We've been thinking a lot at our house about ways we can minimize our negative impact on the environment - how to shrink our carbon footprint, for those who know the lingo. :-) We've had new energy efficient windows put into the house, and are looking forward to using less natural gas and electricity to keep the temperature comfy. We are now avid composters, turning our egg shells, banana peels, dryer lint, and yard clippings into rich fertilizer for the garden. I'm even making all of Aaron's baby food at home, reducing packaging consumption, energy waste, and greenhouse gas emissions. Our most recent foray into environmental stewardship has turned Aaron green -- at least his rear end. :-)
Yup. We're taking the plunge and transitioning to cloth diapers. Our friends the Scaccos convinced us that it's pretty easy with the new and improved bumGenius 3.0 cloth diapers. I love that this diaper is a one-size-fits-all, from newborn to toddler, which makes the initial investment a little easier to swallow. We only have six for now, but will need to add to our collection if we're going to use them exclusively. And the Scaccos are right - it is pretty easy!
We're curious to hear about ways that your family is working to minimize waste. Any creative ideas out there?
