We talk about all of the financial, environmental and economical reasons for choosing cloth diapers over disposable diapers. There are other perks to the choice to cloth
diaper your baby as well! Cloth diapers come in a wide variety of colors and prints. You can find a cloth diaper to celebrate any holiday!
For Christmas, you can pick up a couple of green and red cloth diapers and be the center of attention at your family gathering. Your baby running around in a green diaper at the Christmas party, sporting , for example the “Henry” style of Babylegs and a comfy red and gold Christmas shirt will rival the cuteness of any baby wearing a holiday “outfit.” Plus, your baby would be far more comfortable and way easier to change! These diapers also are perfect for creating the most adorable Christmas Card photos. They send a message, spread awareness and look super cute!
For Halloween, an orange or black cloth diaper would be the envy of all of your friends at that Halloween Party. I once used a navy colored cloth diaper as part of my one and a half year old son’s costume. It certainly made things easier and more adorable. The positive attention we got led to open, lighthearted discussions about the benefits of cloth diapers and the ease of use of modern cloth diapers with total strangers.
For Valentine’s day, you can find prints with hearts or pink, red and lavender diapers that when modeled by your adorable bundle of joy will make great pictures to add to your Facebook “Happy Valentine’s Day” status update. It not only grabs attention, but gets people talking about cloth diapers. Every time you have a cute picture of your child in cloth diapers on your Facebook, you increase awareness about the ease and adorableness of cloth diapers and help to change the world. Disposable diapers are the third largest single consumer item in landfills, so doing your part to just share what you know and love can make a significant impact on our world. If your posts reach even one person, you’ve spared 10,000 disposable diapers from entering our landfills. Can you even picture ten thousand diapers? I can’t!
Celebrating holidays with cloth diapers is fun and can make a huge impact on our environment.
Remember, just because someone seems resistant to cloth diapers doesn’t mean that your “passive activism” can’t change their minds. Many time, passive activism, or just demonstrating yourself having fun with your good choices can change even more minds!
Do you part! Celebrate with cloth!
