Sara Snow talks about Cloth Diapers on GMA

gmaIn case you missed it, this morning Sara Snow, Green Living Expert, appeared on Good Morning America to talk about how to green your baby’s diapers.  She broke it down into “green’ greener’ greenest” as far as diapering options go.

She discussed chlorine free disposables (the green option), which while they might be slightly better as far as the chemicals within go, are no better for the environment.

Next, the “greener” option, were hybrid systems.  She highlighted G Diapers and Flip.  (Here is a video comparing G Diapers to Gro Baby, and my video review of the Flip system.)

The “greenest” option is of course cloth diapers.  On the set she had Bum Genius, which she announced she plans to use with her baby.  Unfortunately, she was cut short due to time and hardly got to talk about the cloth diapers!  She was able to briefly mention a diaper sprayer and getting rid of the solid waste.

I was pretty happy with the representation of cloth diapers, and even more happy by the discussion of the chemicals contained in disposables.  The host said he was shocked by how many chemicals were in them and said it was scary stuff!  Bravo!

I just love it when cloth diapers get media attention!

  • I totally agree that while this was a great segment, it could have been much better. It was the “green” in the Green, Greener, and Greenest lol. I am glad they talked about the Tushies a bit, but wish they would have went a little more into the gel free and why the gel is bad. Didn’t know they were all cotton though! Big plus in my eyes if I ever need sposies in the future.

    While I believe the segment showed people that cloth is cute and do-able, it was lacking a ton. I wish it would have shown HOW to use the diapers, if you can make a how to video in 2 minutes explaining all the dirty details, they could have done it in 30seconds just showing the basics. I also think the diaepr sprayer was crucial- so many are scared of poop and knowing there is a super simple way to remove it makes it a lot less intimidating.

    In the end though any positive media will help cloth diapers right? That’s the important part we all need to remember. Now if only we can get Cloth Part 2 on Ellen!
