Perhaps they aren’t as dramatic as prison industries or remote island farmers being displaced by mining, but disposable diapers are one of the largest, grossest and least useful contributors to household garbage. Not just that, but they also aren’t cheap, and new parents aren’t really a group of people with a lot of money to waste.

Reusable cloth diapers are a great alternative, and speaking from personal experience, they’re no grosser than the alternative (big bags of poopy diapers everywhere, one way or the other). They can also be pricey though, and aren’t always easy to find. So why not sew your own? This blog caters not only to the DIY parent demographic, but also to those parents who want to make some extra money working from home making fancy cloth diapers. How’s that for stickin’ it to Pampers?
