Environmentally friendly diaper choices have come a long way since even one generation ago! We now have more choices than ever to keep environmentally harmful disposable diapers out of landfills while still having the convenience posed by disposable diapers. There are many disposable diaper alternatives from gDiapers to more advanced cloth options, which have come a long way since our parent’s generation. This article will take a look at 3 great alternatives to disposable diapers, where to get them, and price.
gDiapers are a great new product that has gotten a lot of attention recently as an eco friendly alternative to traditional diapers. The design allows them to be flushed, composted, or tossed out; however they return to the earth in just 50-150 days. This disposable diaper alternative is great because they work the same as disposable diapers yet are not harmful for the environment. Who wouldn’t want the option to be able to flush a diaper instead of keeping it around to smell up the house? You only replace the interior so the cloth exterior can be rewashed and used over and over again; however the interior provides solid absorbency to keep the outer shell clean. This great product can be found at www.gdiapers.com and range in price depending on product, but a refill of 40 costs about $14.49.
2. All-in-One Cloth Diapers
Although I am not a huge fan of cloth diapers due to the fact you have to wash them and they are not as convenient as disposables this cloth diaper product stood out as being a solid alternative to disposable diapers. The cloth diaper is made from cotton and is chemical free, which makes for a safe alternative to whatever diapers are made out of. You know what you are putting on your baby here, and you can rest assured that it will not harm your precious little one. The waterproof cover on these cotton diapers are already attached so there is no assembly required when using and reusing this product. The biggest disadvantage in the past was that you would have to assemble cloth diapers, which could be a huge pain. This disposable diaper alternative can be found at www.onestepahead.com for $69.95 for a three pack.
3. Kushies Boy Ultra Diaper Trial Pack
This alternative to disposable diapers works very similar to the gDiaper concept of having a disposable lining and washable cloth exterior. The disposable lining is environmentally friendly and can be flushed; however Kushies does not recommend that they be flushed into septic tanks. The outer shells come in fun colors and designs and the interior liners are fairly easy to replace; the cotton design makes these disposable diaper alternatives soft and comfortable for the young baby. I am recommending the trial pack since it is only $29.99 and comes with everything you need to get set up with this new system; if you don’t like it you are not out too much money, and if you do you have all the basics.
