It seems like just yesterday I was pregnant with baby Vasco and wondering what in the world zero waste living would look like with a little one. Would I have the time to cook waste free meals from scratch? What about diapers? How do I get started with cloth diapering? What about all the baby “stuff”? Would I be able to find it all secondhand? What do zero waste babies eat?!
Vasco is now a year and a half old, and I have learned SO much about parenting. I’ve shared some of my zero waste mom adventures on my blog that I really hope you’ve enjoyed reading. Along the way, I’ve also discovered quite a few other zero waste mom bloggers that share some great wisdom about trying to raise children while also living sustainably. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite zero waste mom bloggers to share with you here!
