Pampers is named Best Diaper for Women’s Equality and Reproductive Rights in our SweetScore Recommends review of the Best Socially Conscious Diaper Companies by Kelly Black
Made in USA by Ohio based Procter and Gamble.
This is a popular disposable diaper specifically designed to be long lasting. If your little one sleeps a full 12 hours, this may be a good option for you.
Sadly, there is nothing we’re aware of that is particularly green or sustainable about they way these diapers are manufactured or about the materials used in it or in its packaging.
They are, at least, manufactured under US Federal and State environmental laws, and not under lax Chinese laws, as are diapers from companies that manufacture their diapers in China.
Points in favor of this product:
- Made in USA
- Popular, quality diaper
Points not in favor of this product:
- Maker (Procter and Gamble) is reported to be the third largest advertiser on Fox “News”
- Nothing about this diaper is particularly sustainable (e.g. neither diaper components themselves nor diaper packaging are said to be made of recycled materials)
- Maker’s headquarters location (Ohio) has been moving to aggressively restrict the reproductive rights of its citizens
- Of potential interest to those concerned about the ethics of the current administration and those in the GOP controlled Senate who support it, this product maker’s headquarters location (Ohio) boasts one GOP Senator and voted to elect DLT in 2016
