Ecological Responsibility, Wordless Wednesday

This week we asked: What does ecological responsibility look like?

(Read more about ecological responsibility on our resource page, and enjoy this week’s articles on the theme.)

From Courtney: “Because we live in the country we can’t avoid driving our car into town, but once there I park the wheels, pop baby into the sling and walk to get my errands done.” 

Courtney blogs at A Life Sustained.

From Charise: “We keep plants and flowers in Baby’s room, and he waves to them and pets them every day. We hope that establishing an early love of nature will lead to a lifetime of caring about our planet.”

Charise blogs at I Thought I Knew Mama.

Jorje’s family practices ecologically responsibility by wearing as few clothes as possible at all times. They do a lot less laundry this way!

Jorje blogs at Momma Jorje.

From Melissa: “Ecological sustainability for our family has meant consuming mindfully, and as little as possible. Full term breastfeeding has been a big part of this, since it allows our daughter to get much of her food “from the tap,” eliminating the need for plastic bottles or sippy cups, and saving plenty of water and soap since nothing needs to be washed after she nurses! No packaging required either!”

Melissa blogs at The New Mommy Files.

Mikko’s learning about the Earth by helping Mama in the garden.

Lauren blogs at Hobo Mama.

Kieran learns to love the Earth by making spontaneous connections with nature. Here, Kieran and mama enjoy a visit from a manatee while they swam at Clearwater Beach. Later, they took time to learn about manatees.

From Adrienne: “We practice ecological responsibility by using cloth diapers. We also use elimination communication, which cuts down on how many diapers we use!”

Adrienne blogs at Mommying My Way.

From Emily: “We transplanted rose bushes, filled the holes with compost (from our daily kitchen scraps), and wound up with 4 accidental pumpkin patches!”

Emily blogs at Embrita Blogging.

From Sarah: “Our first step to ecological responsibility was cloth diapering. Here’s Abigail and her daddy – who can resist the big ol’ booty?!”

Sarah blogs at Parenting God’s Children.

From Arpita: “We try to never let living in small spaces prevent us from being ecologically responsible! This empty pallet will soon be a lovely, flourishing palate garden!”

From Rebekah: “Practicing Elimination Communication conserves many resources. Here is our son at 9 months old on his “little potty”.”

Rebekah blogs at Liberated Family.
