If you’re preparing for a baby, or if you have a kid and want to start them on an eco-friendly lifestyle early on, one of the places where you can start is in their room. It’s important to design their space or buy pieces that not only help save mother earth but are also safe for them. Just take it from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are expecting their baby soon. Obviously, they want the best for their little one, and that means a completely eco-friendly nursery—from the organic furnishings down to the vegan paint they will use.
If you’re planning the same royal treatment for your kid, here are some items you can check out.
