When I started cloth diapering, I didn’t realize how many types of cloth diapers were out there. It really does take time to build up your stash and find diapers that work for your baby. Some are stretchier on the thighs which is good for chunky monkeys like mine. Then there are some that’s uber stylish that it’s pretty sought after by almost all cloth diapering mothers. One of the ones I reach for first is my Sustainable Babyish Cloth Diapers from Erin Nau. It’s no surprise that Sustainable Babyish has taken over cloth diapering site, Diaper Swappers by storm; Erin used to be a fashion designer working in New York City before she became Work at Home Mom (WAHM) and diaper connoisseur.
What makes Sustainable Babyish more wonderful is that it’s GREEN! How is it green? Erin uses Eco-friendly textile such as hemp and Organic cotton. Hemp is great because it is a renewable resource and gentler to the planet. This wonder fiber is also ultra absorbent. Sustainable Babyish takes it a step further and uses Organic cotton which uses sustainable practices in cotton farming, a definite plus. Erin also utilizes fair trade labor by employing WAHMS in the United States. Her diapers, especially her soakers are sold out within minutes of being stocked. It’s incredible how a mother can change the world one diaper at a time.
The Sustainable Babyish Diaper currently has three color choices: Pink, Baby Blue, and Natural. We LOVE pink! Erin also has plans to use materials like Organic fleece and velour. I can’t wait to try those out. You can keep up with the Sustainable Babyish stocking via following on Twitter. Or check out Sustainable Babyish blog to see all the cute little babies modeling her duds.
Writer’s Note: Correction. Sustainable Babyish do not use WAHMs to sew her line. Erin used to sew it all herself but could not keep up with orders. Everything is still handmade, but SB now use a woman owned and operated sewing contractor in the USA.

My first thought while reading this post was, “So what? Lots of cloth diapers are green.” Then I took a look at her Hyenacart page and instantly fell in love with her wool covers. I’m crazy about Kiwi Pie wool covers, but am thinking my little guy needs a pair of those wool karate pants in squash…

Hi Rachel, cloth diapering is friendlier to the environment period; however what makes SB more greener than others is her choice in textile. Not many use hemp and Organic cotton. Most still use conventional cotton which can be very harsh to the planet. That’s why SB gets extra kudos from me.
and I agree. The wool karate pants are amazing. I am actually going to do a post on her interlock soakers in the coming up weeks.
Thanks for your comment! 🙂
