As I see it, using cloth diapers is about being a good steward of the environment and saving money. When I looked at the problems facing mothers looking for creative ways to make ends meet, it seemed cloth diapers might be the answer for their problems as well. Still, I could see how the usual startup cost might be beyond the means of the families who most needed to use cloth diapers. I realized if I wanted to help, I’d need to find a solution that could work for mothers in the greatest need as well as mothers like me who had other options.

Cloth seemed to be the only real option to me. It's how I was raised. Why would anyone want to use something disposable to create more waste?

Upon realizing how quickly costs would add up I was determined to find savings where I could in my families budget. I have friends that have cloth diapered their babies and realized that would make the most sense. I was elated to find that I could in fact make them myself and then realized I wanted to pass my ability to others in my area. Life has been challenging since the recession began in 2008 and starting this business will bring savings to multiple families. I am currently the sole modern diaper laundering service in the Clovis/Fresno Area. I plan to expand to all Fresno County communities by the end of 2014. I have a variety of options available--new mommy service, but promote the most economical route--self washing--. I also provide free consultations to families that are interested in cloth diapering.

Cloth is simply better. Better for the budget, better for baby and better for the earth.

Quite simply, it is one of the very best things I can do for my child. Not only do we eliminate dioxins in our life and not add to waste products we find cloth adorable and way to role model sustainable living.

For the health of my children and our environment.

I chose cloth diapers for many reasons. The health of my baby, eco friendly, and of course the savings. But my best answer would have to be, because that is what my mom did. She encouraged it and as I looked into it, I couldn't find any reason not to use cloth! It is far too easy, accessible and affordable!!

I could go on forever... Why NOT choose cloth!?

I chose cloth for my daughter as well as my business because it is the most natural way to diaper a baby. As a new parent I have tried to give my daughter a great start by providing everything for her as natural as possible. In the process I spoke with many parents in this area who had tried to do the same but didn't have the support they needed. With this information I decided to open a store that would support them both with the supplies they needed as well as the education.

Our journey began with researching the cost benefits of using cloth over disposable but within our time researching has become so much more. Cloth has become a passion for us as it is so fulfilling knowing I am keeping chemically processed diapers away from our son and helping the environment at the same time. There was an occasion in which we had to use disposable diapers and each and every time our son came in contact with these, he developed a horrible rash so we have seen first hand the difference and will never look back. My husband will attest that I have become a little obsessed but have already convinced others to give cloth a chance. I was meet with skepticism from older generations who do not realize how far cloth has come and how easy it is to use now and have been able to pass my experiences along. Our daycare even told us they would not cloth diaper, however I went in person and convinced them to change their minds about it. I certainly feel I represent a modern family and hope to lead by example.
