 Now that Earth Day is over, you’d think we’d be all done with the whole “find ways to improve our planet” thing, right? But, nope!

I’m trying to make a concerted effort to MAKE EVERY DAY EARTH DAY. After all, it’s our home 365 days of the year; why just look for ways to help it on ONE day, or one week, or one month?

The good thing is that many of us already make everyday Earth Day. Whether you cloth diaper for an economic reason, environmental cause, cuteness factor, or some other awesome reason, you’re still doing a huge part to help cut back on unnecessary waste. It’s true!

Even if the only environmental choice you make is to cloth diaper, your impact is massive.

April is a great month, isn’t it?

Depending on where you live, GCDC activities vary. Some

SAVE-THE-EARTH

In celebration of Earth Day (and, subsequently, Earth Month), we should all take a moment to do a fist pump for, well, ourselves.

You know how environmental naysayers kind of poo-poo (no pun intended) people when they suggest tasks to lessen your footprint? That no matter what you do, it’s not enough? Well, cloth diaper users are killing it in the eco-friendly department.  

Depending on your source, between 18 and 24.7 billion diapers end up in the trash…annually. 
Possibly moreSeriously. 

According to Treehugger.com, an average baby goes through 5,000 – 8,000 diapers during the time before potty-training. “The United States alone produces 18 billion dirty diapers annually, thanks to the eighty percent of parents who use disposables.” This adds up to 82,000 tons of plastic and 1.3 million tons of wood pulp. Picture a forest of 250,000 trees, destroyed.Considering that a diaper “lives” on a child’s bum
