So here is the deal folks: Our planet can no longer absorb all the disposable diapers we are using. Choosing cloth diapers is no longer a choice it is an obligation. You may think I am saying this because Everything Birth offers a wide range of cloth diapering supplies. But, that is not the case at all. Actually, our choice to sell cloth diapers stems from our deep rooted conviction to rid the planet of as many disposable diapers as possible. So if for some reason you are one of the families that does not use cloth diapers, just give it a try. Just one cloth diaper used after your child poops can easily save over 200 pounds of disposables from ending up in a landfill. Once you see how easy it is, add some more and more cloth until you have phased out the nasty disposables.
There really is no excuse. There should be no argument at all. Get over your reluctance because using cloth diapers is something you can do to clean up the mess our throwaway society is generating. Disposables take 250-500 years to decompose and they make up 50% of a households rubbish. Do not wait. Switch to cloth today.

This dramatic decrease in volume alone proves that cloth diapers are better for our environment. The fact that Americans spend billions each year on disposable diapers, despite the environmental risks, is why so many special interest groups and corporations are against cloth reuseable.
