New additions to the website (aside from a visual makeover) include:
Cloth Diaper Savings Calculator. Not sure how many cloth diapers you need? There are 2 options with the Thirsties Cloth Diaper Savings Calculator
- Choose a package (Economical, Convenient, Absorbent). Then see a breakdown of the quantity and costs of each component all compared to the cost of disposable diapers.
- Input a custom quantity into each product box. Values automatically calculate as you customize.
Wipes are also included in your calculations! All to often we fail to figure in how much we spend on those convenient packages of disposable wipes.
Years ago when I began cloth diapering the figures thrown out seemed so fabricated to me. Perhaps I was just a bit skeptical. But, now with the excessive amount of data available at our fingertips it’s hard to argue with the savings shown with even the most conservative numbers.
I am happy to see that Thirsties provides footnotes and graphs with their calculator. All of this information combined is exactly what the biggest skeptics (often number crunching dads!) need to be convinced of the savings.
I had fun playing with the calculator and creating my own stash. Here is the savings and graph for 24 hemp prefolds, 14 covers (4 xs, 4s, 4m), 10 Duo AIOs, 10 doublers and 20 wipes:
If Thirsties products are all you ever used you would not be scraping the bottom of the barrel. Even at a low price you can still get cute, absorbent, convenient diapers PLUS they’re Made In the USA!
If you’ve ever wanted to see some behind the scenes footage of a big cloth diaper company watch this cute video! I enjoyed seeing the big fabric machines and real (and very happy!) employees sewing, packing boxes and answering calls. The Merrill Family loves what they do and it shows.
To celebrate the launch of these fabulous new features Thirsties has allowed me to customize a giveaway just for you! I went the economical route and will be giving away 4 Duo Hemp Prefolds and 1 Duo Wrap.
