7 Small Steps Leave Big Impact To Mankind | What you can do & use towards saving the environment.

  1. Breastfeeding - Each cow eats a lot of grass. To produce enough grass,mllions of acres of land are required. In the search for land, forests are cut and burnt destroy the soil and plants, and the animals lose their home. In making infant formula, enormous amount of energy is wasted through packaging,  paper, plastic and metals create more waste. And, in transporting, millions of gallons of fuel are consumed means that dirt, smoke and other pollutants are expelled into the air.
  2.  Cloth Diapering - One baby can produce up to 2 tons of landfill waste using disposable diapers and disposable diapers have little to no recycling potential and can take up to 500 years to decompose.
  3. Babywearing – Producing a babywearing gear can be done at home like wrap and ring sling and all it need is some piece of clothing and safety ring or buckle. It reduce energy consumption and space saving comparing to the production of stroller.
  4. Cloth Sanitary Pad -  It does not contribute to landfill as they are reusable, do not come in or contain plastic packaging. When cloth pad wears out (after years of use), those made from natural materials can be composted whereas disposable sanitary napkins made from synthetic materials cannot be recycled or composted.
  5. Cloth Wipes – You can use it as many as you need to get baby fresh & clean without feeling guilty about wasting wipes. It doesn't have any alcohol or harsh chemicals in them like disposables wipes do.  It can replace tissue & toilet paper too.
  6. Reusable shopping bag – Plastic bags are made from petroleum products and natural gas, and it utilize non-renewable resources, ultimately helping to drive up fuel prices! Plastic bags cause over 100,000 sea turtle & other marine animal deaths every year when animals mistake them for food. Over a lifetime, use of reusable bags by just one person, would save over 22,000 plastics bags.
  7. Go organic & pick safer products – Read the fine prints on the labels, cut back on the fragrance to avoid allergic reactions and try to purchase organic products that supports organic farming, which is better for the environment.
