An article this week on pollution caused by the global shipping industry left me thinking, yet again, about buying local.
The group behind the report, the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), also said the shipping industry emits more of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide than many industrialized nations.
Serious sustainability considers carbon emissions at every step along the way. This includes shipping, particularly long-distance shipping.
Those looking to green their lives should consider taking the carbon out of the equation when they buy cloth diapers. Whether you are considering a 100-mile diaper stash or any other way to buy local cloth diapers, buying local is a great way to build community.
Am I asking you not to buy diapers from us? Of course I’m not!
I would love to sell you a great organic cotton cloth diaper, and I have sent diapers around the world. I also know that there are local cloth diaper manufacturers in every country where I send diapers.
I am suggesting that if you consider carbon emissions as part of your overall footprint on the earth, you may want to choose to buy cloth diapers manufactured near you.
Get to know your local cloth diapermaker. This is just one connection in your local web.
