This month Mama Mooshka is hosting a cloth diaper giveaway, which Willy B Mum is co-hosting with Making it Home. Woo Hoo Go us! Of course, being cloth diaper advocates ourselves, we want to share the wonderful world of cloth diapering with another special Mummy out there.
Why Cloth is Better
Mainstream disposable diapers are NOT biodegradable meaning that they sit in landfills forever and ever. The average little human uses 6,500+ diapers before they are potty trained! A 2008 Time magazine article says “The Real Diaper Association, an advocacy group founded in 2004, estimates that 27.4 billion disposable diapers are used each year in the U.S. (according to the EPA, that translates into more than 3.4 million tons of waste dumped into landfills)”. This is beyond Crazy to me and this was in 2008! Fast forward four years… and this is the reason I never use standard diapers, not to mention most of them are bleached white – Can you imagine sitting in a bleached nappy 24/7 for 2-3 years of your life? Also, most disposable diapers have insane chemicals in them like dioxins, sodium polyacrylate, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and Tributyl-tin (TBT), among other stuff. Sounds scary right? Yeah, well it is.
With all of this in mind, I think you will agree that cloth definitely is the way to go! And, this giveaway is a good introduction to cloth diapering, or to add to your cloth diaper stash!
