Modern Cloth Nappy Sites: Our Planet Matters to You – How?

Our Planet Matters to people in different ways. We each do our own little things to make a difference.

Let’s focus in on what our guests say matters to them the most about the environment at the moment. What matters to our guests who have modern cloth nappy sites? Below are excepts from one of the questions answered by many of our guests. I thought I’d compile them into a series as they are thoughtful and interesting. The link will take you to their site or shop, the logo to their full guest post.

Our Planet Matters! Tell us your perspective on the environment – any aspect! What concerns you the most?

Chris of Baby Bullfrogs says:

Our Planet worries me so much every day – especially seeing our little ones so young and what will it all be like when they have families of their own.

Saving the planet seems like such a daunting task, I believe many people disregard the seriousness of it all simply because it all seems just too hard. The reality is that it all starts with one little task and grows from there. There are so many little ways to help the environment. Teaching our kids the importance of this is paramount. I know there is so much more I could be doing to help save our planet – there is always something more we can and should do!

Just one baby in cloth nappies for 2 years saves such a huge amount of landfill – and that is just one little bottom doing their share! Imagine if all the little bottoms in the world wore cloth ! It all has to start somewhere.

Alisha of Baby Safari says:

My concern about the environment is that it is being treated like a consumable rather than a treasure we must protect. I am concerned with the amount of waste the average person produces. I love the idea of people just changing one aspect of their life to be more environmentally conscious, such as the Green Nappy Initiative.

Hollie of B Cheeks says:

Did you know all disposable nappies take over 300 years to decompose?
For each 2.5 years a child is in nappies over 700kg of disposable nappy waste is produced from just the one child.

Little Bear Bums

Catherine of Little Bear Bums says:

Having spent years working with animals and specifically in Zoo’s I have always been aware of environmental issues and the impact we have on it. When I found out I was pregnant I started looking into cloth nappies – I was determined to use cloth like my mom had with me – but after practising on teddy bears folding and pining nappies, I decided there had to be a better way. I was pleasantly surprised to find out about Modern Cloth nappies. I love them, they are quick easy and environmentally friendly. I recommend them to everyone. There is now no excuse for there to be so many disposable nappies building up in our landfills when modern nappies are as easy to use as disposables.

Upsy Baby

Penny of Upsy Baby says:

When my 2nd child came along, we noticed that we were struggling to get what little household rubbish we had into our garbage bin. It was amazing how many disposable nappies were going to landfill from our household alone! I did my research and was saddened by what I found out. How many nappies get used each and every year, how many trees are felled to make disposable nappies and the list just kept going on. It was very sad.

Tail Endz Modern Cloth Nappies

Megan of Tail Endz says:

I love the concept of cloth nappies because they are such an easy way to make an environmental difference. It is quite satisfying as you hang the nappies on the line knowing you didn’t cause too much landfill today! I also would love to be sustainable. At the moment I just do the chooks, compost, vegie garden thing but would eventually love to be a bit more adventurous.

And our comment question is the same:

Tell us your perspective on the environment – any aspect! What concerns you the most?

Meet Our Guest: Little Bear Bums

Let’s meet Catherine, the proud owner of Little Bear Bums:

Hi, my names Catherine and I live in Perth WA with my wonderful husband and beautiful 7 month old baby girl. After living an exciting life working in Zoo’s here and in England – working as an elephant trainer – I returned to Perth where I met my lovely husband and after many years together we have been lucky enough to have our beautiful baby girl.

About Little Bear Bums….

My store is called Little Bear Bums which has come about because our little girl is our Little Bear. When she was born my hubby called her Little Bear, and as I was about to change her nappy one day I said to her “Let’s change your little bear bum”.

After the birth of my little girl I started using Modern Cloth Nappies. It worked out so much cheaper than disposables and also so much better for the environment, not to mention they are just so cute. However, most of the people I spoke to had never heard of them and think of cloth as being the old terry flats and thought it was cheaper and easier to use disposables! It was this that made me decide to start an online store so I could stock and sell my favourite brands of MCN’s and any other beautiful baby accessories that I use on my baby girl, and get the word out in my local community that there is a better, easier and much cuter way to cover their babies bum than disposable nappies.
