Monday, April 22 is Earth Day, a time to celebrate things that encourage environmental responsibility. Cloth diapers are a great way to reduce your environmental impact every day, on Earth Day and beyond! That’s why we began Change 3 Things. We hope you will join us and pledge to change (at least) three cloth diapers each day. We chose three diapers because we feel it’s an attainable goal. Even if your daycare doesn’t accept cloth diapers, you can change three cloth diapers each day. Even three cloth diapers a day can have significant impact. Are you up for the challenge?

Family Camping
June 27, 2012 2:23 pm | by

This week is National Camping Week and to celebrate, our family went camping last weekend for the first time since we’ve become parents. I love being outdoors and since my husband and I both work in tech-related fields, it’s very difficult for us to completely disconnect and take a break as long as there is cell service available. There’s nothing quite like going deep into the woods to render your smartphone useless. At first, our kids seemed to be annoyed at the amount of effort required to do anything, especially the hike to the outhouse. There was a great deal

Reusable Swim Diapers

Back when Vicki was 6 months old, I started taking her to swimming lessons. I prepared weeks in advance by registering her for swimming, buying her a bathing suit, and purchasing a reusable swim diaper. I was good to go. Everything went swimmingly (pun intended) for a few months, and we greatly enjoyed our weekly swim. Then it got cold and I dropped the ball and forgot to register for the winter session. By the time we went back to swimming, Vicki needed a new bathing suitand she had grown out of her swim diaper. As I was pressed for

We know that with each cloth diaper you change instead of a disposable, you prevent landfill waste, but exactly how much is saved every day from local landfills? Last year, we introduced the Change 3 Things challenge. We asked parents and caregivers to change at least 3 cloth diapers a day instead of disposables. We set up a Facebook page to track the progress and even have a form available on the website so you can report exactly
