Green Parents' List: Top 10 Green Baby Shower Gifts 2010

OTTAWA, May 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Green-minded parents can now select great baby shower gifts without the worry of lead and phthalates, or other nasty chemicals. Green Parents' List ( has released its choices for the top 10 Green baby shower gifts for 2010. The winning products were selected according to baby-appeal, parent-appeal, green-appeal and most importantly, absence of lead, phthalates, heavy metals and other nasty chemicals.

The Green Parents' List concept is simple - with so many products recalled each year for lead and other restricted substance content, Green Parents' List provides concerned parents with a resource to allow them to easily locate children's products that have been verified to comply with restricted substances laws. Each product on has been reviewed for restricted substance requirements by parents with scientific backgrounds. Products in the "Toys & Gear" category are reviewed against US CPSIA requirements for lead, phthalates and other heavy metals. Products in the "Bath & Skin Care" category are reviewed for 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde content. Products in the "Healthy Home" category are reviewed against relevant Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) requirements.

"Becoming a parent for the first time is a monumental event. Every expectant and new parent wants to do their best for their child. It's very stressful to choose products that will come in contact with a newborn, when there is such a huge selection to choose from and so many unknowns," says Patricia Calder, president of Green Parents' List. "At Green Parents' List, we have reviewed the restricted substance testing information about each of the products we post on our website. We hope that the extra information we are able to provide about the products will help reduce some of the stress in the decision-making process for new parents and those who love them!"
