Forget about pink and blue -- green is the new color craze for baby nurseries. You don't have to paint your walls that shade, of course, but creating an environmentally healthy, eco-conscious cocoon is top of the list for many moms. The catch is often the cost -- who has the extra bucks these days? We've got news: Going green no longer means spending a lot of green. And you don't have to do everything here at once (or even at all). A few small changes at a time can make your baby's world a little bit better.
The centerpiece of your baby's nursery is, of course, the crib, and most eco experts recommend buying a solid-wood model. This Graco, Eco-Friendly Dakota Classic Crib is available for just $199.99. (Visit gracobaby.com to find a local retailer.)
