Yes, you read it right. For years, the debate has been centred around DISPOSABLE DIAPERS VERSUS CLOTH DIAPERS. The ever-growing green revolution, however, has sparked innovation in social entrepreneurs worldwide whose passion has now given birth to a third alternative – biodegradable diapers and diaper accessories. Before we go into that, however, let me run through the concept of diaper covers which have been around for quite some time, but have yet to gain enormous popularity in the Philippines.
For those interested in THIRSTIES diaper covers who are based in the Philippines, Pinoybaby Store carries Thirsties Duo Wraps and Thirsties Diaper Covers. The Thirsties Duo Wraps comes with an adjustable rise design, allowing you to spend for only two sizes from baby's birth until potty-training.
The Thirsties Diaper Covers is designed for chunkier babies and for nighttime double stuffing. This is great for those who want to do away with disposable diapers completely - even at nighttime. Pinoybaby Store has a 7-day return (for store credit) policy, if you happened to order the wrong size or color. It also offers free shipping (within the Philippines) for orders above Php2,000. Also available at the Spoiled! Store in Goldland Millenia Suites, Ortigas. For those ordering from the US site of Thirsties Diaper Covers, the entire product range (Duo Diaper, Pocket AIO V2, Fab fitted covers, including accessories) is available.
gDiapers, by Jason and Kim Graham-Nye of Australia, offers a line of really cute gPants. Various colors are available like this girly girl ruffle little gPants with white ruffles made out of vanilla bean fabric. The use of this fabric (left-overs from the vanilla bean gPants) showcases the wonders creativity can play in making eco-friendly products both useful and attractive. For Filipinas who are consummate rewards, points, and rebates-seekers, check out their gThanks rewards program. gDiapers supports the Blue Butterfly Campaign, with a portion of the sales of its products. gDiapers also recently partnered with Green Shipping to offset the carbon footprint entailed when shipping products. Shipping is only within US or Canada, however.
