I'm sure we all had certain circumstances that made us start making green choices. What were your reasons?

    My reasons started with diapering and money saving! We were getting ready to have an other baby and that would put us with 3 kids in diapers! Eeek! So I jumped into cloth diaper it's been a steady process since of changing the ways we do things, I'll admit that a lot of it is for the purpose of saving money but I wouldn't change back even if I had money

    Money, pure and simple. The rest is just a happy by product.

    I think this is funny because you thought I was some sort of freaky hippy when I started cloth and look at you now! I can call you a freaky hippy LMAO.

    I also started with cloth diapers then it progressed to cloth wipes, mama cloth and trying to cut down on paper products. I have aways been somewhat green trying to reuse whatever I can but the diapering really opened my eyes to other things I could be doing also.

    I think it started when I had my baby. I wanted our home to be clean and safe without the chemical clean smell. I started buying method products before but wasn't sure of how safe it was so I looked into natural cleaners and then I learned more things I could do.

    This is exactly when I started.  I started thinking about things in terms of "I have another life to be reponsible for" and then started realizing how many chemicals are in everything.

    Well, saving money because we barely make it. (we make minimum wage but still manage to pay for everything by being wise with our money) influenced cloth diapers, and somewhat of breastmilk (although, mostly I breastfeed my son because of the incredible health benifits and the immunity properties and how it adjusts to what he needs), recycling and taking care of the enviroment because my husband's logic behind it makes sense to me. He strongly supports taking care of the enviroment because God would want us to and we are responsible for taking care of what He gave us.

    Ditto!! Lol. And reducing waste. That's why we started cloth diapering.
