Diapering is one of those topics that a parent, cannot avoid. However, what you can do, to feel a little better about the situation, is be kind to our earth and reduce toxin exposure to your Little One. Choose a greener route by not using the run-of-the-mill diaper brands and accessories that line the mainstream supermarket shelves. Go You!
As, whether your family chooses to cloth diaper, use disposables, or go diaper-free, every baby eliminates and you are going to have to do something about it. *Sigh
As we have written about before HERE – mainstream disposable diapers are NOT biodegradable meaning that they sit in landfills forever and ever. The average little human uses 6,500+ diapers before they are potty trained! According to a 2008 Time magazine article “The Real Diaper Association, an advocacy group founded in 2004, estimates that 27.4 billion disposable diapers are used each year in the U.S. (according to the EPA, that translates into more than 3.4 million tons of waste dumped into landfills)”.
Crazy… when you think about it!
In conjunction with fellow Mummy Blogger, My Darla Clementine, we are giving away goodies, which will all enhance your green diapering experience and we LOVE that. We have Charlie Banana in the mix, as well as a few rocking accessories from indie shops.
THIS GIVEAWAY INCLUDES:
SET OF THREE CLOTH DIAPERS
by Charlie Banana // A diaper with options(Facebook, Pinterest)
This three pack of cloth diapers comes in “Fluffy Love,” which includes the three diapers pictured in the giveaway image above. They are one-size and feature bra-strap-type adjustment options to ensure a perfect fit. These are pocket diapers (meaning you stuff the inserts inside of them) and come with 6 inserts for extra absorbency. These diapers are also a 2-in-1 system, allowing you to use a disposable insert instead.
Charlie Banana, (don’t you love the name), is committed to providing diapers that prevent rash and are healthy, eco-friendly, and economical. They also support and promote charities, especially Operation Smile and Project Child Save.
