Maintaining Your Commitment to Being Green in These Times of Economic Hardship
Are cloth diapers really a viable solution? http://smr.newswire.ca/en/bummis/maintaining-your-commitment-to-being-green-in-these-times-of-economic-hardship

But are cloth diapers really more green than disposables? There is a lot of controversy out there about this issue and it is difficult, if not impossible to wade through all the arguments and find the truth. The most obvious environmental impact produced by cloth diapering a baby is reducing what we send to the landfill by literally a tonne per baby! Reduce and Re-use are the first of the three environmental maxims. And reducing and re-using is exactly what cloth diapering is all about. Re-using cloth diapers for more than one baby makes it an even more environmentally friendly choice as there is less exploitation of raw materials, less manufacturing, packaging, transport, etc.
And using organic cotton diapers is something a parent can do to ensure that their choice of diapering systems is sustainable. From the growing of the cotton right through the manufacturing process to the fabric touching a baby’s skin – organic cotton ensures a far less toxic impact upon the environment, workers and baby’s health.
Cloth diapering is easy to use, easy to wash, easy to buy and easy on the environment. And a very good way to sustain being green when times are rough.
