  1. How we raise a green baby?

    I wrote an article for Granville online on the cost of going green, and it wasn't until I researched this topic that I realized we were already en route.

    First, yes we use cloth diapers and wash clothes instead of wipes. I breastfeed and make my own baby food. We live in a condo in downtown Vancouver so we walk almost everywhere we go. In fact, up until a month ago we didn't have a car.
    And since we live in a small space, we recycle and reuse toys, gear etc with a group of friends. We have a good circuit going so we are all constantly swapping goods which reduces the amount of "stuff" and space. The biggest "aha" I had was to spend more on less. So we are going with that.
    Hoping to win the tix, coming over to see the show and looking forward to it! I am a freelance writer and new mama always looking for inspiration.
    Have a great weekend at the show.

  2. We're doing a few things:
    - avid recycling, and have done for years
    - cloth diapering two kids
    - and just generally trying to save money, which means less purchases and less waste.

    Things that are on the agenda for the immediate future:
    - starting to compost, finally. I'm hoping to see my weekly garbage output go down to almost nothing!
    - making my own laundry soap... hopefully it gets my diapers really clean!!
