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

My disclaimer up front is that I'm a freelance writer at Inhabitots, however, I would read this blog regardless. I actually do read most of the posts there by other bloggers because the whole darn team is so eco-savvy, hip, and smart and before I ever worked at Inhabitots I read their parent/partner blog, Inhabitat for years.

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: 

Quote:
Our mission is to provide parents and others with babies and young children a resource for exploring and researching modern, sustainable, healthy design for kids. Inhabitots covers interior design, furniture, clothes, toys, and green lifestyle choices to help benefit the little ones in our lives.
 

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!

 


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.

Description:

With the motto “Sustainable design for the next generation“, Inhabitots is the baby / parenting focused website in the Inhabitat family. The site was started during the summer of 2008 by Inhabitat.com founder Jill Fehrenbacher as she prepared for the arrival of her first child in August 2008. We recognize that the birth of a child is a turning point in people’s lives and the impetus for many people to ‘go green’ and really start researching the materials and production involved in all items that closely touch our lives. With this in mind, Inhabitots.com was created as a resource for parents, families, and anyone else interested in sustainable modern design for children. With a focus on design specifically targeted at babies, toddlers and kids, Inhabitots.com is a supplement to the wider focus of Inhabitat.com
