubber, free of PVC, BPA, phthalates and dyes. Support this sustainable baby business and help make our planet a better place for our children.
Are all organic products created equal? Nope. Just take a closer look at certain labels and you’ll find artificial ingredients and toxic chemicals hiding in the fine print. But Dolphin Organics has nothing to hide. Their label makes it plain to see that their ingredients are all 100% natural and organic. There’s nothing man-made or artificial in any of their products, made especially for babies and young children. The fragrance free, hypoallergenic line is vegan and currently includes baby shampoo, baby lotion, bubble bath and hair conditioner.

Ava Anderson Non Toxic was started three years ago by Ava at the age of 15 when she realized that there were few if any beauty products made without toxic chemicals. So, when she created her line of skin, body, face and sun products, she made sure they were one of the safest products on the market for humans and the environment. She continues her mission with the recent launch of avaSCENT, avaHOME and Metro Mama’s favorite: avaBABY.
NuturMe is the first and only certified-organic, all-natural, gluten-free baby food made from nutrient-rich, quick-dried fruits and vegetables. By quick-drying, rather than cooking, its ingredients, NurturMe preserves the vital nutrients and phytochemicals found in fruits and vegetables, making it one of the most natural and nutritious baby foods available. Their eco-and travel-friendly packets are actually made from wind energy. Check out their veggie packed kid-approved recipes like sweet potato pancakes and plump peas froggy pasta.
Happy Earth Day 2012!
