New Dad Gets the "Poop" on Cloth Diapers
Peter Allen left corporate America a few years ago to start “Do Good Diapers
.” For $20 a week, parents can get about 60 diapers delivered to their home.
Do Good picks up their dirty ones to be washed back at their facility. Thousands go through the washer each week, but before that happens they are sorted based on their “degree of saturation.”
“Who gets that job?” I asked.
“We have a couple of great employees,” said Allen.
His reason for starting this also has to do with environment.
“Later on this year we will be hitting our one-millionth diaper. We track all the diapers that come in, we count them and that’s what we return to our customers. So we have a running tally of how many diapers we are keeping out of landfills,” said Allen.
