Eco-Friendly Baby Registry

If you’re someone who shops with sustainability in mind and values products made from natural, eco-friendly or organic materials, or if you prioritize GREENGUARD Gold Certified products in your home, you’ll likely want to continue that trend after you become a parent. Luckily, the baby market is on your side—there are so many (amazing) green baby items to choose from when you’re building your registry. Plus, it enables you build your registry on a budget and pull off somewhat of a minimalist mentality when it comes to all the baby stuff you need.

From glass bottles and cloth diapers to plant-based skincare products and wooden toys, this sample registry features our favorite eco-friendly baby gear choices. (Need help narrowing down what else to put on your registry? The Babylist baby registry checklist lets you see what are must-have baby products and what’s nice to have in a variety of baby gear categories.)

Nursery & Decor

Oeuf uses sustainable materials in all of its furniture and values fair trade labor. Their sophisticated, modern aesthetic doesn’t hurt either, and this beautiful wooden crib, available in three finishes, complements any nursery or sleep space. It’s GREENGUARD Gold Certified and sustainably produced in Europe.

Oeuf Sparrow Crib


Organic and GREENGUARD Gold Certified, this mattress is also lightweight, making changing the crib sheet a little easier on your back. If you’re looking for a dual firmness model (extra firm on one side for the baby days and a bit softer on the other once toddlerhood arrives), check out the Organic Dual Firmness model.

Yup, you can toss this rug right into the wash. (And it looks just as good as when you threw it in—just cleaner!) It’s the perfect sustainable option for managing spills, spit-up and more, and it’s made from 100% cotton and all-natural dyes.

Clek car seats are more than just sleek and beautiful.

The Liing is comfortable, convenient and extremely safe. For a more affordable option, check out Chicco’s KeyFit 30 ClearTex Infant Car Seat.

Cloth diapers sound intimidating, but we promise these are as user-friendly as they come. Pro tip: some parents note that these diapers work better for larger babies, so if you think little one is going to be on the slimmer side, add some bumGenius Elementals to your registry too.
