WECF – The Sustainable Nursery

Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) via its ChildProtect Program joined forces to create a unique concept: a sustainable nursery, completely free from harmful substances.

The idea was to create a nursery where parents could confidently let their baby sleep, free from exposure to harmful substances. The initiators of the nursery are Anna Schoemakers and Tamara Peers, the creators of the hugely popular sustainable baby box.

The two came together with WECF and art students from the Academy Artemis and the Cibap Vocational School to design the nursery. They believe that the unique collaboration between students and the scientific content contributed by WECF makes it easier for consumers to shop both for attractive and responsibly produced consumer goods.
