This morning I picked a banana peal out of the garbage. With the Plastics Challenge under way I couldn’t ignore it. Now that day 1 is complete, I can proudly say that we only have 2/3 a small bag of garbage.
Using cloth diapers makes a huge dent in our household’s waste! I can’t say the same the laundry though, but luckily for me I don’t mind doing laundry. Besides being better for the environment, cloth diapers are better for your little one too. Disposables are filled with harmful ingredients that have been linked to asthma, cancer and brain damage (Less Toxic Guide) – Yikes! There are even benefits for you, like saving your hard earned money.
Right now, I’ve got Swetpea in unbleached cotton pre-folds with Thirsties covers (no leaks – love em!). Monkey grew out of the BumGenius 3.0 pocket diapers a while back so we’ve been using disposable diapers for him. But! I am determined not to let disposable dipes be our downfall in this contest so he’s been wearing undies and peeing all over the floor instead. Why am I doing this again?
Do you use cloth diapers? What’s you favorite dipe? Have you thought of using cloth diapers?
