Mabu Baby Eco-Diaper System Wins Fans Quickly as Moms Awestruck To Find Cloth Diaper Option at Walmart!

Mabu Naturals International Inc. proudly launches the all new Mabu Baby Eco-Diaper system in select Walmart stores across the U.S. The new diaper system offers parents a truly affordable, yet more eco-friendly diaper – with the option to choose whether to re-use like cloth or throw away like a disposable!

Co-founder, Cher-Anne Knightingale states, “As soon as our products hit the stores, with shelves not even fully stocked, we began hearing from moms. They immediately began sharing their excitement with each other and contacting us - thrilled to see that a cloth option is actually available in a big box store near them.”

Developed with mainstream consumers in mind, the Mabu Baby system can save families up to $50 or more a month by purchasing Mabu Baby washables versus brand name disposable diapers. “An affordable yet green diaper was our dream. Some parents are reluctant to change to cloth or aren’t aware this is an option to them. Many still want the convenience of a disposable when out of the home,” says Knightingale. "Now they have an affordable choice in one product.” Using Mabu for 30 months saves families between $1500 and $2500.00! As well, the Mabu Baby Eco-Diaper system costs from 20% to 50% less than other washable diapers currently on the market.

Mabu diapers go on easy like a disposable. The flexible system uses a snap-in diaper pad holder that you fit with a disposable or washable pad/insert. Moms have been posting how leak proof it is, too!

The Mabu Baby Eco Diaper offers both environmental and high tech advantages. The washable terry cloth pad’s outer surface is a soft white bamboo charcoal fabric which is cuddly to baby’s skin, wicks away wetness and dries very quickly after washing! The bio-liner makes removing solids and washing easier. When the disposable pads go to landfill, their volume is a fraction of disposables and leach no chemicals into the soil.

The washable insert's outer layer is called EcoWix™, a NEW and unique eco-polyester, exclusive to Mabu Baby. It’s made from certified 100% recycled plastic bottles and enhanced with natural bamboo white charcoal. The micro-gaps in the yarn provide much better absorption and wicking than in conventional fabrics and even help break down odor.

Finally, there’s a breathable, durable, super absorbent, washable eco-diaper that lets you choose to dispose or to re-use – that’s also affordable. Mabu Baby brings state-of-the-art, green technology to the change table, protecting your baby’s sensitive skin and looking out for the Earth.

By bringing an eco-diaper cloth system into Walmart, Mabu Baby is making it easier than ever for the average American family to switch to green diapers. Knightingale adds, "It has been really rewarding to watch our dream become reality and help fill a gap we knew was there. Moms across the country are affirming this to us every day!” Hear what fans have to say: Mabu Baby Fan Club, Facebook, Twitter
