DriButts launched the #StopTheCrap Movement to raise awareness and funds to help reduce the amount of children that die from fecal related diseases and has been at work in Haiti. This is especially relevant in Haiti as there have been calls for increased regulation and enforcement of local and federal waste laws. (See Haiti in the Time of Trash, available at http://revista.drclas.harvard.edu/book/haiti-time-trash).  Products such as these, alongside government efforts, will assist in the progress of waste management and reduction of the health and environmental concerns that follow behind excessive and improper waste disposal.

They are achieving this goal through the use of cloth diapers. These cloth diapers are hi-tech and highly absorbent, using bamboo material. Bamboo cloth diaper inserts are very soft and are known to quickly heal diaper rash. Cloth diapers are also helpful in eliminating plastic diaper waste. 

This is no news to crunchy mothers in the United States who have chosen to use cloth diapers to also save money. The diapers are an investment that can be shared from child to child when washed and cared for properly.

Dributts diaper works in extreme environments with hot climates and where there is no running water or electricity. It is breathable and lightweight, allowing air to flow. It absorbs urine and wicks away moisture.

“The bamboo insert has natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, so it helps prevent infection. It is adjustable and designed to fit a newborn through age two, and it may fit a small three years old. The diaper can be washed in a bucket with soap and water and should be hung up to dry. The outer shell dries in about twenty minutes and the insert dries in about forty-five minutes. The diaper is reusable and lasts the baby through three years of age and, it can be used for multiple babies.”
