The economics in using cloth diapers is actually very easy
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 3, 2008
MLB Industries Inc, dba Happy Heiny's is pleased to announce that during these times of economic crisis and fears sales continue to soar. Many families are feeling the pinch at the grocery store and they are trying to cut back in any way that they possibly can. The cost savings and ease of using reusable cloth diapers are starting to make many moms and dads think twice about using disposable products.
MLB Industries has been in business since January of 2002 and since the beginning they have witnessed a growth of 30% or more per year. This year they are looking at closer to a 40% increase in growth. With over 4 million dollars in sales since the company started, no slow down is in sight or expected.
"The economics in using cloth diapers is actually very easy," states Linda Byerline, CEO and developer of Happy Heinys. "The cost of a single diaper from a big box store such as Costco is $.25 (this cost is far greater at the grocery store) and although as a single item this does not sound like much, it does add up over a child's diapering years. Most children will use 8760 diapers from birth to potty training costing a whopping $2190. Compare that to the purchase of just 24 one size reusable diapers at $409.32 parents have a savings of roughly $1780.68. This does not include the fact that these very diapers can be used for multiple children making the saving even greater."
"When it comes to cloth usage and the environment one of the biggest concerns is: What about increased water usage? The reality behind this question is that it actually takes 2.3 times more water to manufacture and use disposable diapers (1). When taking the environment into consideration we are frequently reminded how full our landfills are and the fact that each child will produce 1 ton of disposable diaper trash is astonishing. That is trash that takes 250-500 years to decompose (2)," explains Byerline.
Since there will always be babies, there will always be a need to make the cost of them a little easier to bear and with Happy Heinys so easily and widely available to parents they are working towards that goal. Happy Heinys are available in all 50 states as well as many countries including Israel, Singapore, UK, Hong Kong, Canada, Italy, Croatia, and many more.
