We're a vegan cloth diapering family and I recently purchased an upcycled wool soaker for my son to wear overnight (made by a work at home mom using an old sweater). Works 100% better than the fleece covers I have in keeping him dry and rash-free overnight. I'm semi-torn about this - I didn't purchase a new item, there's definitely a green benefit here. Do any other vegan cloth diapering parents have any thoughts on this? Would you purchase used or hand-me down items for other purposes if they weren't vegan?

Do what you feel comfortable with. You aren't directly supporting the industry, and it's eco friendly, so it's all good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I love upcycling, though I try to do it with vegan stuff, doesn't mean you have to though.

I agree with 4everaspirit. And if you're able to pass it on after as well, that's even better. The environmental benefits of cloth diapers are tremendous.

I see no problem with this whatsoever. Especially if it works. Wool is the one non vegan thing I will buy thrifted. I don't seek it out and really have only bought one sweater in the last few years that was 10% wool in a thrift store. I won't buy silk or leather even used. I found a tutorial online for making a kitty bed out of an old wool sweater. So if I found one, I'd buy it in a thrift store without guilt and make the kitty bed from it.

Thanks you guys! I am definitely passing along my stash of cloth diapers when my son doesn't need them anymore (I've bought used diapers for him as well, I had no idea before I started that people even did this!). Very cool.
