Let’s talk about green parenting! 🌱
If you have kids, convenience rules … WE GET IT! But if you’re looking to make your family life a little greener, check out some of the ways we try to cut back on waste in our everyday lives.
#1 Cloth cleaning wipes 🧽
We use the FinalWipe system (cleaning cloths and eco-friendly tablets) to clean up high chair messes.
#2 Cloth diapers 💩
Cloth diapering is not as bad as it seems!! And it cuts back on so much waste compared to disposables.
#3 Reusable water bottles 💧
Many of you probably already do this! A reusable water bottle makes it easy to bring drinks on the go without adding single-use plastics to landfills.
#4 Bamboo toothbrushes 🪥
Toddlers learning to brush go through toothbrushes fast, and those plastic toothbrushes are yet another form of plastic waste! We found a more sustainable option to help our daughter practice brushing with a manual brush.
#5 Reusable snack containers 🥨
Reusable snack containers instead of plastic baggies! We have these refillable pouches for things like yogurt and applesauce.
#6 Hand-me-down clothes, books, toys, and games ♻️
Hand-me-downs are a wonderful way to reduce and reuse! Ask around your network for anyone ready to pass items along or buy used, and then donate or pass along when you’re done!
