Green Tip: Recycle That Cradle

Green Tip: Recycle That Cradle

Bassinets are notoriously short-lived, with most babies growing out of them within the first few months.

Buying something ultra expensive might not make sense, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style.

Designed by Ruth Keenan and manufactured by Green Lullaby, this cradle is made entirely of heavy duty cardboard.

It reminds us of flat-pack document boxes that assemble with little effort -- no tools necessary. And like those boxes, the cradle stores flat. Lightweight and portable. After your baby grows out of it, you can fold it up and put it away, repurpose it as toy storage or recycle it.

Surprisingly, the cradle is flame retardant. Available for $107 at Rose and Radish.
