Canadian town offers cash incentives to use cloth diapers

Here in the U.S. we need to follow the lead of Vaudreuil-Dorion, an off-island town offering cash incentives to families willing to buy non-disposable diapers! And if you think people can't be bribed to consider cloth diapers, think again!

In March, $10,000 in municipal funds were allocated as part of a trial family to get up to 1,000 families to make the switch. While there are 31 Montérégie towns with similar programs, this particular trial program is only opened to Vaudreuil-Dorion citizens with babies 6 months and younger.

The program gives $100 to residents who buy a minimum of two dozen reusable cloth diapers. While the incentive certainly doesn't pay for a full-time stash of most styles of cloth diapers, it does go a good ways toward helping with the initial purchase!
