Love cloth diapers!!

Lissette Cee said...

We plant seeds every Earth day. Can't grow too much in an apartment but it gives us fresh herbs, better air quality and an renewed appreciation for nature.

Danielle Stephens said...

Use or reusable snack bags more

To be more green I was thinking of trying night time cloth diapers.

Kristina S said...

To be more green I will dry my clothes outside all summer (when it is not raining!)

Amanda Jordan said...

One way will be green on Earth Day is using only reusable products that day. My goal this year is to not produce any trash for a full 24 hours. We already use cloth diapers, wipes, and napkins. So it will be interesting to see what else we can get rid of.

Anne Sweden said...

I like that cloth diapers reduce the amount of trash our family throws away. With 2 in diapers that would be a LOT of trash!

AmberFawn said...

To be more green: continue cloth diapering, composting, reusable lunch containers

Michelle Suttles said...

We already cloth diaper and in the last year have switched to (mostly) cloth wipes. To be greener, I would like to move to unpaper towels and am interested in some of the reusable menstrual items.

Ayla Crosley said...

I'll be using unpaper towels and napkins as well as reusable sandwich bags. Cant wait to try them!

Use cloth wipes!

Kristina L said...

Trying not to drive vehicles as much is a good way to cut down on carbon emissions. I also always try to follow the 3 Rs "reduce, reuse, recycle".

Rachel R said...

Stop using paper towels.

hayley schermerhorn said...

We can be more green by buying more food in bulk instead of packaged!

Jess said...

If I weren't in the hospital, we were going to plant some trees in our yard. But instead I am shopping online for prefolds for my preemie on the way in 3 weeks! We intend on CDing this one from the start (we started at 7mon with #1).

Sarah Elyce said...

We walk instead of drive when we can, compost, use cloth diapers now (yah!), and recycle/reuse all eligible materials. My main focus right now is to reduce electricity use by eliminating as much phantom use as possible.

marissaslife said...

I love to use PLS cloth pads

I think one way you can be more green is by using cloth diapers and wipes of course! It saves on so much pollution that takes years to deteriorate. I also think its important to teach children the importance of reduce, reuse, and recycle concepts.

Carrie Barron said...

One thing I still need to work on is using more green cleaning products.

Anel said...

One thing I can do this year for Earth day in order to be more green, is to switch over to cloth wipes! Thanks!

Sarah Hayes said...

I cant use more reusable products like unpaper towels

Karen Waldorf said...

We already cloth diaper (and are going to be part of the GCDC on Saturday!) and recycle and try to chose products with less packaging. We've recently started using more re-usable snack containers (love the Planetwise snack & sandwich bags instead of plastic ones) and I'm looking into getting re-usable squeeze pouches, since I love being able to take applesauce and such out with us, but hate how wasteful throwing out the store bought packages are.

Anna Monte said...

We can try to use only cloth towels for messes instead of paper towels. We already use reusable snack bags instead of ziplock bags.

Amy Hall said...

To be more green we couild stop getting so many to-go pops, using all those cups

As a family, we decided to cut out beef in 2015. As California enters its 4th year of drought, it's critical that residents find ways to save water. Of course, using HE appliances and taking shorter showers is very important, but eating less meat could make a larger impact.

Just ONE pound of beef takes almost 2000 gallons of water to produce. By contrast, it's only 500 gallons for a pound of chicken. You can read more here:

For comparison, a load of laundry is around 20-50 gallons, depending on your washer.

Catherine said...

We are already working hard, so we will keep using cloth products, composting, raising chickens, conserving water, etc.

Allen & Erica said...

Reusable menstrual products

Anisa said...

I have started cloth diapering with my 3rd child. Started with just during the day but have now started at night too. I am also using cloth wipes. I have thought about starting to use cloth napkins and towels. Earth day may be the time to start!

Courtney Hobson said...

I'm going to try to line dry all my cloth diapers and start using reusable wipes to be more green for earth day!

Fiddlin' Dandi said...

We can use more natural laundry and cleaning products. We do some, but we could do more.

Laura Craver said...

Use momma cloth! :)

Lynette Moran said...

I think one of the most important things we can do is take away a deeper meaning than just advertising what we already do. I'm trying to be more thoughtful about how I can do more than is already routine and how I can do it with a spirit that is justified in kindness.

Michelle Wyant said...

Thanks for giveaway! Happy earth day!

Jennifer said...

We tried cloth wipes but we didn't like them. I have switched to cloth pads and I'm thinking about trying a menstrual cup.

Anonymous said...

Use your own bag than plastic bag at the store:))

Danielle D said...

We have ordered all glass to pack my husband's lunches instead of plastic baggies.

sarchan said...

Be more diligent about not wasting electricity and water.

I look forward to trying less paper products and more reusable ones. One thing I think I'll make is paper-less paper towels for the kitchen and reusable zip top bags from fabric (or just to wash out and dry my already used zip top bags) ;)

mrsmjb said...

i cloth diaper but i am going to try to make an attempt to not sue my dryer as much to dry my diapers...living in the midwest its hard but I'm going to find ways!

Morgan Schwall said...

I want to try and use less plastics. But sadly now a days, everything is in plastic. :/

Madeleine Kelly said...

I'm going green this year by cloth diapering!

Katie Nasca said...

I'd like to go full time cloth diapering (we do part time now), and try unpaper towels.

Talia said...

I think a good way to be more green for Earth Day is to celebrate nature and pass that on to your kids. For Earth Day, I want to do some gardening with my son, show him how plants grow and foster an appreciation in growing our own vegetables. And this is in addition to our cloth diapering, but I do that everyday! =)

DanaK ~ WaterPenny said...

Dry our clothes outside aka solar powered dryer ;)

In our house we use cloth napkins and home-made, all natural cleaning supplies. Cloth diapering was just the natural next step when we had our baby. :)

Sarah Parker said...

I'm going to start cloth diapering my newborn baby as soon as she's big enough!

cloth diapering is sooooo much better than disposables. I wish I knew about this option with my first kid. No rashes or blowouts or leaks.

imjustnikki said...

To be more green I could actually switch over reusable sandwich bags instead of ziploc.

Krissie M said...

We reuse glass jars from jelly, sauces, etc for other food and non-food items. We are also hand washing our cloth diapers this week to help reduce electricity consumption. :)

morganehman said...

One thing I can do this Earth Day to be green is to buy reusable shopping bags to use while I grocery shop instead of using plastic bags.

Hmm, one way I am trying to be more green is to look into one area of my life at a time and see how I can be a better steward in that area. Right now, I am focusing on a cloth diaper stash. :-)

I can wash my recyclables right away, so that I'm not tempted to trash them.

Elizabeth Hanapole said...

We made the decision to clothe diaper because it was more eco-friendly and healthier for our baby. After 2 months of using baby wipes, we are researching different methods and formulas for creating clothe wipes. Any tips on how to achieve that on the fly would be greatly appreciate this. Once I start menstruating again, I plan on using the Diva cup. We have minimized our footprint by owning one vehicle, recycling. We are always interested in learning more green ways to live our lives.

Michele Blakely said...

For Earth Day a year ago, we purchased a dozen cheap bar mop towels and a small bucket for storage of the towels under our kitchen sink. We now reach for these instead of paper towels and have greatly reduced our paper towel waste.
