The green crib: Lamps and night lights
Keep both the boogieman and the high energy bill monster at bay with kid-appropriate lamps and night lights that use energy-efficient bulbs and/or are made from eco-friendly materials.

Welcome to the fifth installment of “The green crib,” a series of posts where I focus on a single room in the home where an adult’s good green influence — and decorating sense — will ideally rub off on said room’s primary inhabitant: a little one.
Today, with the season of things that go bump in the night
upon us, I'm turning my attention to low-impact lamps and night lights that are ideal for nurseries and kids' rooms. Some run on long-lasting, energy-efficient bulbs like LEDs and CFLS while some are made from eco-friendly materials. Some are both energy-efficient and
made from eco-friendly materials. All
add a fun, decorative touch to a room while serving a most important function: keeping the boogieman at a distance (and keeping parents from bumping into things in the middle of the night).
