An Invalid answering Inquiries


So, the "little g" diapers? Good. They, of course take a little more effort, but everyone would be using them if they didn't. But the extra effort is minimal. Just rip, swish, flush, and replace and you've got a swanky swaddled little environmentalist. Avery is 5 months old and I got the medium-sized starter kit (two cute covers with linings, one extra lining, a swish stick, and a package of biodegradable inserts). I think the kit was around $26. I haven't figured the cost ratio to disposables, but once you start swishing, you won't be able to stop!
teaser: the above photo is a sneak peak of some spooky decor Craig and I are in the process of procuring. but, i have been heavily "under the weather" today and the picture is not too far from reality (read, chills and body aches and lots of fluids).

Did you know that, in the end, g diapers use up more energy (aka natural resources) than regular old disposables? Sad but true. You see, the part you flush has to be seperated out at the sewage treatment plant and then dried and THEN sent to the dump, so it ends up in the dump anyway. AND g diapers is not as compostable as the company claims. I guess you can take refuge in the fact that even though they are not really "green" yours are still orange and cuter than regular diapers.

I don't believe anon. They are compostable and since they have no plastic parts as do regular disposables (which supposedly take 500 years to decompose) they are much better than pampers, etc.
PS I love your new peaked look.

Why is it that when anyone has anything negative to say, they won't leave their name (cowards)? I don't believe anon, either. Even if you just throw them (the g diapers) away, they go the way of the earth so much sooner than regular diapers that they are better for the environment. (decomposing in our life time instead of that of our great-great-great grandchildren.)

I belive you Anon.

How about doing our part in other ways: mass transit--car pooling, push mower, moderate temperature control, CFL lighting, smaller homes, native planting, etc.

Lets not waste purposefully, if we can save Mother Earth we should try.
Maybe these diapers are our econ-friendly friends first attempts.

I say, get your biked tuned up also and go for it!

Will people really be here in 500 years?

I shall sign anon too.

Yikes Jordan! At least your doing something and I'm sure you do a lot more than diapers. I use Seventh Generation diapers and I know they aren't the most eco-friendly things but at least we try, right?

I am the first cowardly (thanks, Katy) Anon--I would actually sign my name (Amy Jones), but I am living in a foreign country and some of the blogger features are in a language that I don't understand.
I just wanted you be a more aware consumer. Why not use cloth diapers and wash them if you are trying to be ecologically aware? I think g diapers are trendy and spendy--an example of what celebrities who are half-heartedly trying to set a good earthy example would use.
I respect your desires to preserve the planet--I just don't think that you are well-informed.

PS--I am not a regular reader of your blog--I just stumbled on it during some free time because it was linked to a friend's blog. I thought it was a (male) Jordan that I knew at BYU-Hawaii.
I usually don't leave comments on strangers blogs, and I am sorry if I riled everyone up!
