When it comes to diapers, most parents face a difficult choice. On the one hand, traditional disposable diapers are terrible for the environment, and can contain chemicals that may pose serious health risks. On the other hand, parents still need diapers that actually work and are convenient to use. And most healthier, eco-friendly diaper options don’t meet those criteria.

But with all the science and technology available to us, surely somebody can figure out how to make a disposable diaper that’s safer for babies and the planet, right? Well, here’s some good news. Thanks to a company called Healthybaby, today there is a healthy and environmentally friendly diaper solution.

Shazi Visram is a mom, entrepreneur, and activist on a mission to create healthier baby products. She started Happy Family Organics back in 2003, which is one of the best-selling organic baby foods on the market. Now she’s back with Healthybaby, a company that makes sustainable, plant-based diapers, wipes, skincare, and cleaning products that are 100 percent free of toxic chemicals linked to neurological health problems.

There aren’t many companies you can feel good about supporting, especially when it comes to personal care products. But Healthybaby has social responsibility built into its DNA. It’s a certified B Corp company, demonstrating a sustained commitment to equity, the environment, economic responsibility, and corporate accountability.

All Healthybaby diapers and wipes are EWG VERIFIEDTM, OEKO-TEX, and FSC certified, which means they don’t contain chemicals that may pose health or ecotoxicity concerns, and they are sustainably produced using practices that protect the world’s forests. Healthybaby diapers also use 100 percent organic cotton, which has a significantly smaller carbon footprint than regular cotton.

In short, if you’re looking for diapers, wipes, and other skincare products that are as good for the planet as they are for your baby, you need to know about Healthybaby.

"Today I got feeding support from the most unlikely of places, the most surreal moment of my life that had me in tears," Copeland wrote.

And where it certainly hasn’t been the worst loss, not having free samples at grocery stores has undoubtedly been a buzzkill.

Trader Joe’s, famous for its prepandemic sampling stations, has recently brought the tradition back to life, and customers are practically dancing through the aisles.

On the big comeback weekend, people flocked to social media to share images and videos of their free treats, including festive Halloween cookies (because who doesn’t love TJ’s holiday themed items?) along with hopeful messages for the future.
