I read a few days ago that Dave Matthews of the Dave Matthews Band and participant at the recent Live Earth concert uses cloth diapers for his infant son August, who he says is being raised green. According to Matthews he uses cloth diapers because “diapers are number 3 piece of garbage” in the landfill waste stream.
This is starting to be a trend among celebrity parents. Anna Belknap of CSI New York is a Fuzzi Bunz fan. So are Brad Paisely and his wife Kimberly Williams of Father of the Bride fame. Madonna was spotted changing a cloth diaper on her baby David, Mariska Hargitay appeared among the pages of In Touch magazine with her son August wearing cloth diapers, and Maggie Gyllenhaal is widely known to use cloth diapers.
I think this is a very good thing since star exposure will mean more moms will consider cloth diapers to be a viable option. It must be an exciting time for the cloth diaper industry… it makes me nostalgic for the cloth diaper company I sold a couple years ago.
