I really love how much attention sustainability has been getting recently. This planet is our home and it’s our responsibility to take care of it. One of the ways we can do that is by shopping sustainably. Did you know there are a ton of great sustainable baby brands? So if you’re interested in looking into more sustainable options when it comes to finding products for your babies, you are in luck these days!
What Does Being Sustainable Mean?
When a brand says they are sustainable it means a few different things. The term would be referring to local sourcing, full transparency in regards to supply chain, safe working conditions and fair pay. Of course, the most obvious thing a sustainable brand does is use recycled fabrics, natural dyes, natural fabrics, etc. But people often forget about the rest of the production process and all of that is included, as well. You can’t be half sustainable, you have to be in every way in order to truly be labeled as such. These are brands that are dedicated to helping leave the Earth in a better position than it was when they arrived. It’s a mission.
Sustainable Baby Brands To Shop
Mon Coeur is a kids clothing company that was created by a mom who wanted her baby’s clothes to be made in a way that cared for the planet. It was founded on taking care of both the environment and respecting the people on it. You can feel really good about your children wearing pieces from this brand for so many reasons, all being the fact that this company is doing some good in the world.

Hanna Andersson is a company that makes children’s clothing (also some really fun matching pieces for parents) and are committed to sustainability. They use fair trade practices, organic and harm-free materials. What’s super cute is they like to call their clothes “hanna me-downs” because they can be passed down to your other family members or donated to be enjoyed by others, once your child outgrows them.

They have a whole baby line that features organic cotton clothing, bedding, sustainable toys and bath products. Literally everything under the sun!

Kyte is a company that was created originally to help with the founders’ daughter’s eczema. Their baby clothes are made out of bamboo which is hypoallergenic, cooler than cotton and requires less water to grow. This is a family owned and operated company that focuses on great sourcing and safe and fair labor. All around a fantastic sustainable option!

If you haven’t heard of Water Wipes, let me tell you, they are a game-changer for diaper changes or anything, really! This product is a wipe that is made of 99% water and 1% fruit extract, so there’s no harsh perfumes or scents, soaps, etc. in the product. Babies get diaper rashes, but these are gentle on them! You can also use them to wipe their hands or mouth after eating. They also have a line for adults.
Ergobaby is known for having some of the very best baby carriers around! It makes me so much happier to know that they are sustainable, I had no idea I could love them more! Everlove by Ergobaby is a part of the company that explains their sustainability promise. They build their carriers to last a long time and will buy back carriers in good condition to give to families that need them. This is because they are trying to not contribute to landfills and reuse products! Another huge thing is that they are working to reduce CO2 emissions, which is always nice to hear.
