At a press conference for Live Earth last Saturday, Dave Matthews revealed his newfound way to help go green – he’s using cloth diapers instead of disposable ones for his newborn son, August Oliver. People Magazine reports Matthews as saying, “We use cloth diapers for our new baby because I think diapers might be the No. 3 piece of garbage [in terms of environmental damage].”
Matthews attributes the availability of a diaper service as a big help. For those who are not so lucky, gdiapers may be the way to go. I’ve heard from a few mom friends that gdiapers are easy to use, affordable, and come in awesome colors and patterns. A completely biodegradable insert goes inside breathable ‘little g pants’. When it’s time to change the insert, just flush and repeat. The diapers are plastic free and the inserts can even be composted! Bonus!
