New Year's Sustainable Resolution: Cloth Diapering
With 2022 approaching, many of us are taking this opportunity to have a new resolution, goal or wish for the New Year.
Of course, the sustainability aspect as well as the concern for the environment are becoming more and more important values in our society. So why not make it a resolution to be a little kinder to the environment and simply do the best that we can with the resources we each have access to?
We believe a resolution should be accessible, achievable and rewarding! Therefore we must not set a drastic objective which would inevitably be quickly abandoned. With this in mind, it could be possible for your family to opt for linens instead of paper towel rolls to participate more actively in composting. For other families, New Year would probably be a great time to dive into the cloth diaper universe. As mentioned several times on our website, cloth diapers not only save you a lot of money, they also help to be better for the environment.
In fact, every disposable diaper that goes to trash takes over 500 years to be completely decomposed in landfills. You can imagine the amount of diapers a baby needs up until cleanliness is multiplied by the number of children using disposable diapers. This creates an unimaginable amount of disposable diapers at the landfill in a very short period of time.
Cloth diapers are a way to meet your child’s needs while reducing your family's ecological footprint.
