Buy a Cradle: Woodly Plants a Tree for Baby


Talk about Eco-Design – Woodly puts their money where their mouth is. For every cradle you buy, they not only plant a tree, but they name it after your baby! And what awesome cradles these are. The suspended cradle is the “Roll” model and the cradle on sticks is the “Pluma”.

Pure, non-treated wool felt is the nest for your special delivery. And they think ahead – with the Roll, when your baby is all grown up, just remove the felt nest and use it for a magazine rack.

The birch shell, when turned upside down, makes a great table for a kid’s room! This is an organic cradle – the mattress is 100% pure cotton with all-natural spelt husk stuffing. The stitching is gorgeous, hand sewn in “saddler” style.

And as your baby gets older – they can watch what’s happening with their tree and track their namesake’s growth on a special website (trees are being planted in Senegal, Camerun, Argentina, Malawi and Haiti).

An environmentally sound, organic product that will serve your babies as they grow into children. And their trees grow along with them!
