I'm about 70% Cloth Diapers and 30% Disposable diapers.
We cloth when we can, but use disposable at night and when we know that we'll be in nursery or running all about town!
Sooo....why do I tell you this?
Well....yes....I'm green, but not 100% holistic.
I try to do my part and when I have to make decisions like....what is the best disposable diaper for my child and the environment, I did my research.
So, outside of winning the three months of Pampers Cruisers in the Happiest Baby Contest from Incredibundles.com, we have typically used Earth's Best diapers.
Recently, though, I became acquainted with Bambo Nature diapers. These diapers are slowly but surely making their appearance in the United States and strive to outdo the competitors in the most environmentally conscious disposable diaper.
Bambo Nature is manufactured by Abena. Abena has voluntarily elected to undergo strict rigorous environmental inspections of their products. "The setting of criteria is based on an assessment of impacts during the whole life-cycle - all the way from raw material to production, consumption and waste. This means all raw material suppliers, business partners, distributors, and subsidiaries must embrace these principals and actively take them on board in daily business practice" (Bambo, 2009).
Abena's Bambo diapers are the only baby diaper to carry the Nordic Swan Eco Label that tells consumers which products are the least harmful to the environment but are equivalent in quality to other brands which do not carry the label. In other words, Nordic Swan Eco Lable requires the product to work just as well, but with less of an impact on the environment, as any other similar product.
These diapers are free from
Abena only uses state-of-the-art renewable raw materials.
We received a package of Size 5 Bambo Nature diapers to review.
First off, I love the packaging. The plastic, of course, is recyclable, BUT....there is a handle on the packaging! LOVE THAT!
As far as the actual diaper, there is no difference in the look or texture of the diaper, in comparison to other conventional diapers, so the fact that they are better for the environment, yet look and operate the same as their competitors was a huge plus in our book. I always hated how some of the natural and chlorine free diapers look like a dingy brown diaper. Yuk!
We never experienced any leaks and the fit was great on Noah! Now if I could only teach him how NOT to undo his own diapers!
Recently, for some reason, Noah has had SEVERE diaper rash that nothing has been able to help with, except for our Triple Paste cream. Well, of course, that leads us to having to set aside our cloth diapers for a time and revert to disposable until it clears up. It's been really nice having these diapers around!
I would highly recommend these diapers!!! Make sure to go to their website and buy a package - USE THE COUPON CODE "NOAH" for 10% off of your entire order
