cloth vs disposable diapers
being an aspiring environmentalist (well, try to recycle as much at least) I'm drawn to articles written in Parents magazine where they have discussion over cloth diapers.
These are unlike the cloth diapers our parents used to put on us, complete with safety pin and plastic covers.
Cloth diapers are so cute and you'll help saving the environment as well :)
