Why use Cloth diapers?
Better for the Earth
The average child will go through 8,000 diapers in his or her lifetime. Disposable diapers consume natural resources (300 Lbs of wood & 50 Lbs of petroleum per year) when manufactured and clog landfills when discarded (over 2,000 Lbs per baby).
Better for your Baby
Disposable diapers contain chemicals including Dioxin, Sodium Polycrylate and many others. Holding these chemicals next to your baby’s skin for 2-3 years during their early formative growth stages is concerning and avoidable with cloth diapers.
Studies have also shown that cloth diapered babies potty train 6 months earlier than babies using disposables.
Better for your Wallet
The cost to purchase disposable diapers exceeds the cost of our diaper service. By reusing quality cotton prefold diapers and using efficient cleaning techniques, OlyDiaper can deliver a diaper solution that is better for your baby, the environment and your wallet all at the same time.
