Oh! Baby Buy Product Contest

I Love a good contest, , the chance to get something simply for giving someone my name and or a bit of info about me and my life. Easy Peasy! This contest is even better! Its all Green, Organic or Earthy Friendly products. So cool. I entered and here is my entry:

1. When I got pregnant with my 14 month old son I realized how much more Earth Friendly I needed to be. I was using natural and
non-toxic cleaners because I felt the "regular" ones would be too harmful for my growing fetus. Then it dawned on me that I couldn't worry about it pregnant and then once he was born go back to using horrible toxic chemicals. So I started phasing them out completely. I have completely switched to biodegradable laundry, dish, counter and general cleaners. I also switched to natural organic, biodegradable shampoo's and baby care products (started with those with Grayson). I also discovered G diapers when I was pregnant and started using those and cloth diapers shortly after his birth. I love G diapers! I also make my own cloth diapers ( ) I use cloth bags when I go shopping. I try to shop and buy local products and support local farms- we are getting a coop box this spring as well as go to the farmers market weekly. We recycle as much as we possibly can- our area has a curb side large bin that everything goes in so that makes it easier- if it has a number or seems recyclable I recycle it. We switch most of our light bulbs to energy conserving. Basically we try to use minimize our impact on the earth in as many ways as possible. I have high hopes for this year to be able to do even more, with some Earth Day Resolutions. :) (Check out the pictures of the G diapers I embroidered!)
2. In case you haven't already figured it out, my favorite product featured is the G diapers! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I would love to try the Obli organic onsie, I love this print. I have been having a mild obsession with this kind of
print for the last year or so. I would also love to get some Think Baby Sippy cups, I am slowly trying to phase out all the "bad plastic" its slow since my hubby is not as supportive as I would like. And lastly, for my next baby I would LOVE to have the Blessed nest because I had a really hard time trying to cosleep and this seems like a lifesaver!
