As a parent, your greatest concern is your child’s safety. Many transform their homes into a baby-proof zone with stair gates and rubber bumpers while unaware that they are neglecting the most important part of creating a safe environment for an infant: a non-toxic nursery. In this article, we will guide you through the process of creating a space, free of chemicals, to ensure your little ones remain happy and healthy.
When picking out furniture, make sure to opt for solid wood. Alternatives like composite board, particle board and MDF use formaldehyde, veneers and toxic glue that release nasty chemicals which do not belong in a child’s room.
Non-VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) paint is also essential to making sure your painted furniture isn't releasing toxic fumes into the air your baby breathes.
Look out for products with a Greenguard certification as this is only given to manufacturers that meet the highest standards of indoor air quality.
Organic baby brand, The Little Green Sheep sell high quality organic mattresses for under £200. You can also purchase bedding from their gorgeous animal themed range. www.thelittlegreensheep.co.uk
Our own decals are perfect for a toxic free nursery as they’re made from a special adhesive fabric that’s free from PVC, phthalates and other toxins. They can also be removed and reapplied over and over without losing stickiness or leaving residue on walls.
