Benefits of Cloth
Why Should I Switch to Cloth?
Using cloth diapers instead of disposables is good for our environment.
Did you have that in the U.S. alone, about 570 disposable diapers get thrown away every second?
That’s 50 million diapers per day! AND because of the chemicals inside of them, these diapers will take between 250-500 years to decompose. Yikes!
Sending less garbage to the landfills is a major benefit! Plus, diapers can be passed on & reused for years when taken care of properly. Check out our washing questions & reach out to us if you need help establishing a good routine!
It saves you a lot of $$$.
Cloth diapers are an investment but they save so much in the long run.
If you decide to purchase Buttons cloth diapers, you can get everything you need to diaper your baby for $240! (Read more about how many diapers you may need on our How to Use Buttons page).
If you decide to use disposable diapers, your total cost from birth to potty training can easily be $1,500 - $2,000. That means you could save $1,740* by switching to cloth! If you use your diapers for more than one baby, then your savings are multiplied!
Also, did you know that cloth diapers have a great resale value?!
It’s good (and cute) for baby!
No chemicals & lots of cute.
Why expose baby’s delicate skin to the harsh chemicals in disposable diapers? Especially for babies with sensitive skin who are prone to getting diaper rash, cloth diapers are the softest & most gentle option for their skin!
Another benefit that parents of curious toddlers will appreciate is that our diaper covers are “toddler proof!” You won’t have to worry about your toddler taking of his/her diaper because the snaps are very strong!
Plus, cloth diapers are oh-so-cute!
