Diaper Bag Essentials: How to Pack Sustainably

We all understand the importance of caring for our planet and ensuring a cleaner environment for future generations. From acts like using a reusable water bottle to participating in beach cleanups, every effort counts toward preserving the earth. The decisions we make, such as opting for eco-friendly cleaning products or choosing a sustainable diaper bag all assist in lowering our waste. For example, the Boxy Backpack has a machine-washable reusable changing pad, and the Tempo Backpack includes two insulated bottle pockets (to hold your reusable water bottles).

Here's a guide to the top sustainable and organic items to include in your diaper bag:

  1. Wet Bag: Replace your plastic bag with a wet bag to hold your cloth diapers, dirty clothes, and wet swimsuits. The Wet Bag Duo in Checker Stitch allows you to keep the items you want separate from the rest of your belongings and keep your diaper bag dry. Why stress with the mess?
  2. Cloth Diapers: Diapers made from natural materials like bamboo or cotton are not only gentle on your baby's skin, but also reduce environmental waste relative to conventional disposable diapers.
  3. Reusable Lunch Box: The Tandem Bottle & Lunch Tote in Grey Matte Cable Stitch is spacious and accommodates three standard-sized bottles along with an ice pack. It serves as a convenient solution for parents on the go! And for those transitioning from the baby to toddler stage, it ensures that snacks remain fresh and accessible. Anything besides a Ziploc bag is always a better choice, and this one is just so stylish!
  4. Biodegradable Wipes: Made from plant-based materials, these wipes are free from toxic chemicals to keep your baby safe. Plus, they are easy to dispose of which reduces waste and keeps the environment clean…a no-brainer.
  5. Natural Diaper Cream: Choose a diaper cream that’s disposable and compatible with cloth diapers. Look for ingredients like calendula, coconut oil, or shea butter. They are not only good for your newborn's sensitive skin but also good for the planet.

If you include these eco-friendly essentials in your diaper bag, you're actively contributing to keeping our planet clean. Nothing is better than prioritizing the well-being of your little one and future generations.
