Atlanta, GA – 28 January, 2017 – As people become more aware of the world around them and their environmental footprints, they begin turning to sustainable living and conscious purchasing. Many are looking backwards instead of forward for answers. The use of cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers can have a major impact on the nation, both in cost and from an environmental standpoint.
It is estimated that 27.4 billion disposable diapers are used each year in the US alone. That’s a big burden on the nation’s landfill system, in fact becoming the 3rd single household item in landfills today. And if waste alone is not enough to move people, the cost to the environment to produce diapers is extreme. To keep diapers on a single baby will require 300 pounds of wood. The environmentally conscious family will naturally look elsewhere.
“Cloth diapers provide a solution to the problem of waste and can contribute to the deceleration of deforestation,” says BabyTooshy owner Gioula Chelten. “Deforestation affects our children’s future and by decreasing the use of disposables, we are decreasing our environmental footprint.”
Gioula Chelten states that cloth diapers are healthier for the environment but also for children, as it reduces the amount of petroleum-based chemicals that are placed near the baby’s skin. Chemicals like petroleum, dioxin, and Tributyl-tin (TBT) are all found in disposable diapers and can cause hormonal problems and significant irritation to some children. Gioula continues to say that “these are problems that can easily be avoided by using cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers.”
Cloth Diapering can be challenging to parents who are new to it because there are various different types and styles involved. This is not the case with disposable diapers because all you need to know, is your baby’s approximate weight. In their attempt to make things easier, Baby Tooshy offers cloth diaper accessories, as well as informative articles and advice relating to cloth diapers to those interested in cloth diapering their children. Various Baby Tooshy products like their newly released “cloth on my bum, breast milk in my tum, sleep with my mum” embroidered Cloth Diaper Covers are also available at Amazon.com
