There has been so much going on in my personal life lately that I haven’t been online as much but I couldn’t miss the opportunity to take part of the Cloth Diaper Carnival (VI) hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry! With Kim’s wonderful campaign and our many voices I am confident that we can….and will…
GET CLOTH DIAPERS ON THE ELLEN SHOW!
And you can participate too. All you have to do is write a blog post, link your post below using McLinky, and tweet a link to your post on Twitter using @TheEllenShow #operationflully and #clothdiapers in the tweet. For example: @TheEllenShow you should see how cute my baby looks in #clothdiapers #operationfluffy!
Operation Fluffy actually began last night during our weekly cloth diaper chats on Twitter (which if you don’t chat with us…you are missing a lot of fun!) when hundreds of tweets went out to The Ellen Show. We plan to continue Operation Fluffy until Ellen helps us laugh, dance, conquer! You can read the rest of the plans of Operation Fluffy on the Dirty Diaper Laundryblog…there will be videos, pictures, blogging and so much more! We really want to get Ellen’s attention.
So who’s with me? Do you want to get cloth diapers featured on The Ellen Show? Write your own letter to Ellen telling her why you love cloth diapers and want them on her show.
Here is my letter:
You can call us what you like but here are just a few titles that we are known as; mom, mommy bloggers, wives, sisters, daughters, caregivers, dads (yes there are dads in the revolution too), housekeepers, professionals, stay-at-home parents, working parents, environmentalists and revolutionists (to name just a few)! We have all made a commitment to our children when we decided to use cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers…a commitment to our childrens health, the environment, and our bank accounts.
Did you know that disposable diapers contain toxins and carcinogens like Tributyl-tin (TBT) and Sodium Polyacrylate? These are known to cause cancer, skin irritations, and allergic reactions (including staph infections)? Cloth diapers are much healthier for our babies and cause much fewer diaper rashes than disposable diapers.
Did you know that the average baby uses 6,000-9,000 disposable diapers in the first 3 years of life? At an average of $65 a month that is $2340 over those same 3 years spend on disposable diapers alone. That doesn’t include diaper wipes and diaper cream to cure diaper rashes. Cloth diapers range in price (depending on the type) from $300-1000 for a stash of 24-36 diapers and when your baby is out of diapers you can resell them. Cloth diapers can be reused over and over again saving you a ton of money.
Did you know that it could take anywhere from 250-500 years for disposable diapers to decompose in a landfill? Did you know that disposable diapers use twice as much water as cloth diaper; and that’s mostly in manufacturing. Over 27 billion disposable diapers end up in landfills each year. Cloth diapers are much better for the environment and will reduce our children’s butt-print (carbon footprint) significantly.
I want to see cloth diapers on The Ellen Show because the only way to change a diaper is one baby at a time and if you could help us reach just one more family than Operation Fluffy will be a success.
We are your fans and we look forward to meeting you and showing off our babies adorable fluffy butts. I’m sure you would fall in love with all of them…especially this one…
Much love and and lots of dancing,
The Eco Chic and family
