Yes, it's late, but I'm up.

So I'm gonna post, dangit. ;)

I'm on a mission. A mission to convince my hubby-pie that cloth diapers are better than disposables. This is just one step for me of many in my personal/family crusade to help change the environment. Did you know it can take up to 500 years for a disposable diaper to completely biodegrade? 500 years! Dude, that means that the diapers I chucked while B was little won't biodegrade until his children's children have children...and then some! I-N-S-A-N-E!

So as I'm sitting here trying to convince Davey that we NEED these cloth diapers:

(I mean, doesn't it look soft??) He kind of makes a good point...If we're trying to protect the environment by nixing disposables, isn't it kind of pointless if we just increase our water consumption to WASH these cloth ones?

Now, as good a point as that sounds, there are so many factors involved than whether or not you're using too much water. First of all, these diapers won't end up in landfills and leach chemicals that keep them from leaking into the water/environment. These little babies are made of 100% natural bamboo which is soft and natural. It's grown without pesticides and is the next best thing to letting your baby go nakey. ;) So it's really a trade off when it comes to washing these vs. chucking the others.

So, after this long, blabbing post I guess my point is that I kinda convinced Davey to let us try out cloth. ;) If you have any pointers for me, feel free to drop me a line!
