Cloth 101

Eco Friendly

Billions (seriously, billions!) of disposable diapers are consumed every year in North America and end up in our landfills.

A disposable diaper is estimated to take anywhere from 250-500 years to decompose.

Cloth diapers require significantly less raw materials, water and energy to produce compared to disposable diapers.

Cost Effective

Let's look at an example: Consider a baby that uses diapers from newborn to age 2.5. Based on 8 diaper changes a day, at an average cost of 30 cents per diaper, the cost of using disposables is over $2100! Full-time cloth diapering can start from as little as $300 for economical prefolds & covers.

Cloth diapers can be used with multiple children, multiplying your savings!

Believe it or not, cloth diapers can have a resale value. There are many local swaps and Facebook groups for buying, selling and trading gently used diapers.


Cloth diapers come in a variety of fibers, both synthetic and natural, including cotton, bamboo and hemp.

All are free from chemicals such as dioxins, sodium polyacrylate and Tributyl-tin, that are found in disposable diapers. 

Cloth is breathable and comfortable for babies delicate skin and can also reduce rashes and irritation as a result of chemical or fragrance sensitivities.


Cloth is Cute!

Forget boring white - modern cloth diapers are super stylish and come in a range of fun colours & prints!
