Pros: Glossy, beautiful images, great sustainable products, tips on how to live green as a parent but with style
Cons: Sometimes features super expensive products
That said, now I'll tell you about the blog. Inhabitots covers all things green for parents only with a design savvy, trendy slant. All products featured at Inhabitots meet specific eco criteria regarding child safety, materials, and company policies. The types of products shown are always either outstandingly beautiful, trend setting kid tech minded, or new creations that amuse or educate. The mission of Inhabitots is to let parents know that having a baby is yes, a big change, but you don't have to give up style.
The official mission:
GREEN DESIGN IS GOOD DESIGN
GOOD DESIGN IS GREEN DESIGN
Inhabitots aspires to the same. Becoming a parent does not mean having to sacrifice style or true sustainability, and Inhabitots is here to prove it!
Breastfeeding Twins: A First Hand Account
Beyond products, Inhabitots posts first hand accounts of what it's like to be a green parent, green parent rants, and tips for managing your eco lifestyle with a baby or two on board. There are also product reviews, giveaways, and some cool link round ups on Fridays.
The cons I'd say are mainly when items that are too bling, aka expensive are posted. Some are super cool, so seeing them is fun, but I like green products that are accessible to more budgets. Overall though, I love the team of bloggers there and it's one of my fave green kids blogs.
