This was my point exactly. We all do what we can, and what we're comfortable with. Right now I'm doing as much as I can possibly manage, while also home schooling and managing a home. Our children we cloth diapered, I use cloth pads and a menstrual cup; we don't use paper towels except for bacon grease (all other uses are subbed with kitchen cloth); we have bathroom cloth for our family and T.P. for guests; we drive as little as possible while still not being hermits; we got our own chickens, we are planning a garden, we eat whole foods, we don't use conventional medicine or doctors, etc. It's what I can manage. Anyone who feels convicted to change something n their lives to be more earth friendly should absolutely do what they can, but basically you said that using peat moss is irresponsible since we know better. Well, I could make that same argument for SO many of the things listed, but I would never tell someone they're being irresponsible by using disposable diapers...or....or....or.... Get my point? We all do what we can, sometimes adding things in, sometimes taking things away. Nobody can do it all unless we go aboriginal and live in mud huts with loin cloths and farm our own food and animals.
