Saving the planet from disposable diapers

Durango woman takes on Pampers from her Crestview sewing machine
Susan Atkinson currently makes all the diapers for High 5 Diapers from upcycled cloth from garments such as towels and T-shirts that she gets from Durango thrift stores and from towels being tossed by motels and hotels.
High 5 Diapers are designed to be as troublefree as possible. Susan Atkinson decided to use Velcro to secure the diapers because it was the simplest to use for parents.
Susan Atkinson said her research indicates that disposable diapers are the third-biggest product by volume disposed of in landfills, and she says they take 500 years to decompose.
A typical starter kit from High 5 Diapers comes with three or four outer shells in different sizes to accommodate a growing baby and 24 soaker pads.
