Changing Diapers, Saving the Earth

Lalabye Baby has been changing the way you do diapers since 2012. In that time, we’ve done quite a bit to help out this beautiful earth of ours.

 

 

“No one knows how long it takes for a disposable diaper to decompose, but it is estimated to be about 250-500 years, long after your children, grandchildren and great, great, great grandchildren will be gone.”

Since 2012, we have saved approximately 9 million disposable diapers from ending up in the landfill, if you consider that each cloth diaper lasts for an average of 150 changes before it can be reused as a swim diaper-an even longer life cycle!

“Disposable diapers generate sixty times more solid waste and use twenty times more raw materials, like crude oil and wood pulp… [and] the manufacture and use of disposable diapers amounts to 2.3 times more water wasted than cloth.”

Choosing Lalabye Baby cloth diapers for your child is saving a lot of natural resources in diapering alone if you consider that the average baby uses around 60 diapers a week, that’s 3,120 diaper changes in a year. And that’s just for one kid! Disposable diapers for just one child use up, “Over 300 pounds of wood, 50 pounds of petroleum feedstocks, and 20 pounds of chlorine.” So by cloth diapering, you’re saving natural resources like wood, water, and oil!
If the average cloth diaper stash is 25 diapers, we can estimate that we’ve provided around 2,400 kids with a full stash of diapers since opening in 2012. That means we’ve helped preserve a lot of natural resources and will continue to save more every year!
So, take advantage of our awesome Earth Day sales and continue to help save the earth through your choice to cloth diaper! ❤ Earth Day sales will run from April 21-23.
