Cariad Babi

Removing barriers to support, the Eco-friendly way

Our Store

We bring Eco shopping to Derby, from organic clothing to reusable sanitary pads. All our products are fairly traded. We carefully select products that we have personally used and believe you will love to. 

Our Services

From Pop Up Parent rooms to workshops, we offer multiple services across Derby. Take a look below to see what we do, book a one to one with our trained consultant, or drop in to a library session.

Our Mission

We are passionate about the environment, informed choice and parenting support. We combine all three to improve the lives of parents and children, and reduce the impact on the environment.

Our Blog

We deliver evidence based, reasearched information for parents to make an informed choice with. We do not give advice, we do not judge. We also blog about the realities of our own parenting journies!

Eco Store


Ethically sourced, sustainably made, organic products.

Kind to your children, kind to your planet earth.


The PoD – Opening soon!

The PoD (Parents of Derbyshire) is a central hub offering support to all parents. Here you will find various parent and child groups, support both pre and post natal, in mental health, infant feeding and more.

Each week will be jam packed with plenty to do, including try, hire or buy slings and cloth nappies! The best thing is, we fund all this support ourselves by reinvesting our Eco Store profits. So when you shop with us, you directly support the community.

Whether you need a slice of cake and a hug, or support in a friendly environment, we are here for you, also eating cake with our children!

Our Mission

Cariad Babi is a social enterprise with a mission to build a self-sustainable community for parents to support one another with informed choices, regardless of socio-economic background. Making eco-friendly products available to all is the drive behind our passion, and through various options, we aim to offer access to these choices to all parents.

We work closely with other organisations and support groups across Derbyshire, to enable as many parents as possible to access key support that will reduce the impact on other services, such as mental health.

Profits made from retailing ethical, organic and fairly traded parent and baby products will be used to fund The PoD. The PoD will provide parents with access to researched and evidenced based support, classes and workshops. The PoD will be available to use by multiple services across the county such as breastfeeding support groups whom are struggling to access funding themselves.

Our profits also fund sling and cloth nappy hire at little or no cost to the Parents of Derby. Members who meet the eligibility criteria will be able to shop online in an exclusive store with accessibly priced products, hire kits of products to try before they buy and/or apply for payment plans.

Cariad Babi believes in an ethical approach to all aspects of business, from the deliverance of support to parents, to fair trade for the product in store: even our leaflets come from sustainable sources!
