Best Eco Friendly Toddler Products

Safe, Non-Toxic, & Healthy Toddler Products

As parents who are eco-friendly, it can feel like an uphill battle trying to get everything your little ones need to make parenting a little easier, while also minimizing the amount of waste we create and the amount of non-natural products we use.

Being a mom focused on creating minimal waste and providing my daughter with a non-toxic environment, I wanted to share tips and products I use so you don’t have to spend hours researching all the different options as I did!

Bamboo Dishware

I knew from the start I wanted to limit our use of plastic because it’s bad for the environment and leaches toxic chemicals over time (even BPA free), so also bad for our babies!

I know what I DIDN’T want to use but had no idea what could be a kid-friendly alternative. After lots of research I decided bamboo was the best option! Not only is bamboo sustainable, but it’s also a natural, non-toxic material.

On The Go


Not only is it more eco-friendly to avoid plastic and electronic toys, but it’s also actually better for your little one’s development! (Check out Growing A Creative Child for more information).

These are my toddler’s favorite simple and eco-friendly toys. These toys are also great because your little one won’t grow out of them quickly!

Ok, so this is the one plastic toy I will suggest because my daughter is obsessed with the song “Wheels On The Bus” and this company is great!

Their products are made in the USA from 100% recycled plastic milk containers that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It’s also great to have some toys with wheels to help children explore cause and effect.

Potty Time!

We love cloth diapering and use them most of the time. They’re great because nothing goes to the landfill and no harsh chemicals on my little.

However, I know it’s not for everyone, so bamboo disposable diapers are a great second option and we’ve used these a lot as a backup option, especially when traveling! 

For the little ones who are ready to start potty training, we found this awesome BPA free potty. Our little one loves it and it’s super easy to clean.

I hope you find these products are helpful in your search for being an eco-friendly parent!

  9. I’ve been cloth diapering part time since my first was 2 weeks old… I’m SO glad we made that decision!

Thanks for sharing!
