From wiping baby bums to playground dirt off lil one's hands and cleaning lunch crumbs off wee faces — the baby wipe has become a universal cleanser in many homes. Traditional wipes are sturdy, soft and get the job done, but thinking about how many end up in the garbage tends to push many mamas toward ecological options.
Elements Naturals has an earth-friendly version that is compostable and still manages to withstand the rigor used to tidy up tots. Made from Ingo fibers, the world's first man-made fiber from annually renewable resources, the wipes are free from chemical additives or surface treatments and require 68 percent less fossil fuel resources. Nobody ever said going green is cheap and these cost $6 a pack so you might want to use these judiciously, but that too will cut back on waste.
