Welcome to this week's 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.


Over the past eight weeks, I've wrangled up eye-catching mobiles, earth-safe nursery cleaners, organic cotton quilts and blankets, not-too-cloying handmade wall art, low-energy lamps and night lights, and eco-trendy spins on two ubiquitous pieces of nursery furniture, the rocking chair and the changing table


This week is all about variety with a look at 10 sundry nursery items ranging from from adorable small storage solutions to energy-efficient baby monitors to surfboard-shaped growth charts made from sustainable wood. Stay tuned for more neatly "categorized" posts where I'll be tackling pillows and stuffed animals, wallpaper and wall decals, toys for aspiring eco-architects, and, of course, cribs.

The green crib: Odds and ends
In this week's 'green crib' post, focus takes a holiday as I wrangle up a hodgepodge of eco-friendly nursery furnishings and accessories.
