Happy Camper

This hand-drawn print served as the starting point for the Outdoor Adventure Collection. Our designer doodled some of our favorite aspects of camping and scanned them into her computer, resulting in an adorable work of art. With cheerful birds, quaint picnic tables, classic canoes, s’mores by the camp fire, pop up tents, and even line-drying diapers, this print will make … Read More

A “Hope”ful Diaper for Giving Diapers, Giving Hope

There’s a new diaper out that I am going absolutely crazy for. Ready for it?

gdgh-hope-1

I know, right? The design alone had me cry a good, old-fashioned Joey Tribiani “how YOU doin’?” With origami cranes and clouds (raise your hand if you remember trying to make 1,000 with the rest of your class back in the day!) and watercolor accents, it’s sweet and adorable while still super modern and fresh. But what made me actually click “Buy” was the cause behind the print.

Giving Diapers, Giving Hope is an organization that was started in 2011 as a local cloth diaper bank. Through the support of amazing individuals and companies (of which Thirsties is a humble and proud member), GDGH continues to thrive and grow, currently able to provide diapering assistance to 30-60+ families each month.

They can describe what they do way better than I can:

The Environmental Impact of Cloth Diapers

SAVE-THE-EARTH

In celebration of Earth Day (and, subsequently, Earth Month), we should all take a moment to do a fist pump for, well, ourselves.

You know how environmental naysayers kind of poo-poo (no pun intended) people when they suggest tasks to lessen your footprint? That no matter what you do, it’s not enough? Well, cloth diaper users are killing it in the eco-friendly department.  

Depending on your source, between 18 and 24.7 billion diapers end up in the trash…annually. 
Possibly moreSeriously. 

According to Treehugger.com, an average baby goes through 5,000 – 8,000 diapers during the time before potty-training. “The United States alone produces 18 billion dirty diapers annually, thanks to the eighty percent of parents who use disposables.” This adds up to 82,000 tons of plastic and 1.3 million tons of wood pulp. Picture a forest of 250,000 trees, destroyed.Considering that a diaper “lives” on a child’s bum
