The birth of a little boy named Paxton brought both joy and worry to new parents Erin and Tyler. Born premature and sickly, Paxton had to stay in the hospital for five weeks after he was born. When he came home, his parents wanted to give him the healthiest, happiest environment possible; that meant cloth diapers. The diapers were more comfortable than disposables against Paxton's delicate skin, but that wasn't the only reason Erin and Tyler chose them. The cloth diapers were also free of dioxin, tributyltin, and other potentially harmful chemicals used to make disposables.
After moving their family from California to Nevada, Erin and Tyler realized there wasn't a cloth-diaper service anywhere nearby. So they launched Crunchy Babies Organic Diaper Service to help new parents give their babies the same advantages that Paxton had. Each week, they deliver batches of soft, organic cloth diapers to parents' homes and pick up pails of soiled diapers. Parents who use their service aren't just doing their kids a favor—they're also diminishing their families' carbon footprint.

Lake Tahoe boasts sandy beaches for swimming and sunbathing. Hiking opportunities in the region range from the flat trails bordering Carson River to alpine trails rising 10,000 feet into the Sierra Nevada.
