I’ve recently started making my own dog food and treats. It’s much healthier for them and it saves a lot of packaging.
Megan, I don’t have in of my own kids that need diapers either! I just think that it’s a great idea. 🙂 My girls are all the ones I raise at the boarding school I minister at. So I don’t get them in the baby stage.

I’m stopping by from Pennywise Platter. Great tips! I do all of them, too (well, except the diapers, but we don’t have any kids yet). I love Azure Standard, too. =)
Amanda, thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Hopping over from the Homemakers By Choice Bloghop…
Great post! I have implemented most of these in our home, as well. I’m actually looking forward to pulling out the cloth diapers again come September! I LOVED using them!
Very nice post! Those tampon stats are rather staggering, huh?! Thanks so much for linking to Eco-Friendly Friday 🙂
These are great ideas! I do most of these things, too, and have written about many of them in my environmental articles. About buying in bulk, I want to mention that some stores allow you to bring your own reusable container, scoop into it from their giant bin, and pay for the exact amount you want. I love this because my family is only 3 people and can’t buy huge packages of everything. It’s also really nice getting to choose what kind of container works best for us to store each type of food.

Hi Katie! I love this article. I do my best to recycle, renew and reuse every day! I also use cloth pads for my moon, and if you want to be even more economical, you can use the dundee type prefolded cloth diapers as moon pads. Thanks so much for sharing all these great earth friendly tips on the hearth and soul hop this week! All the best! alex
These are all such wonderful ideas and tips, Katie…thank you for sharing them w/ the hearth and soul hop this week. Although, I must admit, I’m a bit squeamish about reuseable menstrual products. I’ll go check ’em out though…thank you for the links 😀

I love this! These are all the reason ppl think we are “weird”. We also use family cloth for toilet paper, cloth napkins for everyday, and we don’t buy paper towels.
