My name is Jane and I’m a green, cloth diapering Mom. I have four spunky children.
Like all new mothers, my first pregnancy got me thinking about my role as a parent. I wanted to make decisions that were natural and healthy for her and had a limited impact on the environment.
I am dedicated to helping mamas discover how easy cloth diapering and natural parenting can be! I believe in mindful parenting, green living and cloth diaper advocacy.
Our family is a huge advocate for living green, and we feel it’s an even more important lifestyle choice now that we have children. We use only cloth diapers, love to grow vegetables in our garden, make our own baby food, shop locally, and buy second hand or re-use products to minimize our contribution to the landfill. Initially many of our friends and family were skeptical about cloth diapers and natural parenting. However, our experience has shown how fun and easy it can be, even when using cloth diapers.
ClothDiaperTales.com is a reflection of our passion for sustainability, and a desire to share our experience with those who want to live green while raising a family. My background as a social worker and working with adoptive families has helped me to appreciate the power families have to make a positive impact on the world. Each of your personal choices makes a difference, and you can start by teaching your child about sustainable living at a young age.
Our goal at ClothDiaperTales.com is to provide families with information and support, offer a way to connect with like-minded parents, and serve as a resource for fun, affordable, top quality green products for kids. Most importantly, we want to educate people about the cost savings, positive environmental impact and health benefits of using cloth diapers.
In our home, we are dedicated to using products in alignment with our clean living beliefs. That means all the items we recommend on our site are tested right here in our home first. Whenever possible we try to use sustainable products (hemp, bamboo, organic cotton, etc.) that use low impact dyes.
We take care to source as many items as possible from small, independent manufacturers and companies that share our beliefs and dedication to fair trade values. One of our personal passions is supporting local companies run by Mom’s or families with similar green values, and selling items that educate or curb environmental impact.
It’s important for you to feel confident your money is going to support companies and earth-friendly products that benefit and fairly compensate workers around the world, and we are here to make that easy and fun.
My goal is to provide you with the best possible information and to let you know how much I appreciate you! I am well aware you have many choices for information online and I’m grateful you chose to connect with me.
If you have any questions about ANYTHING (baby colic, new cloth diapers, detergents to use, etc) please let me know. I would love to help if I can. I am excited to share my experiences with cloth diapering with you.
Cloth Diapering is right for my family, however, I realize that it may not be right for everyone. I support families regardless of what method they use, period! No judgment – ever! If you want to use cloth diapers great. If you decide that it’s not right for you, that’s great too…. I’m here for you.
I am lucky to be a mom, entrepreneur, and blogger! I love spending my days with my four beautiful kiddos. I embrace every day God grants me with my beautiful family.
I ♥ learning new sewing techniques, shopping with my sisters, the smell of my diapers after they air dry, and doing crafts with my kids.
I am the owner of this site and I take pride in everything I do here at Cloth Diaper Tales. I love sharing my cloth diaper experiences and reading about yours also!
I live on a small farm and spend my time rescuing all sorts of animals, stockpiling my pantry with the use of coupons and canning, using natural alternatives and more importantly, cloth diapering our precious baby!
