What is Sustainable Parenting?

Sustainable parenting is becoming increasingly important in today’s world, with all the environmental challenges we are facing. Taking steps to make small, conscious decisions that will benefit the environment while also providing a safe and healthy environment for our children is central to all that we do and create.


How can we, as parents, do our bit? Here at KIKI & SEBBY®, we share some tips on how to bring sustainability into your daily parenting routine.

First, think about the products you use on a daily basis. Are they eco-friendly? Look for items made from organic, natural materials, and choose products with minimal packaging. Purchasing good quality products that can be reused or passed on to friends and family after we have finished using them will help reduce the amount of waste generated. Our best selling muslins are long lasting and can be used for so many things – they certainly get a tick when it comes to sustainability! SBROUT is made from rubberwood which has been harvested in a sustainable manner (take a look at our blog post here to find out more about this).

Second, be mindful of the energy you use. Consider switching to LED lighting and unplugging electronics when not in use. You can also try to reduce your family’s reliance on cars, and instead opt for walking, biking, or taking public transport whenever possible.

Third, incorporate sustainable practices in your home. Start composting and make an effort to reduce your food waste. Use non-toxic cleaning products and avoid single-use plastics. Finally, get your family involved in eco-friendly activities, such as volunteering with local organisations or going on nature hikes.


By making small changes in our daily life, we can help create a healthier and more sustainable world for future generations. Sustainable parenting is a great way to set a positive example for our children and demonstrate the importance of protecting the environment. Let’s take the time to explore more sustainable options and make conscious decisions that will benefit our family and the planet today!
