Diaper Junction Debuts Cloth Diapering Service
HAMPTON ROADS, VA, June 8, 2011 - Diaper Junction has announced the debut of its new cloth diaper laundering service in Hampton Roads, Virginia. Customers receive a set of clean cloth diapers, a hamper and a waterproof reusable bag. The weekly service picks up dirty diapers and leaves clean ones in their place for approximately $19 per week, depending on the monthly plan.
Diaper Junction sells supplies for cloth diapering. Parents buy them online or in person and do the laundering themselves. Diaper Junction received many local requests for a laundering service, something that the area has not seen in more than 20 years. The service now caters to local parents that don't have the time or the desire to wash their own diapers. Chesapeake Service Systems, a local non-profit organization which employs adults with disabilities, handles the laundering of the cotton reusable diapers.
"We have been in the cloth diaper retail business for eight years. We feel that cloth diapers are healthier," said Bryana Guckin, president of Diaper Junction. "There are no chemicals like what you find in disposable diapers. Cloth diapers are healthier for the environment and keep disposable diapers out of landfills. They are also cheaper, because babies potty train six months sooner than those in disposable diapers."
For parents who are unsure about taking on cloth diapering full-time, Diaper Junction offers a week-long Test Drive program. Customers receive everything included in the regular service with no further obligation if they decide it's not for them.
"Moms can get their feet wet without laying out the extra money," said Guckin. "We know that cloth diapers are not the norm these days, so we want people to be comfortable with what they're getting into."
