Rethink Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers have evolved a ton from the time that I was cloth diapered! Modern cloth diapers have no pins, no rubber pants, are super cute, and super easy to use.  

What you put on your baby does matter. Your baby's skin acts as a sponge and soaks up everything that you put on it. This is why you are strongly urged not to put sunscreen on a baby under 6 months old, they just don't have the ability to filter out toxins. Although the American Academy of Pediatrics has not made a stance on whether disposable or cloth diapers are better for your baby, they have made it very clear that you should limit the amount of chemicals that you expose your baby to. Disposable diapers contain various toxins such as Tributyltin, Sodium Polyacrylate, and Dioxin. that are up against your baby's skin 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for 2-3 years.

America Recycles Day

The EcoBuns crew is extremely passionate about keeping a tiny footprint, so we were thrilled when Matt from Chef Container asked us to be part of their America Recycles Day project.

It was a blast to work with amazing leaders in our community.  We are very fortunate to live in a very forward thinking community, and many local companies are also very concerned with their environmental impact.

To see the entire video series, check out the website recyclingisknowledge.com.  You can also check out the Lakeshore Recycling Guide which offers a TON of resources and info for Ottawa and Allegan counties.

You can also take the pledge to recycle HERE.
