Why Cloth Diaper?
Cloth Diapers are Good for the Earth!
Disposable diapers leave an enormous footprint on our planet. The average baby needs about 6,000 diaper changes from birth to potty training – that equates to about 2000 pounds of disposable diaper landfill waste – for just ONE baby! On top of that, it will take hundreds of years for these petroleum based diapers to decompose. When choosing cloth diapers, you are choosing the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you’ve done your part to reduce the amount of waste your family contributes to our local landfills.
Cloth Diapers are Good for Your Baby!
Depending on the brand of disposable diaper purchased, a baby’s skin will be exposed to numerous chemicals, including dioxin, sodium polyacrylate, dyes, fragrances, plastics, tolulene, xylene, ethlbenzene, and other toxins. A baby that is in disposable diapers full time, from birth to potty training, will be exposed to these chemicals for 2-3 years. Exposure to these chemicals can cause diaper rash and respiratory problems. By choosing cloth diapers you are choosing to limit your child’s exposure to harmful chemicals.
