10 Green Diaper Subscriptions For New Moms

I can attest that these green diaper subscriptions are a true lifesaver for new moms!

By Lora O’Brien

If you’re a new mom, then I guess you’re riding the rollercoaster that is motherhood. Those precious moments with your newborn are often tainted with lots of other struggles. For example? Trying to get your baby to feed, establishing a new routine, all while battling the tidal wave of emotions that are taking over your body. Every single new mom has been where you are now, and for many, it’s hard.

When I became a first-time mom, I felt like my multitasking reached superhero levels. I almost added it to my CV under ‘skills!’ Between being sleep-deprived, euphoric and seeking a work-life balance, there wasn’t much time to stress the small stuff. And one of those small worries I quickly eliminated was diapers.

Sure, when I first became pregnant, I hoped to use cloth nappies. They don’t end up in landfill, they’re reusable and super eco-friendly. But it takes time and effort to use them. And since we’ve already covered how hard it can be to be an eco-friendly parent, we must stop shaming parents who choose to use throw-away diapers for their little ones.

But that being said: we all have a choice. And when you learn that the average baby goes through between 1500-1800 non-biodegradable diapers every year, you realise that choice should be sustainable.

Luckily, green organic diapers exist. I used them, and still do, on my daughter, who is two. We’re approaching the dreaded potty training period, but until then, using organic diapers is what has worked for us.

What Are Organic Diapers?

Organic cloth diapers come in various fabrics. These include hemp and bamboo, which are awesome because of their natural microbe-fighting ingredients that prevent bacteria from infiltrating and infecting baby’s skin.

There are also green diapers that are made of organic cotton, and even wool. But the most common fibres for green diapers come from wood pulp cellulose. Organic diapers will also use no chlorine, bleach or chemical dyes.

One thing I’ve heavily relied on for the past 24 months is a trusty organic green diaper subscription. It means that my changing unit was always stocked and ready to go, which is great. Nothing sucks more than a late-night dash to the supermarket to grab a pack of diapers!

Depending on where you live and your particular needs, I think one of these green diaper subscriptions could be a real lifesaver for you, too. Oh, and by the way – even if you don’t have kids or a bun in the oven, these green diaper subscriptions are the perfect gift for friends who do!

Eco Pea Co. was founded by parents who spotted a gap in the diaper market after their daughter suffered a reaction to the brand they’d previously used. The couple decided to create the safest and most green eco-friendly diapers and wipes that they could, offering the same solution to other like-minded parents.

Growing up on the coast, the couple had been surrounded by mother nature’s beauty their whole lives, from the Pacific ocean to forests and mountains. Being environmentally conscious was a priority, as was health. Wanting to create a better diaper for the planet, they settled on using the best material they could find, which also happened to be the most inexpensive: bamboo.

10. Kit & Kin

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want: green diaper subscriptions! Okay, Spice Girls music aside, there’s so much more to this brand than the fact it’s co-founded by Emma Bunton, otherwise known as Baby Spice of the famous girl band.

Kit & Kin was born when Emma and co-founder Chris struggled to find products which didn’t irritate their children’s skin. They partnered up to develop a natural, gentle and sustainable alternative that is easily accessible for families.

As well as taking care of the next generation, Kit & Kin is also caring for the state of our planet. The baby brand has teamed up with World Land Trust to raise awareness of rainforest conservation and to help save and protect threatened habitats across the world.

For every 10 customers who buy a Kit & Kin green nappy subscription, the company will fund the purchase and protection of one whole acre of tropical rainforest through WLT. And for every product purchased through the Kit & Kin website, they’ll also make a donation to WLT.

Made from: Sustainably harvested fluff pulp and plant-derived materials
