Love this post and all the comments too :) Just wanted to add that I have a pretty cute electric kettle (jug) and I only boil as much water as I need so I'm not boiling a full jug and using too much electricity. It's so fast.

I'd also love to see rainwater tanks used more widely world-wide. They are an incredible water savings, and you can get attractive slimline designs that pop down the side of the house and collect all that free water from the gutters for the garden. Brilliant.

What a huge success! I used what I had on hand - 1/2 cup of strawberry yoghurt and 1 cup of milk instead of 1 1/2 yoghurt. I also used one apple and 2 pears. I cooked it in ceramic dish for 45min at 180C and it was puuuuurfect. Yes, it's pudding-like, but that's what we loved about it. I might have added a dollop of clotted cream on top but our friends had custard and it was the perfect combination. Thanks for a great recipe!

Hi all, we don't have Memorial Day here in Australia, so no holiday for us! Here is a question for you. I just found this fabulous high chair image on Babycenter. Does anyone recognize the brand or know where I might find it?

I use both Seventh Generation and Nature Babycare (and Moltex, from Germany), here in Australia. I have had excellent experiences with all three.

As mentioned by others, the Nature Babycare nappies are a little unpredictable size-wise - I found them excellent for newborn, but the size 3 are too small for my 8kg baby girl, and the size 4 are a little too large. I have never had any leakage, so use the Nature Babycare size 4's for nighttime, and use the Seventh Generation size 3's for daytime. The tabs are not stretchy like the Seventh Generation/Moltex nappies - I just make sure they don't dig into my baby's legs.

Here in Australia you can buy the Nature Babycare nappies at the two major supermarket chains at an excellent pricepoint (around $20) compared to the Seventh Generation/Moltex which you need to buy from a specialist organic/eco-store at a higher price (around $32-34).

Please support these new brands as it is so great to have more eco-friendly options to choose from!
