December is the best time to analyze the year, which is almost gone and to make for the new year. And why not make green resolution for the next year? I have started thinking about mine and tried to recall what I have done the previous years. Tree planting events were probably the major green projects. Here I would like to share my experience on them and provide a Tree Planting Event Guide if you want to make tree planting one of your green resolutions for next year.
My husband and I have a tradition of organizing major tree planting during the month of April around the Earth Days for the last 4 years. We loved this activity so much the first time that it was hard to stop us the following year.

I was looking for this picture on-line and found this great post written by a like-minded mom (credits at the end). Here you will find some interesting fact on disposable vs cloth diapers.
In 1988, over 18 billion diapers were sold and consumed in the United States that year.
Based on our calculations (listed below under “Cost: National Costs”), we estimate that 27.4 billion disposable diapers are consumed every year in the U.S.
The instructions on a disposable diaper package advice that all fecal matter should be deposited in the toilet before discarding, yet less than one half of one percent of all waste from single-use diapers goes into the sewage system.
I wrote this article when my son was seven months.
It is amusing to think that a year ago I was expecting a baby and worrying about the necessity of using disposable diapers, which creates such a burden to the environment and feels so unnatural. And here I am today, using on average one per week for my seven month old son. And we could of course forget about them at all but it’s pretty cold here in January and I use disposable diapers for outdoor for my peace of mind. But a year ago I have just discovered the possibility of going diaper free.
