go green or go home!
it is estimated that it takes 250-500 years for a disposable diaper to decompose in the landfill. it is also estimated that over 27 billion throw away diapers are put in U.S. landfills every year.
many, many more reasons to use 'clothies' HERE
while i was pregnant i knew i wanted to use cloth (at least while not working) and after a month of probably 85% cloth usage (with a diaper service) i think we are committed.
i admit that it is SO much easier to put a throw away on the babe. they are more absorbent and maybe two times faster to change (husband takes 3 minutes with a clothie). but...if you know anything about isla...you know she is an environmentalist. what choice do we have but to continue. our solution? disposables at night, clothies during the day...strickly.
hope we last!
