Eco friendly maternity clothing tips that’ll extend your dollars, give back, and keep you feeling comfy and looking cute.
So you’re pregnant. Congratulations! So much to learn and stock up on. Not least of all, clothing. And we mean for you, Mom, not just baby.
That’s right, it seems one day you are wearing your regular clothes, the next you are wiggling into your leggings. Never too soon to stock up on some essentials. And you don’t have to forgo your sustainable style sensibilities for the next couple of trimesters.
Tips for Stylish Eco Friendly Maternity Clothing
1. Shop – There are many brands who offer sustainable maternity clothing. We like these two: Boob for a wide selection of maternity fashion that is comfy and looks cute too. A Pea in the Pod partnered with Citizens of Humanity on a pair of skinny maternity jeans that supports Every Mother Counts.
2. Reuse – Take a cue from Kate Middleton and wear your favorite maternity items again and again. Buy fewer pieces, invest in what you truly love, and put them away once baby arrives.
3. Borrow – Have a big event coming up? And it just happens to be in 8th month? Considering borrowing over buying. That’s right, Borrow for Your Bump allows you to rent a piece for a special occasion. A small fee for something fancy beats putting down a lot of cash for one wear.
