How the diapers came to be…
The reusable diaper project was born following the distribution of disposable diapers by WingWoman Lebanon.
We asked parents what happens when they run out of diapers.
Their responses were shocking, demonstrating how limited their options were. Parents explained that they would typically try to extend the life of the disposable diapers by washing and reusing them. They might also switch to old cloth and plastic bags.
Clearly disposable diapers were not the solution to the problems being faced by the Lebanese community. It was time for organizations to listen and take action.
A chance encounter led us to a talented seamstress who could see the value that a reusable diaper could bring to her community. From her bedroom in Geitawi, she set about developing a product that would meet people’s needs. After numerous iterations and pilot studies we developed a high-quality prototype.
Our reusable diapers are now distributed all over Lebanon.
