  1. How to avoid flame retardants in your living room

    Furniture and carpets can be treated with a so-called perfluorinated chemical that makes the fabric less sensitive to dirt and water. Your furniture can be treated with flame retardant in both the padding and the fabric. Remnants of this chemical often end up in the household dust and air and is linked to a number health concerns. This chemical can later be found in the breast milk.

    In addition, the television or the computer's plastic casing can contain flame retardants and old appliances may contain the most dangerous varieties. The plastic around the wires can contain hormone-disrupting phthalates. 

    What you can do

    Ask in store for furniture without flame retardants.

    Avoid furniture that is impregnated with perfluorinated chemicals.

    Consider repairing furniture that have holes that are exposing the foam stuffing.

    Natural materials such as wool have fluid-repellent properties without impregnation.

  2. 6 steps to a plastic-free dining room

    Bisphenol A is a common plastic chemical that children ingest through food. Crushed tomatoes, canned corn and caviar are some examples of metal containing chemicals. Even in fish, meat and other food there are often chemicals that spread with the help of plastic items. Oil cloths may be made from PVC and contain harmful substanc:es that soften the fabric. lf the floor in the school kitchen and dining room are made of PVC, substances accumulate in dust and can be inhaled or swallowed.

    Avoid PVC-packaged food

    Use cast-iron skillet and utensils of wood or stainless steel for cooking

    Avoid storing hot food in plastic containers - more chemicals are released by heat.

    Serve food and beverages on porcelain, stainless steel and glass.

    Avoid canned foods from metal.

    Clean and ventilate the dining room regularly.

  4. Eco-friendly products in the baby room

    Most children spend a lot of time in their room - during play and when they sleep. Besides that children are sucking and biting on toys and other things in the home there are also secreted chemi­cals from toys and gadgets that the child is get­ ting through air and dust. Soft plastic figures often contain PVC and can leach substances that make plastics soft.

    Some­times there are heavy metals such as lead in toys mode of PVC plastic and electric toys. The plastic casing of video games and stereos can contain flame retardants. Old appliances may contain the mast dangerous varieties. Lead can be found in the soldering inside the electronic gadgets and wires are often softened with harm­ful phthalates.

    What you can do:

    Buy eco-labelled toys, furniture and electronics when you can.

    Recycle discarded electronics such as cell phones instead of letting your child play with them.

    Have separate playrooms and bedrooms if possible. Keep toy boxes in another room.

    Avoid electronics in the children's room.

    Ventilate and clean regularly.

  5. 5 steps to an eco-friendly baby shower

    Baby shower

    Are you planning on hosting a more environmental friendly baby shower? Sometimes it can be a bit tricky to know where to start. That’s why we have gathered all our favourite ideas in one post to help you. What’s better than welcoming future babies with a cleaner planet and brighter future? Together we can all make a difference. In this way you can spread the word about green living and celebrate life in a safe, clean and healthy way.

    1. Start with a unique invite

    The most environmental friendly way to send out invites is probably to do it digitally through, for example, email. It is an easy and affective way to spread the word and keep track of all replies. Check out Evite to make the invites more special. However, some want physical invites. Then a seeded card might be right for you. It is a great way to reduce paper waste. When the card is planted it composts leaving only wild flowers and soil. Doesn’t that sound amazing? Your guests will also be able to keep a nice memory.

    2. Give eco gifts

    In the invite, encourage the guests to wrap their presents in recyclable paper, newspaper or baby blankets. Also, inspire them to buy more green baby products like for example organic clothing or wood toys.

    3. Decorate more environmental friendly

    Let’s skip all those plastic decorations that just end up on the landfill not doing much good. Instead, use real flowers to decorate with. A baby shower is a celebration of life so what’s a better way to symbolise that than with real flowers?

    The centrepiece of the baby shower is of course the nappy cake with Eco by Naty nappies. Since we make the most environmental friendly disposable nappies on the market it is the obvious choice if you want to focus on an environmental friendly baby shower.

    These nappies are the best choice for the coming baby since they are free from toxins, allergy friendly and better for mother nature. Another tip is to use organic baby clothes, that are gifts to the expected baby, as a décor.

    4. Cook delicious fresh food

    First of all, skip the plastic tableware. Instead, use your nicest china or environmental friendly alternatives to disposable cutlery. Also, when making the delicious food, keep these simple rules in mind:

    • Buy as much organic food as possible
    • Buy in season fruits and vegetables
    • Serve less meat, cheese and milk
    • If possible, eat more food raw to save energy
    • Eat locally produced
    • Buy food with as little packaging possible

    5. Make memories

    To get a good and fun atmosphere some activities are always appreciated by the guests. If the expecting parents have a garden a tree could be planted in the baby’s honour. What a great way to make an impact.

    The nappy cake guessing game is also a hit.

    How many nappies is the cake constructed with?

    What baby items are hidden inside?

    What nappy brand is cake made with?

    Another fun game is to ask all the guests to bring a baby photo of themselves. Then all the photos are placed on a board, the fridge or table for the guests to match the right baby photo with the right guest. In the end ask all guests to share their most memorable story from their own childhood. This will unquestionably make people at the baby shower shed a few tears of joy and make your eco baby shower memorable.

  6. Your Family, Nappies and the Environment

    Where does all the nappies go?

    Did you know that 6 percent of all the total waste on landfills comes from nappies? 6 percent!

    One baby contributes to as much as one tonne of nappies per year. The scary part is that no one knows how long it takes for the nappies to decompose, but it is estimated to take about 250-500 years.

    Do you really want to be part of this terribly stinky garbage collection? On top of that, the ingredients in conventional disposable nappies could harm humans, animals and nature. Some examples are plastic, which ends up in the oceans harming sea animals. Fossil fuels causing environmental change and dioxins, which are linked to causing cancer.

    Disposable nappies are a parent's best friend but one of the Earth's worst enemies. 

    Is Eco by Naty the best choice for the environment?

    We aim to use renewable resources as often as possible while also focusing on performance. Today, Eco by Naty nappies is one of the most environmentally friendly disposable nappies option available on the market with 51% renewable materials. Our competitors in the “green” category of nappies only contain an average of around 30% renewable materials. 

    Eco by Naty believes in going green without giving up performance to simplify your life and minimize the impact on the environment and your family's health. We voluntarily undergo strict, rigorous environmental inspections of our products. Both Eco by Naty and our raw material suppliers have been independently tested and successfully complied with a number of strict conditions regarding the environmental impact of their production. Read more about our independent certifications here.

    For example, the conventional plastic outer sheet has been replaced with a biodegradable material made from maize starch and cellulose fibre, both biodegradable materials. Also, the chlorine free wood pulp is derived from sustainable forestry; where more trees are planted than felled. We also strive to always use natural material for all of our packaging and for our use of fuels. By investing a major part of our resources into Research & Development we continue to improve the materials we use.

    This is why Eco by Naty is the best alternative for conscious families and for mother nature.

  8. 5 fruits you want to change to organic

    What does ordinary fruit from the grocery store actually contain? We have studied the NFA’s latest tests on non-organic fruit. The fruit came from orchards sprayed with pesticides. This primarily affects nature, animals and workers. However, residue is also left in the fruit you eat.


    Shouldn’t the symbol of health – truly be fresh? We think so, but in 9 of 10 apples, pesticide residues were found. Some apples contained carbendazim, a substance suspected to be carcinogenic, endocrine disrupting and harming for the reproduction system. Unfortunately, you can’t wash this away, as there is in the whole fruit.


    This children’s favorite contained residue of pesticides in 7 of 10 tests. Many countries have an excellent climate for organic pear cultivation. Yet are organic pears almost impossible to find in stores. Switch to organic – show pear farmers that demand exists!

    Citrus fruit

    Are you annoyed that organic citrus fruit can become moldy if you leave it for too long? It is because it is NOT treated with imazalil, a substance that prolongs the shelf life of the fruit. imazalil is suspected to be carcinogenic and endocrine disrupting.
    Almost all citrus fruit – 95 percent – contained residue of various pesticides. Most of it is in the skin, but also in the flesh.


    The cute little grapes are best at being the worst when it comes to most types of residues in the same sample. And guess what percentage of the grapes contained pesticide residues? 96 percent! And several of the pesticides are known to be harmful. Some can´t be washed away as they appear inside of the fruit. You can also find remains in raisins and wine.


    Skip the nasty pesticide-bananas! They are really heavily sprayed and in 67 percent of the tests, residues were found. These pesticides are primarily a problem for the environment, farmers and their families. They are exposed to one of the world’s most dangerous pesticides, paraquat. It harms nature for a long time and exposed people can, in worst case, suffer from a lung collapse. The substance was banned in Sweden and the EU long ago, partly thanks to the SSNC’s work.
    Most tropical fruits, such as pineapple and mango, comes from the same heavily sprayed plantations.

    Any questions? Ok, we already have some answers.


    Does organic food contain residues?

    No. NFA did the same tests to samples of organic fruit. They made 62 tests, one of which showed traces of a substance used in protective pouches hung around the banana bunches. All the other 61 tests were free from pesticides.

    Aren’t the samples mostly below the limit of pesticides?

    True. Within the EU, there are limits on how much pesticide residue food may contain. Very few of the fruit samples are above this limit, but the mixture of many different substances can cause unknown health effects. EU maximum levels is made for one subject at a time, even though we are exposed to thousands of chemicals over a long period. The limit also does not take into account that hormone-disrupting effects can occur even at low doses.

    Why are the children most susceptible?

    Because children are not small adults. They are in a development where the body is more sensitive to chemicals. Children also eat more fruits relative to their body weight and thus higher exposure.

    Should I be afraid to eat non-organic fruit?

    No. No one should be afraid to eat fruit. It is healthy and environmentally smart. However, it is time to question how our food is produced and start making demands. Preschool can have organic fruit break. Politics can facilitate for organic farmers and consumers. Stores can advertise organic fruit better, instead of allowing them to mold in a dark corner. Unsprayed fruit should not rot away in our residential gardens.

    Change to organic fruit in favor of nature, animals and farmers. And if you want truly fresh fruit.

  9. 5 Steps to an Eco Friendly Baby Room

    Do you worry about harmful chemicals in the baby’s daily environment? Follow these 5 easy steps to create a eco friendly and healthy baby room.

    Babies and young children are extra sensitive to chemicals that can harm the developing hormone and nervous systems. Chemicals can be absorbed directly through the baby’s thin skin but also by being ingested or inhaled. Therefore is it important to use safe and organic products close to a small baby. Especially products that are in constant contact with the baby, such as diapers. By choosing non-toxic nursery beddings, furniture, rugs and paint in your newborns room you are giving your baby the best start possible.

    1) Non-toxic baby crib

    Use a crib made of solid wood (with water based finish), bamboo, rattan, willow or metal to avoid harmful substances. Plywood, MDF, particle board, composite board or fiberboard are bound with toxic, off-gasing formaldehyde-based glues that are recognized carcinogenic. Also remember to wash all new materials such as beddings, pillows or blankets before use.

    2) Healthy crib mattress

    Look for organic. Choose a vinyl-free padding and organic cotton mattresses, FREE from toxic flame retardants and other VOCs*. Beware that “Natural cotton” might not be organic. Opt out from plastics that leak bisphenol and phthalates (potential endocrine-disrupting chemicals), brominated flame retardants; PBDEs, (hormone-disrupting effects and reduction on fertility in humans) and or have vinyl coverings. Vinyl contains potentially carcinogenic chemicals.

    3) Organic Changing table

    A baby spends a lot of time at the changing table so make that spot a non-toxic environment. Use a 100 % organic changing pad cover (don’t use plastics) and put an organic towel on top under the baby if you like. Wash everything before use in a detergent free from perfume and dyes.

    4) Floor and rug

    Linoleum or wood are good choices. Avoid vinyl floor because of the emissions. Use a rug made of natural fibers such as wool, organic cotton or coir, and has a non-toxic backing and underlay pads that are sewed, not glued, to the back.

    5) Non-toxic wall decorations (clings)

    Don´t decorate your baby’s room with PVC (polyvinyl chloride) wall graphics. They leak off-gassing chemicals and that is not healthy. Make your own stencils or buy online and paint amazing decorations directly on the walls with a non-toxic paint.

    * VOCs (volatile organic compound) — toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene, and dipentene.

  10. 6 Ways to a Greener and Cleaner Makeup Bag

    Looking to eco-boost your makeup bag? With a little help from SSNC, we have collected the best hands-on advice.


    1. Clean Your Brushes

    You’ve probably already heard from a dozen beauty gurus that cleaning your brushes regularly – preferably every time you’ve used them – is essential. However, brush cleaning is not only a beauty YouTuber’s best friend – it’s also important for us health and eco devotees.

    Because what happens when your makeup brushes are left lying around dirty? They collect dust. It’s well studied that the dust in our homes mirrors our chemical environment, and the same studies have found everything from bromated flame-retardants to phthalates and perfluorinated substances in dust. That’s not something you want to swoosh around in your face.

    2. Don’t Do Anti-Dandruff

    Many common anti-dandruff shampoos contain zinc pyrithione, a substance that is highly poisonous for fish and other water organisms. Half a teaspoon of such a shampoo is enough to kill 50% of the fish in a 265-gallon aquarium within 4 days!

    So: if you think you have dandruff, investigate if it’s actually just dry skin flakes from your scalp (it’s considerably more common than you think!). In that case, moisturizing the scalp usually solves the problem. Use a mild shampoo and give the scalp an oil massage every now and then.

    3. Use Less for More

    If you buy and use fewer products, you’re also decreasing the total amount of harmful substances you’re exposed to every day and doing the environment a favor.

    But how can you cut down on products while still maintaining your day-to-day look? Our best tip is to look for multi-use products. Many organic makeup brands carry small pots or sticks that you can use both on cheeks, lips and lids. And even if the packaging specifically says “lipstick”, we’re betting a dime on that it will look gorgeous lightly blended on your cheeks anyway.

    4. The Longer it Sits…

    A good rule of thumb is that the longer your skin is exposed to a product, the more careful you should be when choosing it. In practice, this means that you can skip on the hand soap and shower gel if you like and focus your energy on stuff that actually stays on your skin. This is extra important when it comes to products that are easily absorbed, like skin- and body moisturizers. Naty Eco Lotion should satisfy the demands of even the thirstiest skin.

    However, for the sake of the environment, we strongly suggest that you at least check if your soap is biodegradable before purchase.

    5. Say No to Fragrance

    Fragrance is notoriously hard to assess from a health and environmental point of view, as the scent ingredients usually remain a mystery. So, the safest way to go is definitely fragrance free – or at least decreasing your amount of perfumed products.

    If you know for sure that you’re not sensitive to fragrance, you can try wearing natural scents like oils and extracts in small doses. There are even exclusive perfume brands entirely specialized in organic fragrances nowadays, so you won’t need to cut down on the glam! But do remember to be careful, as natural fragrances can cause just as many allergic reactions as synthetic ones.

    For kids, always go fragrance free. Even mild scents, no matter how pleasant, can be harsh on sensitive baby skin.

    6. Watch Out for Halloween

    If you’re cleaning out your makeup bag and you really mean it, not even Halloween is safe. In a 2015 study by the Swedish Society of Nature Conservation, half of the tested Halloween paint kits contained hormone disrupting and/or allergenic substances. So you have every reason to stay away from grease paint and other Halloween play makeup as much as possible.

    One way to stay safe is to dress the kids up in costumes that don’t require any makeup. For bonus points: create your own DIY costume of what you already have at home. Mother Nature says thank you!
