I’ve signed up for a compostable diaper service and haven’t yet looked into cloth diapers 🙁 What’s the issue with compostable diapers?
Mickey
51:38
Got it, thank you!
Nina Lassam
52:04
Of course!
Wendi
52:18
I recently learned from my parents that I was a cloth diaper baby! they didn't have a choice back then. and it worked well for them.
Nina Lassam
52:44
Yes! The first single use diaper was introduced in the late 60s
Kathryn Fiske

Although I live in SF, I'm taking this class tomorrow (by recommendation from friends) from a Boston-based company which goes through the world of cloth diapers https://www.diaperlab.com/register/introduction-to-cloth-diapers

thanks for sharing Kathyrn
Christina + Malik
53:33
Question about cloth diapers: is there a difference from an impact standpoint between buying cloth diapers and using a service
Nina Lassam
53:35
Diaper Lab is amazing!
Nina Lassam
54:00
Great question: yes! Services are more water efficient because we use commercial machines
Lauren K
54:15
I’m a mom of one year old twins and I still feel like most of my decisions are in “survivor mode”. I love the idea of cloth diapering, but can’t fathom how I do that with limited time… any suggestions for super time constrained parents/parents of multiples? Am I misguided thinking this will even take more time?
Nina Lassam
54:21
(True of all cloth diaper service, not just ours!)
Erik Weber
56:15
Amen to making decisions in survival mode. The least sustainable choices we've made are often because the more sustainable approach is so much harder
Erik Weber
57:15
Buy Nothing groups are great for opportunistic stuff -- we got some hand me down clothes recently -- but not effective for things you need in a short time
Erik Weber
58:18
Definitely why I love the Loop concept, you all launched in NYC a few months too late for our newborn purchases 😭
Lauren K
59:23
Awesome, thank you both!
Cherie Salonga (she/her)
59:24
Thanks Erik! I second Buy Nothing groups, I also have barely bought any clothes for 3 years for my little ones. We have tons of gear and toys for up to 5 years old 🙂
Cherie Salonga (she/her)
59:40
Little one, I only have one haha
