What Every Parent Needs To Know About Cloth Diapers

By Kristi Pahr

There are so many decisions to make in preparation for a new baby. Big ones, like where you want to give birth, and not so big ones, like whether you really need that wipes warmer, are on constant shuffle in your head as you prepare for the arrival of your bundle of joy. One decision that's gaining more and more popularity as we become more mindful of our environmental impact is the decision to forego disposable diapers and make the switch to cloth. 

We know that disposables generally aren't biodegradable. According to the Real Diaper Association, "Disposable diapers are the third largest single consumer item in landfills, and represent about 4% of solid waste. In a house with a child in diapers, disposables make up 50% of household waste."

The simplest thing you can do as a parent or care-giver to reduce the environmental impact of having a baby is to make the switch to cloth diapers.
