Are you *buying* trash?

We produce so much trash but I try to follow those 3 annoying R's, right? Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Then I heard or read something somewhere about the trash we produce. It dawned on me about the TRASH I actually pay $$$ for & BUY! Disposable *anything* is simply buying TRASH!

Those disposable wipes? Disposable baby wipes. Paper plates. Disposable diapers...the list can go on & on. These are purchases where the product is specifically made to throw in the TRASH!

I can understand for extreme cases of necessary sanitation. For the everyday, average healthy person, some vinegar & a washcloth can suffice for a disinfectant. Along w/ my cloth diaper use, I can use a wash cloth for cleaning baby & simply toss in the diaper bucket. Don't get me started on how simple it really is to use cloth diapers either!

Once you see it as buying trash, it may change your perspective on what you are willing to spend your $$$ on, don't you think?
