OPEN UNTIL JULY 18
Well it sure has been a while since I've hosted a giveaway but I am loving this one. First off a mom of two can't turn down free diapers! But the fact that these diapers go right along with the eco-kick I try to stay on makes it even better.
We try to be a relatively eco-friendly fam, I am pretty serious about eating healthy, trying to buy organic when I can, I'm an avid gardener, I make my kids baby food... we're a bit granola-y sometimes. But we could use a little work on the whole recycling front by using more ecoconcious products. And these diapers do just that.
From them- What Seventh Generation leaves out is just as important as what they put in. Free & Clear diapers do not include chlorine processing, fragrances, latex and petroleum based lotions. In an effort to contribute less overall landfill waste and continue to ensure a premium standard of absorbency, the new Free & Clear diapers have been redesigned with a lighter-weight core. With processed chlorine-free wood pulp in Free & Clear diapers, Seventh Generation also makes certain that no chlorine is released into the environment during the totally chlorine-free (TCF) whitening process of the diapers and training pants.
Seventh Generation has also reduced the size of the diapers’ plastic packaging, meaning that each pack now contributes even less overall landfill waste than before. In fact, Seventh Generation Free & Clear diaper packaging can now be recycled at local supermarkets where plastic bag recycling collection boxes are available.
Now I'm pretty picky about our diapers, we are a full fledged Pampers family, I make it no secret that I HATE Huggies, I hate their fit, the tabs, etc. This is one of the few products that we are extremely brand loyal to. But if I were to switch or incorporate any other diaper into our use it would be one that has such a great impact on the environment. As for the Free & Clear diapers, I will say that they look pretty awful, they're plain, no images, kind of look like a brown paper towel but really who cares if your kids undergarments have Elmo on them right... The only other thing I dont like are the tabs, they are exactly like Huggies, huge flimsy tabs. Other than that I LOVE that they have NO smell, that is the one thing I despise about our Pampers, the awful "perfumey" smell. That alone counts for a lot in my book. And they worked just fine, no leaks!
