Hey fellow ADISC members!
Just thought I'd raise a topic that seems to have had very little discussion. I really don't want to seem like a enviro-do gooder or anything, but have you ever considered the amount of extra landfill we create by wearing diapers as a hobby. Every time I chuck out a disposable diaper I think about how long it's going to take to break down. As quitting is simply not an option I've been thinking about what I can do to make up for the extra landfill space I'm responsible for.
Well cloth diapers are not really my thing so I guess it'll have to be something else. Then I thought why not make a donation to a proactive environmental organisation (kinda like an offset if you will). After doing some searching online, I've found that there are heaps of great organisations out there who accept small donations. A little bit of money goes a long way too.
One that I checked out was http://www.treesforlife.org.au. I have chosen this group to support for now as they work in the revegetation of Australian bushland and forests. I'm not donating my life savings or anything, but I have to say that it makes me feel better about doing something positive for the environment and I won't feel quite so guilty next time I throw a rolled up diaper in the garbage .
Good on everyone who already supports the environment in some way. For those of us who haven't considered it, maybe this could be a worthy cause for your loose change (trying not to sound preachy here ).
Anyway if anyone knows of any great organisations or has any good ideas on the subject, post them here. I'd personally like to find a decent organisation that will accept paypal donations .
