Meet Diaperkind -


Currently servicing New York, Long Island, New Jersey, and Austin, Diaperkind is owned by mother of two, Nina. She took over the company because she was becoming increasingly worried the world she would be leaving behind for her children. She is incredibly passionate about circular economies and the power that consumer action can have environmentally. Diaperkind was based on the idea that choosing the sustainable cloth diaper option should not be any more difficult or more expensive than the conventional disposable one.





Before we Talk about the Solution, Let’s Talk About the Diaper Problem -


In the US, one baby alone uses around 3,000 disposable diapers ever year and depending on when that child is potty trained, that can be around 8,000 diapers per child. That number becomes increasingly more worrying when you remember that around 400 million babies are born every single year in the US alone…This means that Americans go through and dispose around a trillion diapers every single year. Diapers are the second most generated waste product by weight with only clothing and shoes being the first most thrown away. Conventional diapers take hundreds of years to break down, which means all these diapers are just sitting in landfill. 

Not only is the physical waste of diapers such a problem, but many conventional diapers contain harmful ingredients that should not be going anywhere close to our precious babies or into our precious Earth! Let’s chat about a few of them: 


Tributyltin (TBT) –

“A biocide used to prevent the growth of bacteria. It’s poisonous to marine life as well as humans. It damages fertility, unborn children, and our organs. TBT can be fatal if inhaled and doesn’t degrade. TBT remains in our ecosystem and is entering our food chain.”


Plastics/polymers –

“Mainly polypropylene and polyethylene, but also includes polyester, polyurethane, and polyolefin. They’re the primary materials used in product packaging, household products, and the production of plastic grocery bags, respectively. Most of a diaper is composed of these non-recyclable plastics.”



“While they’re used to soften plastics, the diaper’s adhesives, dyes, and perfumes also contain these chemicals. People of any age can have adverse reactions to phthalates, but unborn babies and young children are potentially more susceptible.”







“Diapers are the second most generated waste product by weight with only clothing and shoes being the first most thrown away. Conventional diapers take hundreds of years to break down, which means all these diapers are just sitting in landfill.”




How the Diaperkind Service Works -


Diaperkind provides a weekly cloth diaper service, where they locally wash your organic cloth diapers and return them to your door, ready to use again. You simply pick your weekly service style! They offer the Modern Fitted Diaper Service, which offers unbleached birdeye cotton diapers that are super easy to use and are available in all different sizes. They also offer the 100% organic cotton diapers that you fold around your baby (the original cloth diaper). The prefold option are amazing because you can personally customize the style and fit. The price ranges from $38 to $48 per week depending on what you pick, meaning that the diaper service will cost you at most $0.68 per diaper – cheaper than some diapers which are over $1 per diaper…it is a no brainer…





The Shop -


Besides the wonderful service, Diaperkind also has a wonderful shop that you can buy from. They have you covered from detergents to travel supplies to different cloth diaper covers. Since the Diaperkind service only supply the diapers, you’ll want to order their stress-free Diaper Service Starter Package, which has everything you’ll need on top of the diapers. In this bundle, you’ll receive 1 heavy duty diaper pail, an on-the-go bag, 6 diaper covers to ensure you’re leak free, 3 snappi diaper fasteners to do up the actual diaper, an everyday balm, and a rash relief cream. Even if you don’t live in one of their serviceable areas, you can buy other individual products from their curated store. Everything they have stocked is picked out because Diaperkind have trial and tested it to ensure it not only works but is sustainable.  

If you’re a parent to be, thinking of switching to cloth diapers, a grandparent, or caregiver then we highly recommend you sign up for Diaperkind’s free, 45-minute virtual workshop to learn how it all works. Then once you sign up for their diaper service, you’ll be able to get 20% off!
