Cool go green pocket diapers

A friend just sent me a link for these diapers and ill admit the price and color options make them tempting. Has anyone tried them? I cant find many reviews that isnt tied in with giveaways on google.

From what I understand, these are similar to (maybe even identical) to imported pockets being sold on eBay. I've never tried any of those diapers so no experience. I've read that the quality is low on eBay pocket diapers.

Yeah plus the GGs have lots of cute prints, which makes them very tempting! When we first started using CDs, I had trouble stomaching the prices too.

If you're thinking about OS pockets w/PUL on the outside, I highly recommend finding a company w/a good product guarantee. I like pocket diapers w/fleece as the wet-resistant fabric, and my fav "name brands" are Preston's Pants and Green Acre Designs (not OS). Good luck!

If you want cheaper pockets check out Tweedlebugs ($12.95) and Kawaiis ($10-$14 I think). I've used both and they both work just as well as my more expensive pockets.

Re: go green pocket diapers

yeah they are the same as the ebay diapers with just a different tag.

I have seen good reviews and bad. It is either you love them or you hate them. I got a few off ebay just like them for my cousin to try she is a young teen mom and can't afford much esspecially with no job.

Re: go green pocket diapers

They are just more of those cheap ebay diapers. If you look at the pictures of the diapers there are other "brand" labels on over 1/2 of them. Then if you look at the pictures of the insides you will see three different diapers. One of them even shows square tabs (like Fuzzibunz) but none of their diapers even have square tabs.

I have seen quite a few of these types of sites lately. I think pretty much anybody can buy a bunch of these diapers and then sell them under their own name. Actually in their Our Story section they prety much say just that:

"There's got tobe a cheaper way to get pocket diapers, I thought- and then I found them, high-quality diapers for half the price! In fabulous colors no less! I gave the pocket diapers to all my friends and they LOVED them. People kept asking me how to buy them, and that's how this website came about. I wanted to make it really easy for everyone to get these wonderful diapers."

Personally, I would stay away from them.

Re: go green pocket diapers

I was looking at the GG website for some type of warranty and I came across something in the FAQ that seems disturbing and, for some reason, bugged me. The FAQ (copied)

Quote:
Where are your diapers made?

Our company is proudly a WAHM-owned business in the USA and we are continually adapting our products to meet the needs of moms like us. We generate our product designs in-house, and these designs are manufactured into products fairly and conscientiously by our fantastic manufacturer in China.

Some related manufacturing information:

Companies that manufacture in the USA (courtesy AllAboutClothDiapers.com)

Companies that utilize manufacturers in China for some of all of their products:

Fuzzi Bunz

Grovia

Bum Genius Flip

Rumparooz

Doopsy

Babylegs

Carters

Bummis (Litewrap, Cot'n Wrap)

Kushies (sleeper, toys)

Haute Pockets

Softbums

Tiny Tush

...and more...

Here's all I could find about the return policy:

Quote:
15 day Wash 'n Wear Return Policy! Use our diapers for two weeks and if you don't LOVE them by the end of 15 days, send 'em back for a refund.
