UPDATE as of 5/24/09: This deal is no longer available from Overstock. I’ll be looking for similar deals and I’ll post them as soon as I find them! For now, check out the rest of the deals in the nursery and Green Steals of the Week categories.
When you’re a pregnant, especially with your first baby, all the additional expenses to build a nursery can be daunting, particularly when trying to make it non-toxic and eco-friendly. There’s new furniture to buy, layette items to be found, and you have to decide whether to go with traditional dispoable diapers (bad for the Earth) or opt for reusable cloth diapers. Well thanks to the wonderful Jackie over at Tiny Decor, I discovered a deal today that will make your green nursery-building a whole lot easier.
Overstock.com is currently offering the Netto CUB Crib for $199.99 and the matching Changing Station for $149.99. These are steals compared to the normal retail price of $625 each. You literally cannot beat this deal. Period. These pieces are “slight seconds,” meaning that there could be very slight imperfections to the finish, but there is nothing wrong with the way the furniture was built. They are also non-returnable. For these prices, those would be two very small risks I’d be willing to take.
Why It’s Green:
- All of the wood used in Netto’s pieces is sustainably harvested
- All of their finishes are non-toxic and non-VOC emitting
- Composite materials meet European “E1” toxicity standards
