Namely Newborns would like to congratulate our Earth Day Contest winners, Becky and Kevin Fenner, the proud parents of 6-month old baby, Colin Fenner! The Fenners of Altamonte Springs, Florida, wrote in to tell us what they are doing to reduce their impact on the environment while raising Colin.
Colin’s mother Becky says, “We’ve been using these wonderful reusable baby diapers since he was born. They are adjustable, so we plan to use them until he’s toilet trained. We really try to “go green” and limit the use of baby wipes too. My mom made small “wipes” that we wet and clean his little bottom with. The laundry adds up, but we use Seventh Generation detergent and dryer balls instead of the dryer sheets. We usually hang his diapers on a drying rack to limit dryer time and keep the diapers in good shape.”
As the winners of our Earth Day Contest, Becky and Kevin will receive a blue organic baby blanket personalized with Colin’s name. We think the baby blue blanket will go wonderfully with those beautiful baby blue eyes!
Our thanks go out to all families who participated in the contest. Namely Newborns applauds you all for your efforts to “go green.”
