Hey Everyone! I am so happy to announce that Youth For Christ Lakeshore Teen Moms (a non-profit group that serves teen moms in the Holland, MI and surrounding areas) won the Bummis Holiday Give-away! EcoBuns nominated this group for the contest because we totally believe in the efforts that the group makes in building community for a group of ladies who begin their motherhood experience in one of the least easy ways - as a teenager. These girls' lives change in the blink of an eye, going from hangin with friends and attending school, to getting up to feed and care for an infant in the middle of the night. The stress of being a new mom is huge even for an adult (I was 28 when I had my first and it was a huge adjustment at first!). Youth for Christ Teen Moms Group helps moms adjust to the stressful changes in their lives and offers assistance in meeting physical and emotional needs. I was recently at a MOPS meeting and saw two of the previous moms of teen moms speak. Their stories touched me and I am so happy that they are able to take the gift from Bummis and use it to their advantage. Bummis is such a wonderful and thoughtful company to work with, they have that personal caring touch that I really appreciate in business. CONGRATS TEEN MOMS!

Baby! Were keepin' it green one little behind at a time! WELCOME to the EcoBuns Blog. We are committed to sharing the many benefits involved with natural parenting and cloth diapering. We are so pleased with the benefits our family has had with cloth diapering and we want to share those benefits with others. Our family has saved over $2000.00 by cloth diapering, that is huge for our family as things are tight with the troubled economy. We have also noticed huge benefits to our son. He suffers with many food allergies, he was born prematurely and has breathing issues. His skin is healthy and he very rarely has bouts with diaper rash since we began cloth. We pleased to have read the studies that show that cloth diapers are beneficial to children who have breathing issues as disposables contain chemicals that are linked to asthma-like symptoms in lab tests. Finally, is the astronomical benefit to the environment that we feel we have contributed by using cloth diapers. ONE TON OF TRASH SAVED to be exact, and disposables don't biodegrade either so the first one ever made is just sitting somewhere in a landfill, YUCK! The earth is a beautiful place. Our kids deserve to have it stay that way, before they can make the decision to be "green" on their own, make it for them, use cloth. Keep their carbon footprint as tiny as the day they were born.
