Inspired by her daughter, Alexandra Thusy-Privat founded Peek a Green. Combine that inspiration with her motivation to find safe baby products and her entrepreneurial spirit (which was her determination) and a place to buy the safest baby products was born.
“When I had my daughter, I thought I could trust the manufacturers, the stores and the FDA to do their jobs and provide our children with safe products. But I realized moms and dads were on their own and had to do their own research!” she said.
Thusy-Privat spent hours looking for safer alternatives for her baby girl. “I felt that I could help by handpicking the safest products. I also realized that safe for baby and safe for the environment were linked and that's how I started Peek a Green!”
Peek a Green features baby-friendly items that are also eco-friendly. They’ve created unique gift sets for all occasions; baby showers, birthdays, holidays and every day gifts for babies and their older siblings.
The shop has a partnership with Trees for the Future which means for every item purchased a tree is planted. When you shop with Peek a Green, you are buying safer products for your baby and also creating a greener future for all children.
Thusy-Privat handpicks every item featured in her shop and everything must meet certain criteria. Here’s a look at her handpicking policy:
