I’ve shown you in the past how you can begin using cloth diapers for $200.
But, the reality is most of us a visual learners. Show us a graph, chart or pretty infographic and you got us.
Do you ever wonder how many disposable diapers a child goes through in a year? Have you ever pondered how that compares to the number of cloth diapers you need?
Country Drawers provides us with a very simple yet very impactful picture:
That’s 3000 disposable diapers going into the landfill in your child’s first year compared to 24 cloth diapers. 24 cloth diapers that will be reused in year 2 and 3. 24 cloth diapers that could be used on other children.
I don’t care if you cut that number down to 2000, you’re still saving A LOT financially and environmentally.
Show me the numbers!
Here’s a graphic I found from One Posh Baby’s showing how much you could be spending on disposable diapers: A brief glance at this chart is all it takes to prove to even the biggest skeptic that cloth diapers save you money. A closer look will reveal that you can save even more money by spending less than $22/cloth diaper. Many of you are cloth diapering at a tremendous savings!
Do you know someone who has doubts about cloth diaper savings? Do family members give you a hard time for using cloth?
Show them this post and I doubt you’ll be the butt of any jokes. You’ll be the one they come to next time they shell out $15 for a box of diapers they’ll just throw away.
