Day 1 of the Flats & Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry

 Have you heard of the Flats & Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry?

"This event aims to bring awareness and educate cloth diapering families and beyond about the benefits and feasibility of using flat cloth diapers, the most basic of all diapers, and handwashing. Why? Because there are families who struggle everyday with diaper need. There are no federal or state funded assistance programs to help families buy diapers. This can result in babies being left in diapers too long or families reusing disposable diapers; both options pose serious health risks for the baby. My goal has always been to prove that, when necessary, a small number of flat cloth diapers, covers, and a simple bucket washer or tub can be all a family needs to provide clean and sanitary diapers."

--Kim Rosas of Dirty Diaper Laundry

This is my second time participating in the Flats Challenge. I choose to participate because I whole-heartedly believe that cloth diapering is the best choice for baby, environment & budget. I wish I had known that cloth diapering was a doable thing with babies #1 & #2. I wasted so much money & polluted the Earth so much because I didn't know washing was possible in a washer- & dryer-less apartment situation. I want people to know it is possible to cloth diaper on a tight budget & without modern washing machines.
