What's a simple eco-friendly habit all families can start?
Look into your trash can for a week and see what types of items you are throwing away. Many of the one-time-use items have reusable options; like paper towels. Every families waste is different but some common items that have reusable options include paper towels, napkins, plastic baggies, paper plates, and even disposable diapers. It may take a few more minutes to wash and clean the reusable variety but you'll end up saving money and your trash consumption will decrease!
What would you say to moms who want to be more eco-friendly, but worry it will be more expensive?
While you may spend a few dollars more in the beginning, choosing an eco-friendly reusable product will end up saving you money in the long run. By reusing items over and over again you will no longer have to go buy the disposable products you once depended on. You'll also save time because you'll no longer have to run to the store when you run out of those items.
What's one of your favorite eco-friendly brands you've discovered?
Reusable, modern cloth diapers are by far my favorite eco-friendly product that our family has been using over the past few years. We've saved thousands of dollars in the past 2-3 years and we don't ever run out of diapers. My daughter had only a few diaper rashes so we saved even more money by not having to buy diaper rash cream and expensive doctors visits. My personal favorite brands are the bumGenius 4.0 and Rump-a-Rooz pocket diapers.
