Oeuf

The Oeuf Robin Collection Crib not only provides an eco-friendly sleeping space for your babe, but affordable sustainability as well. The family friendly price of just $565 makes it easy for parents to keep it green — and while Oeuf scaled back the price, they didn’t skimp on eco aspects. The Robin Collection Crib is made of sustainable Nordic pine and birch and finished with water based, eco-friendly paint (absolutely zero VOCs!). To round out the affordability factor there’s a Robin Collection Conversion Kit available that seamlessly transforms this stylish crib into an equally stylish toddler bed. Sustainability and low cost.. it’s like hitting the Mother Nature jackpot.

Ninetonine

The Ninetonine Zebra crib is one of the most imaginative crib designs we’ve seen for the nursery. Better yet, the Zebra crib, while unique is not simply form without function. The zebra’s head of this fanciful crib doubles as a useful handle and a tray for bottles, burp cloths and more. The ‘tail’ is a handy set of shelves with a set of wheels so the crib is easy to move around if you need to vacuum or if your baby just needs a change of scene. The Zebra crib is made from sustainably sourced oak and pine, with non-toxic lacquers and paints. Plus, in keeping with the use it up aspect of sustainable living, this crib can easily be converted to a day bed for your baby when he hits the toddler stage.

Leander

The Leander Bed, a lovely Scandinavian import, is oh so much more than your typical crib-to-toddler-bed conversion. You can easily transform this handy bed into a whopping five varied configurations. Made of sustainable birch, the Leander crib-and-mattress combo, starts off as a raised cot, which can be lowered when your baby gets more mobile. Later on, one side of the crib can be removed, thus creating a toddler daybed. Later still, remove the second crib side and you’ve got the perfect junior bed. Lastly, (whew) the bed can be lengthened to accommodate growth spurts because, like us, Leander gets that all kids are unique and deserve an eco-friendly place to rest.

    The center support beam broke on our bed and the owner of Structured Green has said over and over he would replace it and still 5 months later I have no bed to sleep on. We email and call every week and he now ignores our calls and the retailer we got it from. DO NOT BUY from them. Their product is crap and they don’t stand behind their products
