7 Simple Ways to Reduce, Reuse & Recycle in the Nursery
When I found out I was pregnant for the first time, creating a eco-chic nursery wasn't on the forefront of my mind. But slowly, as the years have passed and my philosophies on both design (I'm an interior designer by higher education) and life changed, both my style and desire to live a more waste-less clean life has increased. So as time has crawled by, my husband and I have started taking baby steps to "green-up" the nursery a bit. Little by little, tiny changes for the better have taken place. And while we still have a ways to go, I think it's shaping up nicely. By Emily Elling
