The Lifestyle & Features section of MyWestTexas.com featured an article on Shelley Tween and her cloth diaper service, Healthy Diapers.

And she couldn't get past the statistics she now rattles off to other parents, like how Mothering magazine reported that 7 billion gallons of oil are used each year to produce plastic diapers, nearly four times the amount of oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Preserve.Besides, Tween says, the concept itself is odd.

Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening.
I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this short article together.
I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading
and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
