A huge thank you to all families who have chosen to cloth diaper their children! Both David and I at Wonderwear take pride in our small role towards helping reduce deforestation by offering an alternative to disposable diapers. We take the work out of cloth diapering while saving you money vs disposables!

At Wonderwear, we are very conscious of our carbon footprint. Our latest technology washers and dryers are the most energy efficient available ensuring less water/energy use and our vehicles use bluetec technology to reduce carbon emissions.
