They are very afraid of cloth diapers, and the fact that they published their myths vs facts is proof. Right now is an awesome time to help convert other families. I am also working on trying to get Ellen to feature cloth diapers on her show. I have a lot going into it. There are over 1,000 members on the facebook group I want to see Cloth Diapers on the Ellen Show. I see change coming! P&G picked the wrong time to F up this badly.... oh so sad lol

whoa! and they didn't write their horsemanure very well. they must have underpaid someone to write very bad copy. or..maybe it's actually from a copywriter stickin' it to 'em in some way, cause creatively it sounds so stupid no one could buy into it... i'll go with that and say

Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?

And the part about the study showing cloth is not more environmentally friendly is based on a UK study in which they assumed all CDers wash at 90 degrees, tumble dry 100% of the time, and IRON their CDs.
Wow. I've never met anyone who irons diapers.

So apparently disposable is better than cloth because P&G donates one-use menstrual pads to those stupid people in developing countries who don't know how to take care of themselves properly... (tongue firmly in cheek).

We should be careful though. If we all go around poking holes in this article, they'll re-write it more convincingly next time...

Thanks, i've had a quick check but i think it's only in the US and even though the local council does have a cloth nappy programme i think you just get 2 one size nappies and a cover or £20 off if you spend £50 or more.

BAAHAHAHAHAA!!!!

I actually knew someone who ironed her sheets but she had time to make her home a picture perfect home. That's what happens when you don't work and have a grown kid.

This was so preposterous to me that, as a writer who's written on the use of cloth diapers, I HAD to respond. I even made reference to Jennifer Margulis' piece on CDs in the last Mothering issue in this article I just published: http://gomestic.com/family/pampers-m...ts-a-critique/

Coming from the PR business, I think P&G just did themselves no favor. Putting the blame on the consumer is the worst possible step... But we will see how it pans out!

Ok, so Pampers thinks since I used Pampers for the first 6 months of DS's life and then switched to cloth and all his rashes disappeared I now take all my time to start rumors about Pampers... Hmmm yeah right. And their lovely myth and truth about cloth section... Wow. They must be really afraid of cloth diapering parents. I think though that the overall trend to be more ecofriendly is what scares them... More and more people are looking for alternatives.

And for the washing... I wash our pockets and prefolds on hot and dry them. We have HE LG washer & dryer though, and microfiber and pockets dry in no time, the prefolds get hung semidry. Our energy nor water bill didn't even change after the switch to cloth. And I certainly wouldn't iron diapers, Pampers, I don't even iron my clothes!!! Too much work... They can spin it as much as they want, but sposies will always use more resources and create huge landfills. It is so self-evident! And frankly, my reason to switch to cloth wasn't the environment. IT's all about my child's health and best interest.

Hey--Pampers just took this page down! Yeah, try to follow the link and the page is simply gone! Well, as the last post said, it is not in their best interest to have that argument!

We didn't hear about the chemical burns until after DD was a victim of them. My poor baby's bottom was covered in blisters. She couldn't even sit down. I've contacted Pampers and they essentially blamed me. We only used them for a week on vacation, and never again. I'm trying to not use and P&G products now.
