The Bottom Line

You’ve switched to stainless steel sippy cups and you shop the local farmers market gro_baby3 kiwiin an effort to green your kiddo’s lifestyle, but one place you just haven’t gone yet is…cloth diapers. The hassle, the smell, the mess. Or not?

Not, according to Angela Powell, mom of two, and founder of the just-launched the BumRite Cloth Diaper Co. After making the switch herself and concluding how easy it was, she decided to create BumRite as a way to break down the objections to cloth diapering and make the process a breeze for others. On her website, the Napa resident shares a glossary of terms, her top 10 reasons to choose cloth, and a handy “How Do I Start?” guide  which includes a peek into her own personal stash of diapering supplies. BumRite offers a good mix of diaper brands, covers, and wipes for sale, including many products made with organic cotton, and Powell loves to personally answer questions from her clients and encourage their baby steps towards a greener lifestyle. Bay Area parents who want to learn more (and see the products in person) are invited to an open house and gift show Oct. 15 from 9:30-12:30 p.m. at Scientopia Discovery Center in Napa.

Eco-friendly and economical, BumRite wants to change they way we diaper our babies…one bum at a time.
