Our December/January newsletter has finally arrived…here is the link for you to find out what we are sharing with our students:
Our featured business this month is Shannon’s Cloth & More. I have been meaning to write a post about the toxins in conventional diaper wipes…and I will as soon as edit the pictures that go along with the post. In the meantime, HERE is a list of ingredients against which you can check the products you are looking at using.
After we started our journey to green our environment, I came to the realization that our conventional wipes were no longer welcome as we move towards as toxin-free a home as we can manage. Nothing I looked at was free of all of these chemicals. Around the same time, I heard about Shannon’s Cloth and More.
HERE is an eye-opening article about the little thought of ingredients in conventional wipes – preservatives that are added to the product to minimize bacteria in a perpetually moist environment. Children are breaking out in rashes due to an allergic reaction in supposedly harmless ingredients.
I encourage you to read the article about the rashes that children are having as a reaction to the ingredients in conventional wipes, and to research reusable alternatives like the products that Shannon provides.
Although I was hesitant about it, and couldn’t imagine convenience and reusable in the same sentence, we started using them over the summer. We have not looked back, and I can barely bring myself to buy the conventional product anymore.. It was a much easier transition than I anticipated. We got some Baby Bits to make our own cleansing solution plus spray bottles from GoGo Natural, started using our wipes from Shannon’s Cloth, and just started rinsing and washing our wipes as we do with our wraps. EASY!
Plus – we are supporting a small business owner, saving money since we are not buying a product that we throw away after one use, keeping trash out of the landfill, as well as keeping icky chemicals away from our Sweet Pea’s skin. Win. Win. Win.
Do you have a green product that you like to use in your Sweet Pea’s nursery?
