Need help QUICK!! Informative speech on cloth diapers in 2 1/2 hours!

I have to give an informative speech in 2 1/2 hours. I changed my topic at the last minute to cloth diapers. How do I keep it from sounding persuasive?! My main points were going to be how they are eco-friendly, save money, gentle on baby's skin. I'm thinking that sounds to persuasive though. I need help!!!

I dont think it sounds persuasive as long as it is factual.

Mention honestly some disadvantages, such as bulkyness, costs upfront, time for washing. Then people will believe the advantages. Of course also bring counter arguments!

Check out this link from my site... my business partner wrote it and it kind of gives the run down of "why cloth"... hope this helps. Good luck!!! Cool that you're doing that.

Some disadvantages that don't sound all that bad, but will make you sound less biased: you spend an additonal 30-40 minutes per week with loading/unloading diapers in the wash, folding, and putting away. Whereas people who buy sposies generally toss them in the cart while buying groceries.

Costs of laundering here in my home: $2/load of diapers (that's electricity and water for 4 water changes, detergent, and drying for 45 minutes). I wash twice a week. So $4/week or $400ish over 2 years.

HTH!

Thank you everyone!! I'm so glad I changed my topic to cloth diapers. I had no trouble talking about cloth. lol! It went smoother than I expected. I even had a girl ask me more about cloth diapers after the class.
