Blog Action Day: Babies for Climate Change

Oct 15th

It’s Blog Action Day!  The topic this year is climate change.  Here are the Three B’s in my Babies for Climate Change campaign (that I just made up):

BIRTH!

Ok, so it’s not for everyone, but I bet I saved a ton by not going to the hospital for my birth.  No wasted packaging on drugs, no wasted gas driving to the hospital, and we didn’t have to worry about throwing away whatever free crap the hopital would have given us.

BREASTFEEDING!

One of the best things about breastfeeding is that it is free and environmentally friendly.  Think of all the energy put into the manufacturing, packaging, and distribution of formula.  Not to mention the energy used to make the bottles, wash the bottles, and eventually throw them away.  Don’t just breastfeed for your baby’s health–breastfeed for the planet!

BUTTS!

Use cloth diapers on your baby’s bottom and you’ll definitely be doing the planet a favor.  I shudder when I imagine all those disposable diapers sitting in landfills, plus all the packaging that goes along with it.  Cloth diapers are cheaper in the long run, and they are easy on the energy cost.  Check out the low-down on cloth vs. disposable at the Real Diaper Association.

Happy Blog Action Day!
