How eco-friendly am I? Well, I'll admit, not as much as I should be. But I am well on my way! Before DS was born, I had thought about cloth diapering, but the thought quickly slipped away, as I realized I am just too much of a germaphobe for that. When DS was 10 months old, I changed my mind, we went to cloth. I found a great sale on BumGenius diapers and decided to go for it. I actually had started to read up on Elimination Communication and how cloth really helps that process. Daddy wasn't all that pleased, but said as long as I dealt with the dirties, I could do whatever I wanted. :)
EC on it's own is pretty eco-friendly. I mean, the whole idea is to have a "diaper free baby" so that you can help your child recognize the body's processes. It pushed me to try other things as well. I use more "natural" products. I have read about making your own shampoo, though I haven't tried it yet. I plan to cloth diaper this new baby, along with possibly trying out cloth wipes(YIKES!) and making my own baby food. I have also found other "extreme green" ideas, such as family cloth, but I will post about that later.
What green things do you and your family do?
