recycled bad-ass thing of the day: T-shirt Diapers
Ok, so I have had babies on the brain... probably because I know a couple of people who are expecting one, a couple of people who have had one and because I am dreaming about them. Jiffinner? Totally had a VERY vivid dream that you had a little baby girl. I was holding her and telling her I was her "aunty" (that's what Fairy's son calls me). She was stunning.
So, with all the baby on the brain, it got me to thinking about some baby/Earth friendly stuff. And then, last night, when I was on Twitter, I saw an ad for reusable training pants for toddlers...
I know right? Twitter? WTF?
I have to be honest here... Rob Thomas, as in Matchbox effing Twenty, has a twitter page. That he updates. Himself. Like with random what he's doing every day stuff. I couldn't resist after I found that out. My ONLY option was to begin stalking him.
Anyway, if you twitter, you can search me... katehopeeden. I'm the one who is stalking Rob Thomas.
Back to the diapers though... in case you didn't know, Dooce just had an adorable baby girl who they name Marlo Iris, which is a super cool name... and as I was looking at her "twit-pics", this ad came up for reusable diapers which got my brain wheels a-spinnin' and led to today's post.
On Natural Violet, there is a step by step guide on how to turn a t-shirt into a reusable diaper.

One of the things I truly regret is that I didn't use cloth diapers with my children. My mother used them with all three of us and I really wish I had used them on all three of my girls instead of dumping a gazilliondy disposable diapers into the landfills.

Do you know about something bad-ass and recycled? Shoot me an email, link's on the right.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
