This vs. That: Diapers

TvT Diapers Gray Final 2

Disposable vs. Cloth

This: Disposables
  • Convenient!
  • Easy to fit many babies
  • Not green—most do not biodegrade, are full of chemicals as they are petroleum based
  • Nursery and day-care friendly
  • Poo disasters!…you know what I’m talking about, up the back, into the car seat, out the side of their pants etc. Ick!
  • Common side effects include diaper rash
  • COST–$2500 from newborn to potty-trained, check out this link
That: Cloth
  • Inconvenient? Matter of opinion and lifestyle I think.
  • SO many choices, now just find the right diaper for the right fit on your baby (See the links below).
  • “Green” as they are reusable.
  • Most nursery and day-cares are not-so friendly…but I would love to be proven wrong here.
  • Poo disasters no more! With a good cover (which most are) this is not a problem. They hold the poo in on the back and the legs. BUT what about cleaning the poo off the diapers? — enter modern technology! The toilet spray tool or biodegradable liners that make flushing the icky stuff…very simple.
  • Not near the problem with diaper rash, especially with natural fiber diapers and covers
  • COST WAY LESS! See for yourself.

Everyday Design: Book Page Sculptures

Books-Collage-Final-2

This is our inaugural post for the Everyday Design series. We’ve loved living in our little farm house and connecting with our local community just because we get to help expose ourselves and those around us to art and design in the most unlikely places. Thus was born the Everyday Design Series, a series of posts that look at the everyday events and products of our lives and then connecting those items and events with art and design inspired by them. This month it’s books; I love to read and to travel to random far off and even fictional areas to have wonderful adventures without ever leaving my chair. I also love the power books and print have had on the development of civilization and our continued growth due to our ability and freedom to research, learn, and develop ourselves through the printed word. So here’s to books and their continued influence and power in our lives!

Landscape and Garden; Vision

GCD-940x360_thumbnail

We want to see our world transformed into a greener place, and one of the ways to do that is challenge people to relearn the art of gardening. We have a passion for mixed use gardens that are producing functional and healthy foods for our families, while looking good enough to make the neighbors jealous.


High class design in overalls. It's the simple life of a farm through the eyes of a couple of crazy designers. We call ourselves Green Couch Design and we are Bringing Design Home.
