I like to think of myself as environmentally friendly, but in reality, I am nothing compared to the other EC moms I have spoke to. I didn't start EC as a way to reduce waste. I started because it made sense to me and I wanted to do something good for my son.
I don't do attachment parenting. I was not a baby wearer--my baby was born 9 pounds 12 ounces and 22.5 inches long--it hurt too bad! I have let him cry it out on different occasions for different reasons. We don't co-sleep(yes, if he wakes up in the middle of the night, I walk all the way to his room to take him to the bathroom).
Anyone can do EC! :)
