As we mentioned earlier this week, actress Jessica Alba’s baby shower was a celebratory — and green — affair with friends and family. The 26-year-old is on a eco-friendly streak for her nursery and has piled high a list of organic and sustainable goods for her newborn.

Alba is registered at Bel Bambini on Robertson who prides itself in carrying a variety of green products including baby skin care, furniture and apparel. Her interior decorator for the nursery, Kari Whitman, is relying heavily on Bel Bambini for cool swag from companies like Sage Creek Organics, Cariboo, and Born Free. “We’re doing everything eco-friendly,” she told US weekly.

As a family (like yours), Sage Creek Naturals shares your concern for: the health of our loved ones and of our fragile environment, the quality of life and the value of products and services. Sage Creek is 100% certified organic cotton. Organic cotton products go through many steps. From the farmer’s field, to the mill where the cotton is processed, to the tailor’s room, all the cotton and cotton fabric is tested, and certified to be organically grown and processed by SKAL, a well respected and trusted governing body in organics. The standards are so strict that commercial cotton or cotton fabric cannot be transported nor stored in the same building, to avoid cross contamination. The cotton, colors, snaps and zippers are all tested to ensure the absence of contaminants such as nickel, lead, formaldehyde, amines, pesticides and heavy metals. Copies of any of these tests or certificates are available upon request. Sage Creek USA supports the World Wildlife Fund and IFAW as a standing member and ongoing contributor to its efforts. Sage Creek only supports Fair Trade – suppliers and producers, in underdeveloped regions who abide by western standards regarding fair and decent worker’s compensation, positive working conditions and using no child labor.
