At Pumpkin’s Diaper Delivery, we’re champions of reusable, environmentally friendly practices. That’s the cornerstone of our business, after all: giving the families within our service the opportunity to not just save money, but to make a positive change when it comes to living green and wasting less. When we made the decision to put our own little ones in cloth during their early years, we did so for a number of reasons. First, there are all the associated health-related benefits that come along with foregoing the chemical-laden disposables, which on its own really gave us reason enough to go with cloth.
The other big compelling factor, though, was that the idea of throwing out all those dirty diapers along the path to potty training just didn’t sit well with us. For every child we raised, we’d be putting somewhere in the vicinity of 5000 diapers into the landfill – each of which would take somewhere between 200-500 years to break down and decompose. After hearing those numbers, the choice was clear: cloth was the only way forward for us.
As any parent knows, though, cloth diapers are only part of the problem when it comes to disposable diaper waste – what about the wipes?! You’d have to be a pretty brave soul to tackle a messy change without the backup of a solid wipe or two – but while cloth diapering has come a long way since the days of pinned-together linens, wipes are pretty much just wipes, right? You’re either using soft, clean towelettes or you feel like you’re cheating because you fall back on the moist disposable wipes you find in the diaper aisle. Well, fret no longer, because we’ve got the solution you’ve been looking for: Pumpkin Bits!
Not to sound too much like a late-night TV infomercial, but Pumpkin Bits are the handy, effective, environmentally friendly solution for all your wipe woes. Just dissolve these tiny little bits of goodness in warm water to make a gentle (yet potent) cloth wipe solution, perfect for getting baby’s bum neat and tidy after even the most challenging of changes.
The best part about Pumpkin Bits? They’re completely, 100% natural. Following dozens of experiments and many less-than-perfect recipes, we’ve come up with a winning detergent-free combination of goat’s milk soap base, coconut oil, and water to make up these mighty little morsels. Then, we throw in a dollop of lavender essential oil (a step we skip altogether for our unscented Pumpkin Bits) and stir it all together before moulding this mixture into handy little cubes to create one of the most effectual, environmentally friendly reusable wipe solutions out there.
The days of trying to clean up messy baby bums with nothing but a water-wet cloth are done. No more will you have to sneak down the baby aisle and slip packs of disposable wipes into your cart, hoping none of your fluff-loving friends see you. Discover Pumpkin Bits today and experience just how much easier these little cleaning cubes can make change time – and for more great tips on cloth diapering (or anything at all, really!), feel free to reach out to us at Pumpkin’s Diaper Delivery today!
