The diaper market is overflowing with new products. There are more biodegradable diapers, non-toxic diapers and organic diapers than ever before, and this is great news for our babies. While parents and carers are becoming more aware of the toxins lurking in our baby diapers, do we ever think about where our baby’s diapers are made?
More of us want to buy products made in the USA, partly for environmental reasons, and partly to support American business.
So which baby brands make their diapers right here in the US? While most disposable diapers on the market are made in China, some brands make a conscious effort to use as many materials sourced in the US as possible, and manufacture their diapers right here too.

Where are honest diapers made?
When it comes to where Honest’s diapers are manufactured, things aren’t clear. The brand tells us that many of its products are made in China. It might seem like their diapers are included in this, but, in fact, they’re not; their diapers are made in a facility in Mexico.
Their wipes and diaper caddies are made in China, with the brand saying that their team are ‘very hands-on’ to make sure the manufacturing process adheres to the brand’s standards. For example, Honest says they ensure top quality materials are sourced close to the factories themselves to reduce the need for transport.
The brand also says they recycle all scraps and waste materials.

The diaper market is overflowing with new products, which is great news for parents and little ones alike. But where are all these diapers being made? Is it in the US, or around the world?
The further your diapers have to travel, the more energy is used. So it’s no wonder many parents and carers prefer to buy diapers made in the US. And not just for environmental reasons, but for economic reasons too.
So which baby brands make their diapers right here in the US?
Some of the biggest brands, like Kirkland, Pampers and Up & Up are made right here in the US. That’s great, but we’ve got to look at more than where a diaper is made. It’s just as important – if not more important – to look at what’s inside a diaper.
Pampers diapers might be effective, but they’re packed with toxins that are potentially harmful for our little ones’ sensitive skin. Plus, most Pampers varieties don’t boast any eco-friendly materials or features, like some more forward-thinking brands do. And it’s not just Pampers who are guilty of this. Many of the US-made brands contain toxins, including Kirkland and Up & Up.

It’s interesting that some of the most eco-friendly and skin safe brands, including Eco Pea, Ecoriginals and Dyper, are made in China. These diapers aren’t just free of harsh chemicals like fragrances and chlorine – they’re made with a high percentage of plant-based materials too.
So are there any skin-healthy or eco-friendly brands made in the USA?
Hello Bello is one of my favorite non-toxic brands, steering clear of nasty chemicals and providing skin-safe products for our little ones. They’re not biodegradable, like Ecoriginals, Dyper and Eco Pea, but they’re made with some plant-based materials. The fact that they’re made here in the US is the cherry on top!
