World’s First Fully Compostable Diapers

I have always known that if I were going to have children that I would use disposable diapers.  This choice is not based on a lack of interest in the state of the environment or due to me simply being a jerk that wants to wrap my baby up in stifling, landfill clogging plastic.  My choice had been made solely on the understanding that I work, a lot, and that there are only so many hours in a day that I want to spend doing certain things and I would much rather spend my hours enriching my baby’s life and grabbing whatever sleep I can than fussing with things like cloth diapers.

Despite my decision already being made, I still had wished that there was a better alternative to the poop scraping hell of cloth diapers and the environmental evil of disposables, and now there is!  Made from plant-based starches that all break down in around 90 days, Elements Naturals has developed a fully compostable nappy intended for the time strapped, environmentally conscious parents of today.  Click here for more information.

I am a huge fan of seltzer/soda water, but it can get a bit boring sometimes.  Adding delicious fruit nectar, liquors and cordials are a great way to enjoy something a little fizzy and control the amount of sugar you consume in a day.  Click here to head over to Uschi and Kay, a wedding ideas site full of fun favors like this one and much more, to check out the recipe for this golden delight and a cucumber mint cordial plus a few ideas on how to serve them.
