Green Design Site for Babies and Their Parents
Inhabitat is a must-read architecture and design site packed with information about new housing, architecture, transportation and design products. What happens when its editor-in-chief gets pregnant...Inhabitots is born. It's a new website with a baby and parenting focus; its motto: “Sustainable design for the next generation“. They say that "becoming a parent does not constitute having to sacrifice style" which is a bit optimistic (try that line out after a sleepless night with a cranky baby) but their postings so far have some pretty cool stuff.
We love the Eames rocking chair, which some TreeHugger babies were lulled to sleep in during its first time 'round. It looks great, is quite comfortable, and is a timeless addition to any bedroom. Igooplay does a more modern rocking chair which is ergonomic and fluid looking in pressed wood. These wooden birds (pictured) are Danish, from the '50's and are made of locally-sourced oak. There are some wooden, solar-powered helicopters that store up energy as they sit on the windowsill and will delight any little boy. Of course there are the obligatory adorable floppy toys made out of recycled sweaters and lost socks. Clothing includes tee-shirts for young revolutionaries with slogans such as "this shirt saved a life" and "I'll change the world some day". All in all, a welcome addition to the wonderful world of green baby wares on the net. :: InhabitotsMore on Green Baby Websites and Resources:: How to Green Your Baby:: Etsy Debuts Handmade Kids Series:: Baby Clothes
