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.

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.

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.
