Donate a Diaper to Giving Diapers, Giving Hope

In honor of #GivingTuesday we wanted to share with you something close to our hearts. Over the past few months we’ve been working very closely with a wonderful non-profit organization, Giving Diapers Giving Hope, to help take over some of their shipping duties. For the past 2 years they have partnered with GroVia to ship donated cloth diapers to families in need. Kim and Maria with GDGH approached us several months ago as they were looking for a new shipping partner and we were honored that they asked for our help! Going forward, Thirsties and Kelly’s Closet will be the official shipping partners for Giving Diapers, Giving Hope. All donations for the organization can be shipped to us (or Thirsties) and we will send those diapers to a family in need. GDGH sends us a list of all applicants that have been approved and we pack up their diapers and ship them to those families. We’ve been asked in the past if there is a way that you can donate your free gift with purchase to Giving Diapers and we can now process that a little easier! We’ve created a coupon code that will be active most days, DONATE. Instead of entering the current coupon code for the day, you’ll enter coupon code DONATE and we’ll set your free diaper aside to send to a family in need! The minimum …

Unsung Reasons To Love Cloth Diapers

Usually if you ask someone why they use cloth, they’ll tell you one of four things: Cloth Diapers are cheaper than using disposables. (this is the main reason I use them). Cloth Diapers are healthier than using disposables (the other huge reason I use cloth; I mean have you looked into all the chemicals in ‘sposies? Eek!) Cloth Diapers are better for the environment (I have to admit, this had little to do with my decision) Cloth Diapers are just plain cuter than disposables! (#SorryNotSorry its undeniable! ) But there’s so many OTHER good reasons to love cloth diapers! Reasons like: I can wipe off the outside of the diaper after a meal and not have to change it! (Because admit it, I’m not the only one who lets their toddler eat with just a diaper on!) Handing the baby a clean diaper to hold to keep him busy while changing him – and not having to worry about what’s going in his mouth if (when) he chews on it. Also I don’t have to worry that he’ll rip it apart! When the diaper is no longer suitable for its original purpose, it can still be useful! Use delaminated diapers that are still in good repair otherwise for swim diapers! – If the diaper is ripped or not needed for swimming you can always use it for rags. Artsy moms …

Eagle Scout, Africa and Cloth Diapering – an inspiring story

So I just got wind of this amazing Eagle Scout Project that our friends at FuzziBunz have been involved with. A young 15 year old scout, Ian Woldt has recently completed his Eagle Scout Project Uganda where he worked on providing necessary house improvements to a Baby House in East Africa, as well as obtaining necessary medical equipment to help the babies who live there. FuzziBunz proudly supported Ian and his project by generously donating 500 Cloth Diapers. We all have heard of how much need there is in Africa to help babies and it is wonderful to see our cloth diapering community chipping in. Upon completion of his project, he wrote: Eagle Project Uganda has been completed, and the Baby House in East Africa now has a new water system that provides clean drinking water, as well as hot water, and water storage tanks. The Uganda Childcare Clinic now has an Oxygen Concentrator, a supply of pediatric oxygen masks, pediatric oxygen regulators, and a baby weighing scale. I brought six extra pieces of checked baggage with me, which also included 500 cloth diapers donated by FuzziBunz in New Iberia. At the end of the project we even had enough Ugandan Shillings left in the Eagle Project fund to buy a swing set for the children! All the missionaries I worked alongside in Africa were overwhelmed by the generosity of …

What Do You Do With Your Diapers When You are Done Diapering

I loved cloth diapering my kids, but I have to admit the day we were finally free of diapers, it was bittersweet. I miss diapering my precious babies (oh, and I miss having babies in the house!), but there is less laundry and I remember being so proud when all my kids were finally potty trained. When diapering is done, it doesn’t mean your FuzziBunz should end up in the trash! I designed FuzziBunz to be pretty indestructible, so they will last and last, which is good news for all my green mamas out there, like me! Instead of throwing away old diapers and inserts, I found alternative uses for them and thought I’d share some of my ideas and the many ideas that have been shared with me over the years on how someone can re-use their FuzziBunz diapers and inserts when diapering is done: Use the inserts to wash windows or dry off a washed car. Inserts are soft and absorbent; they dry fast and provide great shine on your windows or ride. I never did this, but I always thought that sewing a couple together for a car-drying towel would be a good idea to cover a larger surface area. Use inserts as dusters. Yes, you can attach old inserts to your Swiffer duster or even on a wet mop and then clean your floors! The microfiber …
