Pink, Blue... and Green: Keeping Your New Baby Earth-Friendly

6 of 7

Non-Toxic Toys

Recent toy recalls only underscore the need to surround your baby with safe, non-toxic products. It's hard to know what materials have gone into the construction of mass-produced, imported toys. Also, consider the energy it takes not just to manufacture these products in huge quantities, but to transport them across the globe. Try to find toys made locally from all-natural materials. Chances are there are local artisans who are making high-quality products your kids will love.
