2013 diaper drive results

The diapers kept falling off of the original setup, so after we received an additional 200 diapers, we needed to move the diapers to a bigger space.  This pile represents over 1,800 disposable diapers.

The display will be set up in the store through mid October. Stop in to see how many disposable diapers you are keeping out of the landfill by using cloth diapers!

Congrats to the winners of the giveaways from the diaper drive:

Grand Prize winner of Thirsties prize pack: Tamara S
Smart Bottoms Prize Pack: Nicole W.
EcoBuns $25 gift card: Allison T

Thank you again to all of our loyal customers who helped donate to this display that will be gifted to Nestlings Diaper Bank of West Michigan.

5 months of disposable diapers

When parents use disposable diapers, it's hard to grasp how many diapers are going be used and going into the landfill.  This month, EcoBuns hosted a diaper drive to support Nestlings Diaper Bank.  With your help, we collected almost 2,000 diapers!  Thanks you!

So what does 5 months of disposable diapers look like?  Like this:

This is just 5 months!  Not even an entire year!  That's a lot of diapers.  Considering that more and more children aren't potty training until closer to the 3 year mark, this is a very small time frame of diapers.  

Make the switch to cloth diapers.  Join us for a Buns Boot Camp Class to learn how easy it is to make the switch.
