Who Doesn't Need Diapers? A Giveaway!

Ever since having my first baby I think I've become more and more crunchy.  Except in one great, big area.  I haven't jumped on the cloth diapering bandwagon.  I know there are really great brands out there that make cloth diapering just as easy as disposable diapering but I just haven't made the leap to do the research and make the investment.  Plus, I'm not sure my washer and drier could handle any more work than I'm already giving it.
This month Earth's Best sent me a package of their Chlorine Free Diapers which seems to be a nice compromise between being environmentally conscience while still enjoying the ease of disposable diapers.  Each diaper contains natural absorbent material such as corn and wheat.  Using these renewable resources reduces your impact on the environment.

When I first opened the package the diapers felt a bit cheap to me and I was a little worried they wouldn't do the job like the diapers I was used to.  (We currently use the Up & Up brand from Target.)  But after using Earth's Best diapers for nearly a week I can report that we haven't had a single leak or mess.  And Katherine's little bum is just as cute and soft as it usually is -- no rashes in the least.

Of course the downside to most earth-friendly products is that they are on the spendier side.  If you're a Subscribe & Save member on Amazon you can buy a package of 140 (size 3) for $40.09.  Come December we will have two kids in diapers for at least another year so I'm unsure if I can justify increasing our diaper budget to reduce our carbon footprint.  But for anyone who is less selfish and more green than me, these diapers would be a perfect fit!

A Giveaway!
Earth's Best is offering a package of their Chlorine Free Diapers (you choose the size) for one of my lucky readers.  To enter, simple leave a comment on this post.  I'd love to know how much the environment plays a role when deciding what diapers you use for your children.  Deadline to enter is Monday, October 8 at noon (Central Time).

* Earth's Best has provided me with one package of diapers to review and one to giveaway. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

**This contest is now closed.  Congrats to the winner, commenter #4!**
