Thanks mom2b. We plan on using a clothes line and making our own laundry soap for the cloth diapers so that should cut down on some environmental impact. Also using energy efficient washer and dryers and a water heater should cut down on impact as well.

The main thing with disposables that is the worst for the environment is all the poop that ends up in a landfill. Even if you use disposable diapers, you are supposed to put the poop in the toilet and not in the landfill but most people don't.

good work on going green! Just FYI, the water,energy, and heat (you would use heat if you wash on warm and/or put them in the dryer) and laundry soap you spend on washing cloth diapers can equal close to the cost of buying regular diapers (and with the water,energy and/or heat that the laundry uses, the environmental impact is about the same too).

It is addicting, Kim. I am constantly looking at things we use or buy and trying to come up with cheaper, greener ways to do it.

Thanks for the comment. I will have more green tips in the coming weeks. I hope you like them.

I think we may have been separated at birth. Although, I would say my husband is more of the hippie. But, I have found that once we started making changes as simple as planting herbs and making all-natural cleaning supplies, we get kinda excited and want to do more.

Thanks for the recc NLI. The builder choose the base color for all our walls and we have been too lazy to paint over them. When we do, I will keep this band in mind.
Thanks

I can recommend Pittsburgh Pure Performance paint. We painted nearly the whole inside of our house with it with zero detectable odor. It's a fantastic paint, and I love the eggshell finish - looks a bit nicer than flat and is durable even with scrubbing. Not Michael Landon worked at a paint store in college and is kind of neurotic about his paint!
