    Hi! This New Year brigs a family resolution :) we are going to cut back on as much waste as possible. We have been cloth diapering our son for 7 months now, he has never worn a disposable diaper, ever! We are going to begin using cloth wipes, something I’ve wanted to do for awhile but haven’t started. Additionally, we’ve started working to grow vegetables in a small greenhouse that we will use for baby food and are going to start to buy his clothing used instead of new, consignment sales have always been a prt of our lives but now I’d like to opt out of buying new clothing so that we can reuse clothing. It’s all about being environmentally friendly, I’d like to teach my little guy that it’s possible to live without constantly spending and be earth friendly while we’re at it! Time to put that money into his college saving fund :) we would love the opportunity to try out this brand from the giveaway as well as being to curse cloth wipes. Thanks for the opportunity!!
