A Crunchy Granola Suggestion for Your Diaper Pail

In conjunction with the cloth diaper saga, I have been looking for other ways to simplify our lives (read actually stay in the budget and thrill my husband) and to make our family more environmentally-friendly. To reduce our carbon footprint, if you will. Other than our two old cars. And the fact that I go through countless Diet Pepsi cans in a week.

My latest money/environment-saving endeavor comes in the form of recycling our Diaper Genie. For those of you who don't know, this is a diaper pail which is made for disposable diapers and requires a specific type of plastic refill bags.

Determined to use our diaper pail for the cloth diapers and because I was tired of buying disposable refill bags, I ordered a Wahmies Bag online. These bags are waterproof but reusable, and exactly what I was hoping to find.

By using an empty Diaper Genie refill bag cartridge to hold it in place, I was able to use the Wahmies bag with our pail. So if any of you are considering making the switch from disposables to cloth, know that it is possible to recycle your old diaper pail and save the environment... one pail at a time.
