Canadian and US cloth diaper manufacturers are proud to give back to their local communities, and as much as you can, I encourage you to support these businesses and do your own part to contribute to your own community. As you choose your cloth diapers, please consider the following list of Canadian and US cloth diaper manufacturers.
Congratulations on your decision and thank-you for supporting a Canadian or American mom's dream!
This list will likely never be complete, but I'd love to keep it up-to-date. If you know of a brand I've missed, please let me know and I would be happy to add it to the list. I love to find ways to support our own economy and keep jobs right here at home...and to encourage enterprising moms to pursue their dreams while giving back to their own communities!
Andrea Cote is the founder of Canadian-based AMP Diapers, and a mom
of five. She built her local cloth diaper business in response to her
friends' encouragement to make and sell her cloth diapers for others.
Affectionately referred to by her customers as Annie (the nickname her grandfather gave her), she says on her website, "I'm so happy to be able to offer my diapers to other cloth diapering families. I no longer sew all the products myself, I now have a wonderful team of men and women that work very hard making the highest quality products possible. Every AMP diaper is made right here in Winnipeg, MB, and our employees make a fair wage and work in comfortable and safe working conditions."
Like Andrea, there are countless other moms who responded to the need for high quality cloth diaper products. When demand for their diapers exceeds their own time and energy, each business owner has the choice to expand locally, or work with factories in far-away countries where labor is cheaper.
For many cloth diaper companies, it is an easy choice to keep
production here in North America, rather than outsourcing the
manufacturing jobs to other countries that may may not have the same
ethical and environmental standards we enjoy in North America. These
small businesses support the local economy and give back to their
communities, by building sustainable partnerships with other domestic
businesses, creating jobs, and fostering economic growth.
By buying cloth diapers that are made in Canada or made in the USA, you can help these small businesses to achieve their dreams and do your own part to help support our own economy.
It's a win-win...Canadian and American-made cloth diapers are the ultimate in quality, and are usually no more expensive than those made outside of North America. Never underestimate the impact can make: buying local diapers is another small way that you can make a big impact.
