My children have been bringing home all kinds of recycling tips from school – but I’m not always convinced they’ve got the info 100% correctly. Last week I found a pile of trash on the side table, a used juice pouch, some cardboard and other items. When I went to throw them in the bin my son “Captain Hook” said “No, I’m recycling those.” I told him he wasn’t that they were trash and couldn’t be collected with the recycling. He said that he personally was going to recycle them into something useful, like a boat…. Hmm… OK not exactly sure that’s possible but the spirit is there.
Join me this week on #MumsNight to learn and share green and eco tips for raising babies and toddlers. From keeping your carbon footprint small, to effectively re-using and recycling. We’ll also be discussing some of the best eco products.
To help us learn even more about green baby products and eco raising eco children, gNappies has generously donated 2 tickets to The Baby Show this weekend at Earl’s Court in London. The 2 tickets will go to 1 winner. You can attend any one day of the three days of the show. (Giveaway now closed – thanks again if you entered)
The gNappy (gnappies.co.uk) is the brainchild of Kim Graham-Nye – listed as one of Forbes magazine’s 10 most powerful women entrepreneurs – and is now available in Britain. Most of the environmental attributes of the gNappy are “upstream” – it is made from microfibres and hemp fleece, which removes the three-quarters of a cup of oil it takes to make a conventional disposable. But wet inserts can also be home composted. Graham-Nye says the average time they take to break down is 55 days (less than a banana skin). Many products claim to be biodegradable; with gNappy this has been independently certified. via the Guardian
