When my daughter was a baby I used cloth diapers. I was proud of this, and have to admit it made me feel like a good mom AND a good person. The cloth diapers were ready to go for baby #2 and I was looking forward to using them again to save the world.
Then I found this website and put them away again. My state has had water restrictions since last summer, so it's actually better for the environment for us to use disposables. This is so counterintuitive!
Guess what else? Plastic bags are better than paper bags. More amazingly, disposable cups can be better than the kind you wash and gas cars can be responsible for less CO2 emissions than electric cars.
How can we know for sure what's best for the Earth? It seems like Green living is becoming more and more of a Grey area.
