Best Green Diaper Alternatives
If you are trying to find a green diaper solution consider chlorine free diapers or even biodegradable diapers. You can also try cloth diapers and even get them delivered to your front door. There is nothing wrong if you are simply looking for the least expensive diapers on the shelves (it will be our little secret!). What ever option you go with – enjoy the convenience of ordering them online. This cute pair is from Bummis.
Chlorine Free Diapers
If you don’t want to mess with cloth diapers, or you want to supplement cloth diapers with something a little more eco-friendly than regular disposables, you will be happy to know that there are a number of alternatives on the market. Popular brands include Seventh Generation and gDiapers. You may want to try a package of each to start to see which works best for your child.
Biodegradable Diapers & Diaper Composting
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area you are in luck. There are diaper services providing delivery, pickup and composting of completely biodegradable diapers, wipes and pull-up style training pants.
Bambo Nature (75% biodegradable)
There is a reason for the word “genius” in bumGenius – just check out all of the special features of their cloth diapers. They are award winning, affordable and best of all they come in a great selection of really cute colors.
Top Cloth Diapers
Many of my friends used nothing but cloth diapers and swear by them. I love all of the cute colors and patterns available.
Cloth Diaper Services
Some moms are convinced that cloth diapers are best solution for their babies and for the environment. If you are one of those moms, sign up for a diaper service before your baby arrives. There is no reason to wash those dirty diapers in your own washing machine. A diaper service will pick up the soiled diapers and make sure you always have plenty of clean ones on hand. You can learn more at the National Association of Diaper Services.

Huggies and Pampers both make disposable swim diapers. Some athletic clubs, country clubs and public pools will also require your child to wear a fitted reusable swim diaper that looks like a cute little Speedo.
The Diaper Dekor and the Playtex Diaper Genie System 2 are both very easy to use and do a good job keeping the poopy smells under wraps.
