I'm giddy! What a great idea!!! You guys are so smart! I sent one too! What did y'all write? Here's what I wrote:
How to raise an eco-friendly family in a disposable world.
From birth to adult, little things you can change about your daily life that will help your children and family learn to respect the planet that we all share.
Buy organic whenever possible but especially the following products because the conventionally grown versions are particularly prone to heavy pestacide contamination:
Corn – most are genetically modified
Grapes (and raisins)
Apples and apple juice
Dairy products (organic dairy cows get lots of fresh air, and are not given growth hormones or antibiotics) plus you can taste the difference – yum!
Organic cotton – cotton is doused with chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides – of all crops, the most chemicals per acre are used on cotton. Cotton seed oil is use in many packaged prepared foods!
Cloth diapers (the wonderful underground world of cloth diapering – could probably make a good show all by it’s self!) Very important – diaper your baby in cloth! Cloth diapers are soooo much easier than they used to be. I promise you that you will be amazed. So many moms out there think cloth diapers are all about pins, plastic pants and dunking. If it were REALLY that way, I wouldn’t do it either! But cloth is easy, fun, and fashionable. Did you know some Hollywood stars are closet cloth diaper-ers! Here are a few sites with info:oops!

Here are some cute momma made diapers: (most companies that sell cloth diapers are momma run and a lot are home based businesses)http://www.mylittletribe.com/ccp5/me...pinkbikini.jpghttp://www.sosdiapers.com/happycustomers.html
There’s so much more, but that’s about all that I have room for. Thanks for reading!
ETA: oops oops oops is my favorite Recipe for “Sugar Honey Iced Tea” accidently put my url in the post - sorry ladies! (realized what I did as I was pulling diapes out of the dryer - wouldn't ya know!)
