Today is Earth Day and to help support this special day we want to talk about something that we are very passionate about. It is well known that we live in a disposable society, the rise in fast fashion and this growing need for the ‘newest’ and ‘best’ products means people are buying and throwing away more to keep up with trends. This trend of shopping is damaging the planet and your bank balance! This Earth Day we want to help change the way society shops.
From the very beginning Natural Baby Shower has believed if you buy well you will only have to buy once. We go on the hunt for the most sustainable and durable baby and family products on the planet so you don’t have to.
Investing in quality and durable goods is the most sustainable way to shop. If you buy well in the first place you can buy products that will last you a lifetime. Well produced products made from high quality materials will last for years, making it possible to be passed along to siblings and friends. It becomes a cherished piece of your little one’s childhood that you can pass on, instead of it ending up in landfill six weeks after purchase.
To help reduce waste and stick to the buy well, buy once mantra it is important to buy products that last. For example, clothes that are made from organic cotton and high quality materials, or hardware that can adapt and grow with your little one instead of having 1 single use.
We can’t wait to show you our top products and brands that support the Natural Baby Shower’s buy well buy once ethos. Help us make the planet that little greener this Earth Day.
