  1. some ways that we are eco friendly are: cloth diapering, reusable nursing pads, reusable menstrual products, some re-usable bags ... but need more, not washing clothes every day (we just wash when dirty!! :o), and not using that green $$. so we buy only if we NEED something. ha

    1. I think buying things only when they are really needed is a great way to be more eco friendly! Great tip!

  2. I try to be eco-friendly however I can. Using cloth diapers and wipes is a start. I also try not to use disposable cleaning products or food containers, and of course shopping bags. I also write notes/lists on the back of junk mail envelopes.

  3. I love the new colors! Marina is such a pretty blue :)! I like that the inserts snap in and that anything can be used inside the cover!

  4. Cloth diapering, reusable "paper" towels, and reusable nursing pads are a few things I do. I am rather new to being "crunchy," but I'm working on it!

  5. In our family we like to use natural cleaning products, cloth diaper, organic garden, walk when we can, recycle, not use any chemicals on the lawn, take shorter showers, we have a compost bin, try to use reusable bags (when we remember), I use a DivaCup, we use energy efficient light bulbs.

  6. My family isn't that eco friendly. We do use reusable grocery bags, recycling, and I'm planning on using cloth diapers and wipe for the baby on the way. I do think the reusable menstrual products are something I might start to use also.

  7. We cloth diaper, I use reusable nursing pads and menstrual products, reusable shopping bags, etc. . I have a garden going and support local organic farmers as well. And, we live in the mountains, so I make every trip to town count and don't drive every day.

  8. Other than cloth diapering, we also use cloth wipes and natural solution for that. I personally use reusable nursing pads and will be using mama cloth (if I'm ever not pregnant or nursing and find the need to use them haha) We also use reusable snack bags and containers for on the go. I'm looking into using unpaper towels but haven't yet made the switch.

  9. we use reusable bags when shopping, reusable snack bags, napkins, no paper towels, cloth diapers and wipes, and I'm looking into family cloth but only for pee lol. I also want to get some mama cloth, but haven't had any flow since baby was born.

  13. I try not to buy things that are new (as in used furniture, used clothes, etc). Also, before I get rid of anything (even cardboard boxes) I try to freecycle them or offer them free on craigslist. I think it is less wasteful to re-use this way than just plain old recycling.

    ReplyDelete

  18. Cloth diapers is my current favorite, but making more food from scratch is, too, saves on packaging and chemical processing.

  19. We try to be eco-friendly. little everyday changes can really help. Like we have a reusable coffee filter for our coffee pot. we havent bought coffee filters in over 5+ years. We compost our coffee grounds:)

  20. We've been cloth diapering our grand son. I've made receiving blankets from the thrift store into: pants, bibs, burp cloths & fitted diapers. I've also been "upcycling" adult pjs and sweat shirts/pants into clothes for the grandson. I used to make old blue jeans into purses too. And , of course, we recycle / reuse what ever we can. ( I'm growing tomato plants in the same cat litter buckets we used last year )

  21. We use cloth diapers most of the time, as they are cheap, cute, and work well. I also love natural body products, and am trying to move into using them predominately. I am probably going to be getting some essential oils soon too!

  43. I love using cloth diapers and I value using cloth grocery bags. Cloth diapers save lots of money. Using cloth grocery bags saves lots of plastic from being produced and from going into landfills to sit ad infinitum!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oops, I forgot to mention that I would also like the Green Acres print (in addition to the Charming print)! Both are adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I try to find ways to be eco friendly that are helpful to the environment but don't have a seriously negative impact on our lives. I feel that things that are easily incorporated and not too burdensome are more likely to be things that you stick with. We all recycle, we use cloth diapers for our youngest, we use cloth to wipe our hands and faces rather than paper towels, we conserve energy, and we look for other things that we can do as a family.

    ReplyDelete
  46. a great way to be eco friendly is by solar power :) i love my flashlight doesnt need batteries. :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. we try and be conscious of our waste in my house. Reusable napkins, wipes, diapers, no paper towels, reusable bags, goodwill upcycling!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am just working on being more eco-friendly! I just ordered some mama cloth and I am thinking about switching to the cup. We cloth diaper and cloth wipe full time and I hang/line dry them as much as possible. I am working on switching my kitchen storage to glass and trying to recycle as much as possible. :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. i compost even in the winter- now 1 of my gardens is a compost garden- it's full of surprise plants that come up every year :) we don't have a lawn, water for food- no lawns!! cloth diapers for sure, wipes,.... primarily vegetarian diet- meat *unless you hunt your own deer isn't a sustainable food source for everyone on the planet & those cows use A LOT of water... plus the deer populations are huge since humans have killed most predators... help keep balance in ecosystems we've messed up...

  50. I love drying diapers and other clothes on the line when it's nice out!
