Reason #1: Venties AirCovers offer amazing breathability
Venties AirCovers™ use a technical fabric that includes a porous, waterproof membrane (like Gore-Tex®) that allows your baby to stay comfortable and dry. Above is a diagram showing a microscopic view of the Venties AirCover fabric (left), and polyurethane (PU)-coated fabric (right), which is used in other waterproof diaper covers.
As you can see, Venties AirCover fabric allows moisture vapour molecules from a baby's body and diaper to escape.
Reason #2. AirCovers are leakproof
Although moisture vapour can escape, liquids remain inside the diaper because water molecules are too big to escape the waterproof-breathable membrane. There is never any worry about the cover leaking through or 'sweating out' as there might be with a wool or fleece diaper cover.
Reason #3. AirCovers are easy to use
'Easy' is one of our core values. Cloth diapering should be as easy and simple as possible so that changing your baby is a pleasure.
So what makes our diaper covers 'easy'?
- they can be machine washed and dried
- they wash up well with normal detergents
- they have a simple design that can be used it with minimal instruction
- they don't leak (the waterproof-breathable membrane, gussets, and proper fit help with this)
- they're made of sturdy, long-lasting materials that continue to look and feel good after lots of washing
Reason #4. They're a responsible choice
Just like the little people they were intended for, Venties products leave a small footprint.
When you use our cloth diapers:
- Far less waste enters the landfill—disposable diapers for one child until potty training will occupy about 340 cubic feet of landfill space*—that's a little less than the volume of the drum of a concrete mixer (source).
- Far less money is spent—it costs about $2,200 to put one child through disposable diapers to potty training**. It costs about $1,500 with Venties cloth diapers. Also note that Venties can be re-used for multiple children, so the cost savings is compounded ($4,400 and $6,600 for two and three children in disposables vs. a steady $1,500 for cloth diapers for any number of babies).
*Assumes the diaper is 6"x 6" x 3", and that you are using 6 diapers a day for 2.5 years.
**Assumes you are using 6 diapers a day for 2.5 years, with a box of 74 diapers costing $30.
