What we are doing to make LolliDoo as green as possible

Right Now
  • We use new machine motors that consume 63% less energy than traditional clutch-motors
  • Our packaging is made from printer waste and 100% reused
  • LolliDoo Diapers are recycled, recyclable and reusable, and all cotton is certified organic
  • Our office paper is recycled and we use both sides and recycle what we don't need to keep
  • Fabric scraps are made into Mama Pads (coming soon)
  • We designed our diapers so that they dry quickly on the line or in the dryer
  • LolliDoo Diapers wash beautifully in cold water
  • All printed materials that we distribute are printed on recycled paper with vegetable based inks
  • Instead of mailing retailers information, we are using email as often as possible
  • LolliDoo Diapers are shipped in recycled cardboard boxes
  • All textile components of LolliDoo® Diapers come from the United States. Buying products made in the USA supports our local economy by providing jobs, which support families and generate domestic spending. Buying domestic also reduces the environmental impact by eliminating energy to ship goods internationally.
  • Certified organic cotton is soft against baby’s skin and is highly absorbent. Certified organic cotton fibers are grown using safe and sustainable practices that respect both the earth and baby‘s health. Fibers are turned into textiles using eco-friendly processing that does not compromise workers’ health and reduces water, electricity and toxic runoff.
  • Recycled fleece is a smooth, supple fleece produced from recycled beverage bottles. Recycled fleece is a low pill fleece that exceeds all industry standards for strength, shrinkage and color fastness. Recycling protects natural resources and saves space in landfills: Recycled fleece enables billions of plastic containers to be recycled each year, instead of them being buried in a landfill.

In the future:

Our main "green" goal is to sustain ourselves on wind and solar power while powering up neighboring low income housing with our surplus wind and solar energy.

Did you know?

The amount of water used to launder cloth diapers at home is about 50 to 70 gallons of water every 2-3 days; this is about the same as a toilet-trained child or adult flushing the toilet five to six times a day.

It is illegal for solid waste to enter our landfills, so even disposable diapering families should put the poo in the potty.
