These resources are listed in no particular order, other than how I thought of them.

  • EcoFrugalLife– “Eco-frugal living isn’t just a fad, it’s a growing necessity for millions of people worldwide. Saving the green in your wallet, and the green outside your window really can, and should go hand in hand.”

Cloth Diapering Resources

NOTE: There are many, MANY great cloth diaper retailers out there. I’ve used several and haven’t had any problems with any of them. I also spotlight many in my daily Green Baby Deals.  I chose to highlight two here, simply because they offer options that involve recycling materials to make diapers and/or covers. This is not meant to be an end-all, be-all list.

  • – retailer that sells upcycled t-shirt one-size fitted diapers
  • Wallypop – Iowan WAHM that sells upcycled t-shirt fitted diapers and wool covers.
  • DiaperPin – Read reviews of diapers, covers, and retailers
  • Diaper Swappers – great FSOT forum, as well as forums to talk over with other CDing parents
  • Traveling with Cloth Diapers (Thanks, RDA!)
  • Real Cloth Diaper Association – “a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, provides support and education to parents all across North America for the use of simple, reusable cloth diapers.”

What Can I Do With This?

  • RecycledCrafts – How to upcycle everyday items into cool stuff!
  • MyRecycled Bags – blogger who upcycles materials in her crochet projects. FREE patterns.
