Diapers are usually given the most attention and thought when it comes to greening baby’s changing regime. But baby wipes are equally important in terms of caring for baby and the health of the planet. Most disposable baby wipes contain alcohol and potent perfumes that can be very irritating to a baby’s delicate bottom. Many brands of baby wipes are also saturated in liquid solutions which leave excessive moisture on baby’s bum… and where there’s moisture, diaper rashes may soon follow. Here are 3 great, eco-friendly choices of baby wipes, which will be kind to your baby and easier on the earth.

1) Disposable Wipe Recommendation
Seventh Generation Baby Wipes

Seventh Generation baby wipes contain a soothing combination of aloe vera and Vitamin E lotion. They are hypo-allergenic, whitened without chlorine bleach, unscented, and alcohol free… all attributes which lend themselves to successful, healthy diaper changes.

+ Best deal: Buy in bulk on Amazon.com – $41.99/12 packs

2) Disposable Wipe Recommendation
Nature Babycare Wipes

Nature Babycare wipes are also chlorine and alcohol free. They are made from biodegradable wood pulp which is sustainably harvested from Scandinavian forests, purified water fresh from the lakes, and topped with aloe vera for softness. Their packaging is also 100% biodegradable.

+ Best deal: Buy in bulk on Amazon.com $25.12/10 packages

3) Reusable Wipe Recommendation
Mama Rose’s Natural Wipe Packs

Mama Rose’s Natural Wipe Packs are made with an exceptionally mild combination of floral waters, known to be antibacterial and soothing for sensitive and irritated skin. They may also be used on minor cuts, burns, insect bites and for Mamas postnatal discomfort. They dry quickly and are super soft.

+ 4oz spray & 6 wipes is $24

Note: Should your baby develop diaper rash, incorporate diaper creams with calendula into your diapering routine after you have cleaned baby’s bottom. I recommend Jurlique’s Baby’s Soothing Barrier Cream $29 or Weleda’s Diaper Care $11.

    Seventh Gen Wipes are made of polyester and will sit around in a garbage dump failing to decompose for just as long as Huggies or Pampers wipes. Their lack of chlorine is good, But are they Eco? Not so muchly.
    There are a few tutorials for making your own decomposable or reusable baby wipes lurking around the internets.

  2. This is very helpful–We’ve been using Nature Babycare wipes for months now and really like them, and now we know where to get them for less cash. Thanks!

    Just wondering how you compiled your list? I would have recommended Tushies (100% non-toxic wipes…according to the EWG) and BumBoosa baby wipes which are also non-toxic and made of bamboo – making them biodegradeable.

    We love Bum Boosa Baby Wipes! We compost them when we use them for hands and faces. They compost beautifully!

    hmmm, really? Seventh Generation? There’s practically nothing eco about them.. the others are better but still contain chemicals… we’ve been using Elements Naturals wipes which are the most eco by a long shot… and they are thicker and larger than the others mentioned here.

    I have used Bum Boosa baby wipes. Bum Boosa Bamboo Baby Wipes are a unique, 100% bio-friendly product that was developed with both the planet and infants’ sensitive skin in mind. Their mission is to provide a new option for a widespread consumer product that, through its use, trees and water are saved. They are able to do this by drawing on the benefits of a bountiful, regenerative and sustainable plant for our alternative nonwoven fiber: bamboo.
    Bum Boosa aims to consciously care for consumers and the planet by making eco-friendly baby wipes with the promise of high quality natural ingredients, honesty and integrity. To that end, for each package sold, Bum Boosa plants a tree with Trees for the Future.
