From Feel-Good to Real Good: My Shift from Natural Disposables to Cloth Diapers

Here’s a letter from one of our customer:

Hi there,

I’m Jennifer Adler, a customer of Tidee Didee, but most importantly, a parent. I’d like to share my journey of rethinking diaper choices for my children and the lessons I’ve learned along the way.

Like many, I initially chose “natural” disposable diapers. Advertisements caught my attention, promising a greener option for my children, and I felt good about my choice. But over time, I began to question the ‘natural’ tag on these diapers. Was I making a sustainable choice, or was I merely paying a higher price for an illusion?

I learned that even though these diapers were labeled as natural, they ended up in the same place as any other disposable diaper – the landfill. And there they remained, not decomposing, just like the first-ever disposable diaper that is still in existence somewhere in a landfill. This was a sobering thought. I was paying a premium for diapers, not for their sustainable disposal, but for a feel-good tag.

As I delved deeper, I realized that this choice, which seemed greener, was not really helping to ensure a healthier planet for my children. The issue of waste management is larger than I had originally thought, and simply switching to a different kind of disposable diaper was not making a significant impact.

It was at this point that I discovered Tidee Didee and their cloth diaper service. Here was an option that wasn’t about doing less harm; it was about actively doing good. Cloth diapers can be used repeatedly, saving resources and reducing the amount of waste we generate.

Sure, it’s a bit more work, but as parents, we’re no strangers to putting in extra effort when it comes to our children’s well-being. And the satisfaction of knowing I’m contributing to real, tangible environmental benefits far outweighs any convenience that disposable diapers offered.

So here’s my appeal to all the parents out there. Let’s move beyond the ‘feel-good’ choices and strive for choices that lead to substantial, positive change. Because in the end, it’s not just about feeling good about our choices but ensuring a better world for our little ones.

Best,

Jennifer
