Taking Baby Steps Towards Better Choices for the Planet

Taking baby steps towards better choices for the planet

While most of us want to do more to protect the planet, it’s not always easy to know how to make a difference while also balancing busy lifestyles, children and career. We’ve pulled together some recommendations for everyday choices that, when added up, can help make a positive impact on the planet.

Diapers that offer the best of both worlds

When choosing the best diapering option for Baby, many parents try cloth diapers to help reduce waste but find it hard to stick with a cloth diaper regimen, so they switch to disposable diapers for more convenience and better protection. Some parents also worry about how much water and energy it takes to wash a cloth diaper. If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, try the new Pampers Pure Protection Hybrid Diapers. Combining what you love about both cloth diapers and disposable diapers, this unique system pairs soft, reusable cloth diaper covers with disposable inserts so you get Pampers protection with less waste*.

Pampers Pure Protection Hybrid Cloth Diaper Covers

Crafted with premium fabrics, the reusable diaper covers are built to last and come in a variety of designs so you can customize your stash. When used with Pampers Pure Protection Hybrid disposable inserts the covers can be used several times before washing. The reusable covers are easy to clean and use on average 270 less gallons per year vs. traditional cloth diapers*.

Pampers Pure Protection Disposable Inserts

Because your baby deserves skin-loving care without compromises, Pampers Pure Protection Hybrid inserts lock wetness away from skin for up to 12 hours and produce 25% less waste**. The disposable inserts are designed to fit Pampers Pure Protection Hybrid cloth covers but can be used with any cloth diaper cover, giving you the flexibility to create a cloth cover stash that works best for your family.

Sustainable choices at home

Taking baby steps towards better choices can begin at home, and your weekly grocery list is an easy place to start. Choose products made by companies that are doing their part by creating more sustainable products. Look for certifications like green-e and a recycle logo to know you’re choosing a product that is making a difference.

The Green logo means the product is made using 100% certified renewable electricity. Choosing renewable energy can lower carbon footprint.

Check for the recycle logo before you buy to see if the product packaging is recyclable, and get familiar with your local recycling guidelines.

Sustainable choices when you’re on the go

Everything you need, all in one place

Being a family on the go means bringing a diaper bag full of essentials like diapers, diaper cream, hand sanitizer, an extra onesie (or two!), snacks for the baby and a bottle of water for you every time you walk out of the door. The next time you prep to leave the house, you can make more sustainable choices by filling a reusable water bottle and packing snacks in reusable containers instead of one-time use pouches.

Want to do more?

A few small changes will help reduce the amount of plastic you send to the landfill. Our lives are so busy that eating at home to avoid disposable packaging isn’t always practical. The next time you stop for a quick bite to eat let your server know that you don’t need a lid or straw with your beverage. Also, invest in a packable reusable shopping bag and a few reusable grocery bags. Grab your reusable bags every time you leave home to eliminate the need for a new plastic bag every time you go shopping.

Make baby steps to better family choices

Parents say their children are inspiring them to make environmentally friendly choices. From an early age, you can begin teaching your child to take baby steps towards better choices for the planet.

Make recycling a family affair! Turn sorting recyclables from a chore to a fun game. Help your child learn to sort the types of products that can be recycled. Learning to recycle cardboard, paper, and other items will help instill earth-friendly habits that will last for years to come.

Get outdoors! Learning to make better choices for the planet can start outside your own home. Easy tasks like setting up and refilling a bird feeder or picking up litter during your neighborhood walks are fun ways to teach your child to appreciate and respect the outdoors.
