From diapers to toys to cribs, you can find an organic version of almost anything these days. Eco-conscious parents may panic a little about making the best picks for all the gear their new baby requires, as well as how quickly babies grow out of things that were crucial mere weeks or months before.
However, new parents can tamp down some of that angst by choosing products made of sustainable or recycled materials, or by purchasing products that are reusable rather than disposable. Basically, everything you buy should last for your baby as long as possible and make the least environmental impact – oh yeah, and the products should be affordable, simple to use, and, if at all possible, easy on the eyes, too.
With all these factors in mind, here are some of our favorite environmentally conscious products for you to consider.

Safety 1st Riva 6-in-1 Flex Modular Travel System
Strollers made entirely or largely from recycled materials have been around for a while, but with price tags that range around the $500 to $800 mark, they're out of reach for most parents. Available online for $300, Safety 1st's Riva, the first stroller made in America with recycled plastics, including the company's own recycled car seats, is much more affordable. For that price, you get the Riva stroller and the onBoard 35 FLX Infant Car Seat, which will keep your baby on the move for years to come.

Babyletto Gelato 4-in-1 Convertible Crib
One of the best ways to keep from cycling through products as your baby grows is to look for items that last through many stages of development. Cribs often come in 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 styles that convert to different types of sleeping environments for growing kids, so they're a perfect place to put this commitment into practice.
Made of sustainable New Zealand pine with a non-toxic finish, the gorgeous Babyletto Gelato crib starts out eco-friendly. And because it is convertible to a toddler bed with a rail, a daybed, and a full-size bed with a headboard, it'll last your family for years and years, as needed. All that for just $300? Yes, please.

The Honest Company Diapers
I love the Honest Company's diapers because you get both premium materials and looks at a very reasonable price. There is virtually never any leakage, they are made from eco-friendly, sustainable, plant-derived, and hypoallergenic materials, and they come in stylishly adorable patterns. These diapers are an especially good option if your child has sensitive skin.

Oxo Tot Sprout Highchair
No, your baby won't need a highchair the minute he's born. But you may be surprised by how fast the months pass to the time he's ready for his first taste of solids, and you'll want a place to put him that makes feeding time easy and safe.
Made to hold children securely and comfortably from 6 months to 5 years, the Tot Sprout starts out as a traditional highchair, with a 5-point safety harness and a feeding tray (which can be removed if you want to pull the chair up to the table). As your baby grows, you can remove the tray, crotch post, and harness to configure it as a youth chair to hold him for years longer. The chair's sleek wood design gives crumbs no place to hide.

Wooden Toys Rainbow Building Blocks
We love open-ended toys that are fun for many age groups because the possibilities for unhurried, creative play are endless. The hoops of this seven-piece rainbow puzzle can also be used for things like making an obstacle course for other toys, towers for a fantasy game, or fences to keep imaginary pets in the corral. The puzzle has rounded edges and is painted with non-toxic, water-based colors.
