Get ready! Get set! Diaper! It’s that time of year again when Diaper Junction, the leading online supplier of cloth diapers and diaper supplies, invites parents and their diaper-wearing children to participate in its annual Great Cloth Diaper Change. The contest, which is held at the company’s headquarters here, is part of a Guinness World Records event held at sites around the world.
Sponsored by the Real Diaper Association, the event is timed to coincide with Earth Day, helping to remind parents and parents-to-be about the critical role cloth diapers play in promoting a healthy environment.
According to the Real Diaper Association:
- More than 20 billion disposable diapers end up in landfills each year in the U.S.
- Although package instructions maintain fecal matter should be flushed prior to disposal of the diaper, less than ½ percent of fecal waste from disposables ends up in the sewage system.
- It takes more than two centuries – and maybe as many as five – for a disposable diaper to decompose.
Perhaps even more concerning, diapers use a significant amount of chlorine in their manufacture, which means babies who wear disposables are exposed to the chemical each day. In fact, an annual supply of diapers for just one baby uses 20 pounds of chlorine.
Mom of two Bryana Guckin founded Diaper Junction after discovering how difficult it was to find cloth diapers and accessories after the births of her own children. Although cloth diapers were once the standard, as disposables soared in popularity during the late 1960s and early 1970s, cloth diaper suppliers and delivery services began closing their doors en masse. Even more alarming, as more parents turned to disposables there was less and less information available about the use and benefits of cloth diapers. As a result, cloth became associated with mess, smell and inconvenience.
Guckin set out to change all that by providing a user-friendly shopping experience for parents of all diapering experience levels. In addition to its extensive selection of diapers and accessories, Diaper Junction offers a blog, informational articles, how-to advice and video clips to make the cloth diaper experience as easy and convenient as using disposables.
Today, Diaper Junction is the go-to website for parents who want to provide their children with environmentally-friendly, chemical-free diapers and accessories.
