At Bums Away, we sell a variety of products to help you raise your baby in an environment that is safe for baby as well as for the planet.
Using cloth diapers is the easiest way to minimize your baby's eco-footprint. In Canada alone, over 4,000,000 disposable diapers are thrown out every day (Environment Canada). With each baby using approximately 10 diapers a day for 2-1/2 years, that's about 8700 diaper changes per baby. With cloth diapers, you could meet this need with 24-60 diapers per baby.
Cloth diaper users reduce (use many fewer diapers per child), re-use (wash & re-use their diapers), and recycle (pass diapers on to another child or use older diapers as cleaning rags, etc.).
Bums Away also has a variety of other products to help you raise your family in an eco-friendly way: organic cotton bedding, clothing and toys for baby; reusable lunch containers for the whole family; natural skin care products made in Canada; breastfeeding accessories; eco-friendly laundry detergent for washing cloth diapers and the rest of your laundry; baby carriers to help you get stuff done while keeping baby close; and re-usable menstrual products for women.
