Diaper Service


You'll probably be surprised to learn that using a diaper service can actually be less expensive than buying disposable diapers. Eco-Baby Cloth Diaper Service in Colorado, for example, costs $68 for the first four weeks. Cloth diapers also generate less waste than disposables and don't pollute water. Start new parents off on the right track by paying for a diaper service that uses earth-friendly practices. You can find one near you through the Real Diaper Industry Association.
