You all know I'm gung-ho about cloth diapering. It saves money, cloth diapers are SUPER cute, and best of all, it helps me cut down on the amount of nasty chemicals that Some Boy gets exposed to. Did you know that most disposable diapers still contain dioxin, a cancer-causing chemical that was banned through a UN convention in 2001 by almost every nation except the United States?
This is why I choose cloth.
However, many parents I know have trouble incorporating cloth diapers into their lives for a number of reasons: lack of time to fold the diapers, their home doesn't have a washing machine and they can't tote the diapers back and forth to the laundromat every 2 or 3 days, or they live an active lifestyle and just don't have enough space to be toting cloth around all the time.
I feel ya on the space thing. Those cloth diapers are bulky, especially when they're added to the extra clothes, food and teething toys that I constantly have on hand. What I've done to minimize bulk in my ever-growing diaper bag is to carry natural disposable diapers when I'm out and about. For a quick trip to the grocery store, I can stash some cloth diapers in the trunk for easy access. But if I'm taking Some Boy with me to a blogging convention or theme park, I love the ease of disposables.
I've started using Seventh Generation Free & Clear diapers on-the-go. They're smaller, they absorb really well, and they're free of chlorine, fragrances, latex, and petroleum. I also use their natural home products around the house, like their non-toxic laundry detergent, dish soap and all-purpose cleaners. I feel good knowing that I'm setting an example for Some Boy to live a healthy and natural life.
Using eco-friendly products is an important step toward teaching Some Boy about conservation, and Seventh Generation and Dr. Seuss' The Lorax have joined forces to inspire families to save the earth's resources with conscious consumption. Created with our little ones and the environment in mind, Seventh Generation is the natural choice for high-quality and effective products free of fragrances, latex, chlorine and other harmful chemicals. Make a difference by choosing Seventh Generation, now offering free shipping for orders over $50. As the Lorax says, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.”
