Promoting the Cloth Diaper Industry

Diaper Service Benefits

A cloth diaper service is engaged in the primary business of a subscription-type service, which must include the distribution, collection, and washing of re-usable cloth diapers. (See Bylaws for eligibility details.)

If you support the mission and values of Real Diaper Industry Association and you promote reusable cloth diapers as the primary choice for babies, join the trade association to build your business. 

3 Top Benefits for Cloth Diaper Services


Customers want reassurance that their diapers are clean and safe. By participating in the RDIA accreditation program and testing diapers washed in your service, you help build trust with your customers. Accreditation makes your business stand out.

Cloth Diapers in Hospitals & Daycares

You are in the business of washing diapers. Most diaper services provide diapers for one baby at a time. If you wash diapers for a hospital or daycare, you not only build your business with a much bigger customer, you reach the parents who will be interested in diaper service when they take baby home. RDIA has tools to help you market to daycares, plus we are working on a project to develop similar materials to market to hospitals and birthing centers. Join in this project and let's together make the business model a reality.

All-in-one Cloth Diapers

Simple prefolds are popular in diaper services, but many customers want all-in-one (AIO) diapers for the convenience. RDIA diaper services are working with cloth diaper manufacturers to create an all-in-one that can stand up to industrial washing to give your customers the easy diapers they want, while you get the long-lasting diapers you need.
