Eco-conscious Pregnancy

There are so many resources about being eco-conscious with a new baby that I thought I would share a few just to get you started. 

I would say one of the best books I read was:
Raising Baby Green, by Dr. Greene. It is informative and gives you information about your house and thinking about things you might not have thought of.

Buying used stuff is a great way to not fill landfills.
Sign-up for Freecycle (they are constantly giving away Baby Stuff)
Baltimore Specific:
Check Craigs List and Ebay.
Things to be cautious about used is a car seat and not to get one manufactured more than five years ago. Also they say not to reuse a breast pump. Be sure to check safety recalls before purchasing anything.

There's also a eco-friendly registry system where you ask people to not buy new things, but I didn't look too much into it.
