Nursery Chic: Stylish, Organic Crib Bedding from EGG

I’d venture to say that nursery decorating is one of the most enjoyable household tasks a woman can do. It tends to be easier than other rooms, because you’re generally starting from scratch instead of trying to sort through years worth of stuff. And even if you already have the major pieces, like a crib, rocking chair, etc., making it a unique space for your little one to play and grow is a great feeling. And so I completely understand the drive to make a nursery not just gorgeous, but completely organic and non-toxic and safer for an infant. So by my estimation, organic crib bedding is the only way to go. And this organic crib bedding from EGG? Let’s just say it almost makes me want to have a little egg of my own.

These products were completely new to me, which was an unexpected surprise, given that I tend to see a lot of repetition in product selection as I go from green store to green store. These crib sets are gorgeous, featuring fun, kid-friendly motifs like chicks, balloons and an animal parade. But unlike most crib bedding with these types of themes, which — let’s be honest here — tend to be pretty cheesy, these are sweet and sophisticated at the same time. And more importantly, they are all organic, which is one of the best ways to give your baby a great start in life.


If you don’t green any other room in your home, definitely aim to make your nursery as eco-friendly as possible, keeping air quality and exposure to potential toxins in mind. It’s a decision you’ll never regret. And of course you don’t have to spend nearly $400 on crib bedding to do so, but these sets were just too gorgeous to pass up!

Why It’s Green:

  • Made of organic cotton
  • Filled with recycled, formaldehyde-free filling
  • Colored with low-impact, water-based dyes

Price: $370-395 (chick crib set in both colors available from GreenDepot for $350)

    …except that we keep hearing that you’re not supposed to put bumper pads and extra bits in your baby’s crib because of suffocation risks…

    These designs are really beautiful. I agree – it’s hard to find things like this that don’t look cheap or gaudy. If anyone’s looking for a non-toxic crib to go with this, they could check out the guidelines on our blog post at Finding Non-Toxic Cribs For Your Organic Crib Mattress.
