About two years before we tried to conceive I made the decision to live a greener life and reduce my carbon footprint. I purchase almost all organic groceries (for a high ass weekly grocery bill), I try to purchase mostly products packaged and made with recycled materials, and I just stopped being so wasteful. Being green has also extended to my personal hygiene. I use less chemical in my beauty products like my deodorant, tooth paste, hair care products, etc. I stopped relaxing my hair a little over two years ago and it feels great to do without the creamy crack. As I begin to spend my life savings on baby products I've looked for companies and products that share my desire to be more eco-friendly.
I've been grappling using disposable diapers. To me its like drinking bottle water, its convenient but sooo bad for the earth. Well my research lend me to my latest purchase, gDiapers, a wonderful hybrid diapering product.
gDiapers flushable diaper refills are designed to keep your baby dry and happy. Because they are plastic-free, you can flush, compost or even toss them. gDiapers flushable diaper refills are made of sustainably farmed wood fluff pulp, sodium polyacrylate (SAP) for absorbency, and cellulose rayon. No plastic.
