Wordless: Prayer Flags

One of the reasons we chose to cloth diaper and practice elimination communication was to reduce our environmental impact. Every time the prefolds are hanging in the sun, I think of them as my own personal prayer flags for the Earth.

How about your family? What did you decide was best for your beliefs? Cloth, disposables, ec or a combination? I’d love to hear from you.

  1. What a lovely idea. 🙂

    We use cloth (occasionally disposable when I suck at keeping up with laundry).

    Also, I admittedly scorned the idea of EC when I first heard of it (a bad habit I have :p) but have started to become more interested and plan on researching it more – you’ve been one of the people who have made me a lot more open to trying it! 😀

  2. What a great way to look at it! I never would have, but I can totally see it now. To have each diaper be a gift to the world is such a powerful idea, and one that might make the next poopy needing dealt with a little easier!

  3. I love the picture/thought of CDs as prayer flags 🙂 We used prefolds too. Loved them! Now they’ve gone on to some friends that are due with their first little one 🙂 (Can’t do that with disposables! 😉 )

  4. We use cloth all day, but disposables at night. My little guy is such an amazingly heavy wetter, we just couldn’t find a reasonable nightime solution in cloth. It is a compromise certainly, but one we can all live (and sleep) with.

  5. As I’ve discussed at length elsewhere, I use a combination of cloth and ‘sposies. It’s a compromise between my “green” impulses and my limited spoons.

    I’d also like to start using mama cloth, but again, I’m not pushing the issue due to limited resources.

  6. I wish we were allowed to have a clothes line. Our diapers would totally be our prayer flags, too!

    We CD because I can’t fathom spending so much money on something that is used once and then left in a landfill for our grandkids 30x removed. Our future and our Earth deserves better.

  7. We use cloth diapers.
    We also use family cloth and the ladies of the house use cloth pads as well. I am slowly but surly trying to eliminate all disposables in our home. We are nearly there. : )

    For me the decision was twofold. We are fortunate enough to live in an area with a cheap water supply and a yard large enough to line dry, even a large enough porch that I have lines stretched across the back porch post for line drying in bad weather. So it was defently a wise financial decision. Also though my husband and I try to be mindful of the Christian belief that we are to be good stewards of the land. Neither of us can see how trashing it up with semi-permanent monuments to our children’s every bowel movement could be considered being a good steward. : /
    If we lived in a desert area then we would have went with biodegradable diapers instead though.

    Sadly I dont know a lot of fellow Christians that share our beliefs in being a good steward to the land which was given to us. But we are out there. : )
