We interrupt this story …

October 28, 2008

I’m all about going green lately. Well, maybe not lately – I’ve been interested in the environment for a long time and trying to find ways to support a green movement. I’ve started buying organic food not only for the better flavor but I don’t want the pesticides and hormones in my body nor in my family’s body. I also want to encourage organic farmers to keep doing it right.

When I had my twins 3 1/2 years ago, I tried going to cloth diapers but I just didn’t get the family support i needed and to tell you the truth, I needed to learn more about how to do it. Now I regret all the money I threw away in disposables and the amount of trash I contributed to.

It wasn’t until a year ago that I discovered washable – reuseable feminine pads. It never dawned on me to check to see if they existed. Well they do and they are awesome. They are soft and comfortable and they will save you money in the long run.

Do yourself a favor and check out willowpads.com. Please, tell your friends about it. I wish someone would have let me know there was an alternate years ago.

Remember, these are a great thing to have around right after childbirth.

By the way, I have no stake in this company and won’t get a thing for referring people. I just wanted to point it out and help out Catherine Bolden who has put so much into helping women, babies and the environment – yes she sells diapers too!
