Every round of (hand-built!) diapers I receive for review gets better and better. But nonetheless, we’ve still got some things to work out...and to be honest this is the greatest test of my patience I’ve ever experienced. I’m not sure I would have publicly shared Earthly so early had I known how long it takes to effectively reinvent the wheel (we are literally changing almost ever material typically used in diapers). But if I hadn’t shared, I would have missed out on all of the amazing support, from you, that reminds me WHY cleaner diapers matter so much. Forever grateful to be a part of this company, and to have you here to share it with. 😘

(part one) 🌱 in the spirit of keepin’ it real, i want to share some of the internal struggles i have when i’m shopping at the grocery store these days. . . i have SO MANY thoughts about consuming animal products 😣 but i’ll save that for another time. i will say that while i’m not vegan or vegetarian, i do have strong feelings/rules about when i will consume animal products. for example, small family farms are abundant where i live (v. lucky) and i believe in supporting my local economy. i strongly prefer to buy animal products as locally as possible, so usually that means i get them from a nearby farm or a neighbor. . BUT 🤷🏼‍♀️ sometimes for various reasons, i can’t. now, i think in most cases i would be perfectly fine just giving up animal products until i can get back to my usual local supplier, but other people in my house don’t feel as strongly and i can’t force my way of life on other adults. 😅 such is life. so on those occasions where i find myself browsing things like eggs at the grocery store, i start to struggle with how i’m supposed to make “the best choice”. . part of my journey to reduce my waste has made me a much more conscious consumer over all, so i now find myself weighing several concerns—the biggest one is usually that i have a budget to stick to with wasteful packing, animal welfare, health concerns and other moral/ethical things looming large in the background. the reality is that there is no perfect choice that checks off all my boxes, so i have to make concessions. this happens a lot.

an ethical consumers guide to holiday gifting: - give memories: gifts for experiences are not only meaningful, but they also tend to be low waste. museum passes, a zoo membership, a trip to the aquarium, movie tickets, or any kind of fun excursion would make a great gift! - give your time: got any skills you can share? give the gift of your time and expertise! volunteer to make yourself available to help a friend with their upcoming move or babysit a friend’s kids for free so they can enjoy a night out. - upcycle: refinish something to give it a fresh update or repurpose something you already have. for my son’s 2nd birthday i took a wood stool from my childhood desk and turned it into a play kitchen by attaching a small shelf i got from craigslist and a wire basket underneath to hold food. voila! - secondhand: rather than endlessly wander a crowded mall, why not seek out some small antique shops or local thrift stores and see what you find? prefer to shop online? there’s always ebay! - make: i’m a crafty-creative-maker type of a person so this is my preferred method of gifting lately. there’s something about a handmade gift that just sort of reminds me what gifting is all about-the time, effort and skill put into something made just for you is just really really nice. pinterest is a great source of craft inspiration but if you’re not crafty, there’s always cookies! - buy ethically: if you do choose to buy new, shoot for something that is ethically sourced, organic, or supports some cause/mission that speaks to what you (and/or the recipient) value. maybe buy something from a local artisan in town to support small business. or gift certificate to a vegan restaurant. last but not least, you can always buy something new that doesn’t cross off any of the boxes—and that’s ok too! editing this to say that the most sustainable gift is one that someone actually wants, even if it’s not zerowaste or plastic free. thanks for the reminder @gippslandunwrapped

there is a lot of holiday crafting and decorating going on over here lately. i made these garlands primarily out of things i had around my house—wood beads, raffia, and scrap fabric cut into strips. they hardly take any effort! they keep my hands busy (ie:away from my phone) while i watch tv or sit by the fire. i’ll definitely continue to make these all season long. ✨🎄 #zerowastechristmas #zerowastethanksgiving #goingzerowaste #lowimpactmovement #withlessplastic #journeytozerowaste #makesmthng #zerowasteliving #ecoconsciousconsumer #buynothingnew #handmadechristmas #craftivism

RECYCLING ♻️: This morning we enjoyed a smoothie from a local shop on a whim—no reusable cup on hand. The empty cup had a juicy residue, and as I was rinsing I realized that I don’t *really* know the proper way to recycle at home. What’s accepted curbside? Do I have to rinse? Is that a waste of water? What if it was an already recycled plastic, can it be recycled again? A lot of these answers change depending on location which makes it even more confusing! As a company, Earthly is hyper focused on purity, sustainability, and minimizing waste. As a family we do the same, but it’s a very different process at home, and Googling isn’t proving helpful. Does anyone have a good resource for finding local recycling guidelines?

Crazy right?! The lining of traditional diapers is made with plastic fibers. It seems unfair to think that we, as parents, can work so hard to surround baby with purity through things like natural mattresses, organic clothing and glass bottles, but have no option for a truly clean disposable diaper. That’s why Earthly exists. We exist to serve you, to fill that gap and change the options in favor of your baby and the earth they’ll grow up on. This road may be a long one, but we think it’s well worth it ❤️💗

Let’s talk about being biodegradable. At Earthly, we work hard to use materials and create products that are biodegradable—but what does that really mean? It’s important to know that biodegradable materials are only able to break down quickly in specific environments, like compost facilities. They need a balance of air and bacteria to disintegrate. When thrown into a traditional dump they are surrounded by trash and the process is suffocated, unable to break down at a fast pace. Does that mean it’s a (literally) waste? Not entirely! Using biodegradable materials (usually) means less waste through the entire building process, less resources used and more natural and sustainable materials. It also means that when they do break down, even if it’s more slowly, they will be less toxic to the earth (and us!). And, of course, if you’re willing to compost or locate a local compost facility it’s a win-win-WIN! ❤️

Obvious, right? Not so fast...have you ever wondered what the wipe itself is made of? In most cases it’s an engineered plastic just like diapers (polypropylene or polyethylene) but at Earthly we’re going plastic-free, making our wipes from 100% clean cotton! Our wipe blend is made up of a local unbleached cotton and reclaimed virgin cotton scrap from the clothing industry. Making a purer, less wasteful wipe!

sweet sweet sweet sweet sweet . . i got a chance to hit up the famous #rochesterpublicmarket this weekend after not having been there in years. wow.. SO. MANY. VENDORS. it is absolutely gargantuan. i saw a lot of the same kinds of things that my local farmers market @phoenixvillefarmersmarket offers but in MASS quantities. a few cool things i noticed that my market lacks: a massive “bulk” vendor where they sold pantry/shelf stable items like nuts, grains, seeds and spices (i put bulk in quotes b/c it was all pre-packaged in plastic, not the self-serve type of bulk unfortunately), UNPACKAGED BULK PASTA (!!!), and lots of unpackaged meat and fish. they had almost everything- it was overwhelming! 🤩 . it’s interesting to notice if there are any differences in packaging options when i travel. #singleuseplastic and unnecessary #plasticpackaging on food are everywhere and it feels so automatic to accept it when it’s given to you. even a largely unpackaged food market like the one in rochester will sneak you some well-intended but unnecessary plastic. i was offered a free pair of those cheap marketing/promotional sunglasses almost as soon as i walked in. most people i saw at the market brought their own large tote bags, but still accepted the plastic bags instinctively given to them by the vendor. this was me, too, up until a few months ago, so no judgement! i’m still in the “observation” phase of my life goal to reduce my waste. i’m walking through life and noticing where all my trash comes from, then thinking about what i can do differently to avoid it. one place to start is to simply and politely decline plastic when it’s offered to you. . #lesspackagingplease #zerowastejourney #makelesstrash #mindfulconsumerism #circulareconomy #zerowastecommunity #yayforearth #lowimpactmovement #withlessplastic #zerowastecollective #lifewithoutplastic #reducewhatyouproduce #planetorplastic #ecoconsciousconsumer #wastenotcollective

Castile soap is a natural, oil-based soap that can be used to clean everything from laundry to your face, in different concentrations. It was traditionally made with an olive oil base—but today it’s usually made primarily with coconut oil. You’ll find just a tad of this well-working natural oil in our upcoming wipes! Keeping little buns clean, naturally!

Did you know that the most common material in both diapers and wipes is plastic? Little plastic pellets are pulled into fibers and engineered into fabrics. This process uses tons of resources and the result is more plastic around baby and the earth. Using cotton cuts WAY down on resources. It’s natural, sustainable, and easy to work with since it’s already a fiber. Not to mention it’s completely biodegradable and won’t live forever! Cotton has gotten a bit of a bad wrap in the past due to its overuse of pesticides, BUT the cotton industry heard the issues and has dramatically lowered the use of chemicals on their crops. Plus, we choose our farmers based on how much they care about the cleanliness and purity of their cotton. Fun fact: Organic cotton grown in the United States uses NO pesticides at all (not even organic approved—yes, those are a thing!) moral of the post, we love cotton around here. 😉❤️

This tricky little ingredient can be found in everything from soap to diapers (and beyond!). Although some products labeled with “fragrance” *can* be truly natural (ie: essential oil based), the VAST majority are toxic cocktails of synthetic scents. If you’re curious about the origin of a scent, the best option is to call the company and ask! 👌🏼
