How stupid are these diapers?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I just saw these...
So they're still disposable diapers by a non-eco-friendly company, "contain organic cotton" (how much or even if it's USDA certified is not noted), and the aloe is not noted as being organic. Basically these are normal old disposable diapers in a green package - and by green I mean colored, who knows if it's even recyclable.

This has to be the biggest greenwashing drama I've seen all week. Lame. Especially when there are so many actual green diaper options.

I called the company and asked what's up and they stuttered around saying um, email contact is better. I was like, so... you can't tell me on the phone about the diapers - i.e. if it's USDA organic, etc. I did find out that PART of the packaging is recycled. Still, not even close to good enough.

Just last week they made peace with the Sierra Club.

That irritated other splinter groups because they weren't included possibly.

lol, i'm well aware of that, I'm jsut confused about what you reference is in conjunction to this situation with this post and this product. Or are you just mentioning an unrelated issue that has to do with the parent company of this products brand? I guess mainly I'm confused on what you point was?

I thought painting a product green made it ecofriendly.  Is my lime green H2 no longer fuel efficient?  I put a save the earth sticker on my energy star thermostat and cranked the ac til it was 50 degrees in the house.  Is that no longer acceptable?

Yeah I requested a sample of these when they came out just to look at them, I do product development for a green company and I am always looking at the crap out there. Looks like a regular Huggies diaper to me! Doesn't even say chlorine free or anything!
