When you’re facing a mountain of disposable diapers, environmentally responsible parenting can seem impossible.
For an easier pass, check out new ecofriendly shop Likerish.
A 22-year interior design vet, Tonya Jarrell educates her clients on how small changes can make a big impact (which any dirty-nappie-changing parent already knows). Stocked with green goods like knitted diaper covers and her own private label line of bibs, burpies, and washcloths, the store has plenty from which to choose.
Jarrell also offers classes — including a series that teaches you to green your home before baby’s arrival — as well as an organic baby registry, Saturday story mornings, and custom crib bedding made from certified-organic fabrics and yarns.
Consider it your sustainable wee-source.
