Saving the World, One Change at a Time

Cotton Bottom Babies is offering a Cloth Diaper 101 class at Milk and Honey Kids in Allentown on Saturday, April 14 at 10 a.m. If the term “cloth diaper” conjures up images of plastic pants and safety pins, cast that old fashioned image aside, as today’s cloth diapers are high tech. There are many different options from which to choose, including one that works just like a disposable, only it is not thrown away.
“If you could keep harmful chemicals away from your baby’s body, save over $2,000 dollars while doing so, and keep about one ton of waste out of the landfills, “would you do it?”, asks owner Laura Putt. “By choosing cloth diapers, parents can protect their baby’s health, save money, and reduce their impact on the environment. Cloth diapers are easy to use, work better than disposables, cost less overall and can be sold or donated when the child is no longer using them. It has also been shown that cloth diapered babies learn to use the potty an average of six months earlier than those in disposables.”
