American Baby’s Baby Booty: $100 Spree at AbesMarket.com!

They've got a beautiful online baby registry!

You don’t have to be a “green” mommy to love eco-friendly baby products. Sometimes the earth-friendly stuff is just ridiculously adorable. That’s how we found AbesMarket.com some years ago. We were looking for something new and different for a nursery-storage story in the magazine, and found the $70, completely recyclable, no-screws-necessary¬†Beehive Bookcase. And we were hooked!

We’ve since gone back to them a bunch of times. We showed one of their $68¬†organic baby blankets in a layette story, for instance. And here I’ll give up one of my editor’s secrets, which is that I sometimes refer to them as a sort of cross-check. Lots of companies promise that they are eco-friendly, but because I know Abe’s Market does a serious amount of research before taking on a product line, I’ll sometimes just peek and see if a product that says it’s green is on their Web site. (I do these kinds of cross-checks with Whole Foods too, but they’re tougher, because you can’t shop Whole Foods online!)

Also, if you just like to read about where your baby products come from, you’ll like the company overviews. Check out this one about Green Sprouts. You can learn what they make, where, and with what materials! If you’re not careful, you’ll turn into a product geek like me.

I’m finally working around to their new news: AbesMarket.com launched a baby registry! It’s presented in a gorgeous online magazine format and is a pleasure to browse through.

To help them celebrate and spread the word to moms and moms-to-be, we’re giving away a $100 giftcard to AbesMarket.com. Just leave a comment here (you can comment up to once a day) and let us know what your favorite eco-friendly baby product is. You can comment through Wednesday May 9th; on the 10th, we’ll randomly chose one winner. See the complete rules here. Goody luck!

What would you buy with $100 at their site?

    I love organic baby lotions like the Babo Calming set. I also enjoy organic baby food and I even buy organic pasta for myself. Since Summer is approaching, I would love to be able to stock up on some Natural sunscreen for my son!

    Assuredly, my favorite eco-friendly baby item is the diaper. My inserts come in cloth AND disposable (flushable). It makes me feel better financially and how I am helping to leave a place to play for my child.
