I really wanted to hold out on making an Earth Day shopping guide, but it is the day of the year to scoop up great deals on cloth diapers. There are some great sales during other times of the year (Black Fridays, a stores anniversary, or a brands anniversary), but Earth Day tends to be the day to get the things you need.
I totally think the idea of shopping on Earth Day is RIDICOLOUS. The problem is TOO MUCH STUFF, not the lack of stuff. But the problem is also the wrong kind of stuff and not the right stuff, so before you buy this Earth Day 2018 think about why you need it and what value it has to your life, home, and the environment.
I could do a full shopping guide to cloth diaper shopping on Earth Day. But I don’t want to. It’s a lot of work, and maybe the affiliate dollars are worth, but maybe it’s not. Either case, I don’t need to justify it. Instead, I figured I’d tell you what I’m buying this Earth Day? Sound fun? I think so.
This post is full of affiliate links. I need to tell you that because any clicks and purchases you make may result in a commission earned at no extra cost to you. Happy Shopping.
Eco-Friendly Earth Day Shopping List
Check out what I’m picking up this Earth Day, and let me know what you’re getting. Not everything on this list is going to be on sale, and I’ll update it if I find out it is on sale. Some of these things are just changes I’m making in my life for Earth Day.
I need more Birdseye flats for this year’s flats and handwashing challenge because I think they’ll be the best option for this year’s goals. These will be put to good use when baby is done diapering, I’ll use them in my kitchen or house for cleaning and drying.

Affordable Cloth Diaper Covers
Mostly stocking up for the flats and handwashing challenge since my moms washing machine at some of mine last year and I had to garbage a few that I used to use.

Bedwetting Solutions for Toddlers/Preschoolers
