A cloth diaper vision you can support | realdiaperevents.org.

What if your cloth diaper use was part of a larger community of usage?

What if your city/town/community promoted the use of cloth diapers to lower the cost of waste disposable?

I’m looking to figure out a Peterborough solution for this involving our city council and county council.  The city of Toronto is alone in its service of composting disposable diapers because of the lack of economic support.  Eastern townships in Ontario have started offering subsidies to parents for purchases towards cloth diapers.

Are you interested in this kind of green advocacy?

5 Simple Steps To Begin Cloth Diapering All About Cloth Diapers | Cloth Diaper Answers All About Cloth Diapers.

  1. Choose a system – there are about half a dozen types of cloth diapers.
  2. Sized diapers or one size fits all?
  3. Dirty Diaper Storage – figure out a system or you’ll be wondering where a safe place is to put the first nasty diaper!
  4. Where to buy – because cloth diapers have begun a feminist resurgence in North American manufacturing, would it be fair to ask you to stay away from Made In China?  Really?
  5. Washing – do you like doing laundry?  I mean really like it?  Because you’ll be down there every other day at least.  Naw… subscribe to diaper service and deal with the regular chores when you can!
If you went through Autumn’s complete list of the 5 steps – bravo! – I think you are seriously considering the use of cloth diapers!  The next step is to get out and touch/feel the different kinds of diapers out there.  This can be more luxurious than you ever thought possible!

Disposable sales are down! – by Autumn Beck

Why I think disposable diaper sales are down All About Cloth Diapers | Cloth Diaper Answers All About Cloth Diapers.

You see the link to my favourite cloth diaper blog on this website because Autumn really makes sure all the news gets covered and really loves the advocacy of this topic.

I found this short article interesting and it would mean more if there was real number we could put onto the cloth diaper industry about growth over the last decade.  No one except the Real Diaper Association seems to really be aware of who is out there designing, manufacturing and retailing cloth diapers and the associated gear.

If you have been able to get stocked up with diapering gear from Changing Ways Diaper Service – thank you again!  If you are getting your gear from other sources: are they online retailers or stores; are they new or used diapers; and have you or will you pass them on to others?   I would love to know your comments!
