World Water Day | March 22nd

Join Mom Bloggers for Social Good in celebrating World Water Day on March 22nd. As I watch my 2-year-old run to the sink, pull out her little stool cup in hand and filling up her cup with water I cannot help but think of other little girls and boys and whole families that are without suitable drinking water. According to UNWater.org,

There are 7 billion people to feed on the planet today and another 2 billion are expected to join by 2050. Statistics say that each of us drinks from 2 to 4 litres of water every day, however most of the water we ‘drink’ is embedded in the food we eat: producing 1 kilo of beef for example consumes 15,000 litres of water while 1 kilo of wheat ’drinks up’ 1,500 litres.

When there are people around the world that have to live without food and their water resources are quickly depleting it is hard to look the other way. This is why World Water Day is so important. World Water Day looks to bring attention to how important freshwater is and the management of those freshwater resources.

Help me and others spread the word Water.org has a list of ways you can let others know about World Water Day. You can make a donation of $25 or just simply change your Twitter background or your Facebook timeline cover.

See how water makes a difference by watching the video below of a 13-year-old Ethiopian girl named Atseda:

Dr Seuss’s – The Lorax Project

Who is gDiapers (from website)?

The most eco-friendly diaper available, gDiapers provides parents with a diapering solution that is good for babies, parents and the planet. You can have the flexibility of a disposable diaper with a 100% biodegradable gRefill, or opt for reusability with super soft and trim-fitting gCloth inserts. gDiapers are plastic-free, elemental chlorine free, latex free, and perfume free.

Use a biodegradable gRefill or re-usable gCloth inside our newborn tiny gPants and our cotton little gPants. All materials are breathable, just like sports clothing, so babies are far less likely to get diaper rash. And did we mention they’re cute? Babies can flaunt their eco-friendly diapers in a rainbow of adorable colors. Because green diapers don’t need to be bland.

No landfill required.

50 million diapers get tossed each day and each one takes up to 500 years to biodegrade. Ick. Home compost, toss, or flush the biodegradable gRefill for the smallest footprint on earth. gDiapers break down in 50-150 days.

flush, compost or toss

A totally new way to think about diapers.

All new things can take getting used to. Remember when you learned to separate your recycling? And now it’s second nature.

Learn how to flush the biodegradable gRefills and how to get the perfect gDiaper fit. You can also compost the wet ones or simply toss the soiled refill. It will break down in the landfill a lot faster than the 500 years for a conventional disposable diaper. Or learn more about re-usable gCloth. Go green diapers. Go gDiapers. Breathe easy no matter what.
