So you recycle, walk to work, and set the air conditioner so you are on the brink of constant sweat, but you are not sure about this cloth diapering thing. Aren’t they quite messy and don’t they use up a lot of water in washing? Cloth diapers are not only the best choice environmentally, but they are quite easy to use and wash. BumGenius Organic Cloth Diapers are a great choice for someone who wants to use natural materials and needs an easy to use cloth diaper.
The environmental benefits of cloth diapering are enormous. Proponents of disposable diapers champion the idea that cloth diapers use so much water to wash that it isn’t much different from using disposables. However, disposable diapers use water too. More water is used to manufacture and use disposable diapers than cloth diapers. There is also the landfill issue. With over 27 billion disposable diapers used in the USA alone every year there are large amounts of disposables going into the landfill. It is estimated that they will take from 250-500 years to decompose. Disposable diaper packages state that human waste is to be discarded into the toilet, but human waste is often discarded along with the diaper. Cloth diapers are the ultimate in recycling. You can recycle the same diaper through multiple children or use it for several years. Then when you are all done with the cloth diaper you can sell it, give it away, or even use it for house cleaning. When that is all said and done you are left with something that will not take 250-500 years to decompose.
BumGenius Elemental Organic One Size Cloth Diapers are easy to use cloth diapers with certified organic cotton up against your baby’s skin. This diaper goes on and off like a disposable. The stretchy tabs and gentle leg elastic help your baby get a good fit. Since this is a one size diaper this cloth diaper can be used from approximately 7-35lbs. Sizing is easily adjusted by snaps on the front of the diaper. To use bumGenius organic diapers simply fasten the diaper on your baby with snaps. When soiled shake off any waste into the toilet. You can also use a handy diaper sprayer over the toilet to remove any soiled areas. Clean your baby’s bum and fasten on another cloth diaper. When wash day comes you will need to run an initial cold wash to rinse them well, followed by a hot wash and cold rinses.
When you enter the cloth diapering world you will find that your options for style go far beyond a little printed strip at the front of a disposable diaper. BumGenius organic diapers come in a variety of colors and prints. In addition to a standard white there are 12 additional colors available. You can choose a pastel or more bold color to suit your child’s personality. You can also find some beautifully designed prints. BumGenius Organic Cloth Diapers are available individually or in cloth diaper packages. You will save more money if you purchase them in a package. Packages are available for 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 diapers at Thanks Mama.
Using cloth diapers is an excellent way to go green. Choosing cloth diapers with material grown free from pesticides and herbicides is even better. No need to worry about the icky factor.
