Organic Baby Diapers 

They are too many diapers in the environment.

They are made with polluting and unhealthy materials such as plastic. Through a lack of sustainable alternatives, disposable diapers have been piling up in landfills since 1965. Today landfills are bursting at the seams with an estimated 400 billion traditional plastic diapers - each taking up to 500 years to decompose.

 Study shows that elevated levels of toxic chemicals are found on disposable diapers 

The diaper industry is regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which does not require diaper manufacturers to disclose their ingredients or test their products or materials for a variety of chemicals to ensure safety. 

Problems with conventional diapers:

  • ❌Bleaching chemicals: Traditional diapers are bleached in order to prevent bacterial growth, and often leave chemical residue on the diapers (which may cause skin irritation and sensitivity). The most commonly used bleaching chemicals are chlorine, sulfates and hydrogen peroxide.

  • ❌Plastic materials can emit VOCs that can harm health. Note that even plastics produced from plants, or bioplastics, may have concerns similar to their petroleum-based counterparts. When looking for eco-friendly diapers we need to pick:

  • ❌Chemicals: Too many diapers are made with phthalates, parabens, bisphenols, the fluorinated compounds known as PFAS, and flame-retardant chemicals. Alcohol, preservatives, latex, PVC, TBT.

  • ❌Fragrances or lotions, or other skin-conditioning agents.

​Nothing is more delicate than your baby’s bottom and protecting it requires products that are gentle and free of harsh chemicals. Frequent diaper changes are essential as wet diapers may trigger rashes and contribute to poor air circulation.

How to find an eco-friendly diaper brand?

When we are looking for eco-friendly diapers we need to look at:

  • Brand is transparent and lists all the ingredients

  • Brand that minimizes the use of plastic in their products and packaging.

  • Brand that uses unbleached pulp or pulp bleached using totally chlorine-free techniques, rather than elemental chlorine-free, or ECF, techniques. ECF uses a chlorine derivative, which is linked to skin, nose, and throat irritation and is toxic to aquatic systems.

  • Brand has tested its products adequately for harmful ingredients and contaminants.

  • Chlorine-free

  • Fragrance-free contains substances that may trigger skin irritations

  • Dyes-free: they  may cause rashes and skin irritations

  • Optical brighteners -free: they may contain harmful substances

  • Lead-free: it can damage a developing baby's nervous system

  • No Chlorine

  • No Latex

  • No PVC

  • No TBT

  • No Antioxidants

  • No Perfumes

  • No Lotions

  • No Phthalates

  • Free from other nasty chemicals and compounds,  phenols, formaldehyde, carcinogenic dyes, and also allergenic dyes - so they are not only safe for babies, but will also protect them from rash, irritation, and discomfort.

How to choose the best diapers?
  • Diapers that are plain, undyed, or ones with minimal designs. Many of the dyes used in diapers have been linked to health harm or may be contaminated with toxic heavy metals.

  • Organic cloth diapers may be a good way to avoid some of the worrisome chemicals in disposable products. They also tend to be better for the environment, as they produce less plastic waste and use less energy to manufacture. ​Disposable diapers aren’t the only available option. The growing reusable diaper market makes it much easier for consumers to use cloth diapers, and diapers that snap or Velcro.

  • Bamboo Baby diapers: Most diapers are bleached with chlorine, sulfates or other harsh chemicals. The residue from these bleaching agents may be one of the causes of skin irritation and discomfort. Bamboo fibres do not require a bleaching process because it contains a natural anti-bacterial agent known as Bamboo-Kun. 

  • Certified diapers: Look for environmental certifications, like the Forest Stewardship Council’s, to ensure that ingredients and materials are responsibly sourced.

  • Choose an EWG VERIFIED™ diaper brand: they created 2000 banned ingredients list
