Modern, Stylish, Eco-friendly Cloth Diapers!
Cloth diapers can save you money!
Many new and well-seasoned moms alike are making a choice to do what is best for their baby, the environment, and society in general; they’re cloth diapering. Nearly 300 million is spent annually on the disposal of single use diapers, and disposables generate four times the amount of solid waste cloth diapers do. However, cloth diapering no longer means square pieces of material jerry rigged around baby’s bottom and held on by a diaper pin. Moms today have more options than ever to not only easily, but stylishly, cloth diaper…and start teaching their little ones about sustainability literally since they’ve been in diapers! There are so many options; here are just a few examples to wet your palette;
•Fuzbaby.com offers a wide selection of cloth diapers in beautiful color prints. From their Elemental Diaper Collection, you can find “air” diapers that come in swirls of canary and chartreuse or their “earth” diapers in shades from olive to terra cotta. You can also see their gallery of Diaper Art! In addition to these diapers being eloquently adorable, they are all hand painted and made with 100% organic cotton.
•Over at betterforbabies.com, Little Beetle sells diapers made from Hemp that are 100% organic and diapers made from Organic Wool. Their production facility is located in the US and adheres to fair trade practices.

You will be contributing toward making our world more sustainable, and natural or organic cloth is also much better for baby’s skin than the chemicals and tape used in disposables.
