DriButts creates and distributes eco-friendly, re-usable diapers to developing countries.
Did you know that one of the leading causes of death in children under 5 is fecal related diseases including dysentery, cholera, typhus fever and typhoid? Over 80% of diseases in the world are due to poor sanitation and the most affected group is children. More than 2 million die each year from fecal-related diseases. Something as simple as a diaper can help lower the risk of illness or death from these diseases. That’s why DriButts Diapers were created. Dributts diapers save lives.
Michael Wahl, the founder of DriButts, was on a mission trip to Haiti to help build latrines in an area with no running water and no access to electricity. He noticed that all of the babies were naked and thus pooping on their caretakers, in their homes and near food and water sources. He saw the problem and the need to do something about it. After researching diapers he learned that typical cloth diapers would not be ideal because they are made of heavy materials like fleece, cotton and hemp. Disposable diapers were not an option either. Determined to find a suitable product, they created their own using Dri-Fit fabrics and more breathable materials and the DriButts diaper was born.
These eco-friendly reusable diapers dry quickly and don’t hold on to bacteria. The fully adjustable diapers which fit newborns to age 2 or 3 can be washed in a bucket with soap and water and hung to dry. The diaper is made of 2 parts: the outer shell and the insert. The outer shell is made of breathable Dri-Fit material.
The trifold insert is made of bamboo and other highly absorbent materials. The outer shell dries in only 20 minutes and insert in 45. DriButts diapers are absorbent and also help wick away any moisture.The bamboo insert features natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties to help prevent infections and the spread of bacteria.
