Our Guiding Product Principles

Guided by principles, we design and develop innovative and award-winning products from safer materials that empower parents to get outside with their children and support natural parenting.

The icons below are found on our packaging to represent the principles we used when making that product. When purchasing from green sprouts®, you are making a contribution towards intentional and principle-based product development – and that is something to feel good about!

pioneering safer materials for health and safety

Health and safety are our top priority. First and foremost, we choose safe, quality materials and strive to exceed international testing standards. When possible, we choose natural materials.

Green Sprouts has been on the forefront in researching harmful additives and safer materials, which has been core to our philosophy to ensure that our products are free of substances that pose a health risk to babies.

designing from the baby’s perspective

Our products support babies’ healthy physical, emotional, and mental growth and development. To us, “designing from the baby’s perspective” means that we put ourselves in the mind of the child when designing every product we make: How does the seam feel to the baby? What senses will this stimulate? Is this comfortable in baby’s hand? How will this support baby’s growth and development?

Becky Cannon, founder of Green Sprouts, wrote an 800+ page book on whole parenting! In it, she identifies seven Pathways of Whole Learning (shown above) that provide your baby with different kinds of learning experiences that are all essential to healthy development.

minimizing environmental impact

We appreciate nature’s intelligence and want our children and grandchildren to grow up in a healthy environment – which is why we strive to maximize the lifecycle of our products and minimize their environmental impact. As often as possible, we strive to source materials that are renewable, recycled, or recyclable for our products.

Did you know millions of disposable swim diapers are manufactured each year only to be thrown out after a single use. Our reusable swim diapers can be used all season then passed along to a friend when it’s outgrown, reducing the amount of trash sent into landfills.

supporting natural parenting with ease

We always consider practical comfort for babies and convenience for parents. Our products are designed to be fundamentally useful and effective with multiple, unique functions.
