GroVia Bonanza and Rockin' Green test drive

Hello cloth mamas!
I know, I's been a while. I've been delinquent. Dear baby is teething and ill with Roseola, which of course, has been cutting into my blog time.
This is just a quick post to let everyone know about the great sale that GroVia has authorized at all of their retailers for the entire month of April. If you buy three GroVia diapers- the shells (diaper covers), shell sets (diaper cover + insert) or all-in-ones, you get one diaper free. I heard from a little bird that GroVia is discontinuing their shell sets, which are an excellent value, so if you are thinking of getting them, now is the time to buy. Check with your local diaper retailer to make sure that they're in on the sale and get shopping, mamas!

In other news- I was at my local diaper retailer this evening and I noticed that they were selling sample sized packs of Rockin' Green. Previously, I didn't know these were available. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I use Claudia's Choices detergent, which is a great brand. I've been eyeing up the Rockin' Green lately because A) It comes in a hard water formula (and I have hard water) and B) It comes in delish fragrances. I've been hesitant to buy a bag because it's $22 for a medium sized bag that wouldn't last me half as long as Claudia's does. My dear baby is 6 1/2 months old and I'm still using the first pail that I bought before he was born. So imagine my pleasure when I saw that I could try it out with a single-use packet that sells for $1.75 at my diaper retailer. Perfect! I picked up three single-use packets in the Hard Rock formula (for hard water) in the fragrances "Motley Clean", "Smashing Watermelons" and "Mighty Mighty Marshmallow". I'll post a review at the end of the week to let everyone know what I thought of this boutique detergent, so stay tuned!

  1. I bought mine from
    $20.00 for the shell and liner combo. Bought 2 and they are really nice, now that they have more colours, might buy a couple more!

    Do you know an Ontario retailer that is doing the spring fling sale?

  2. Hi Knitty Kitty,

    Caterpillar Baby has a store front in the GTA, I phoned them this morning to find out about the sale, but wasn't able to get through. I know that my Gro-Via retailer, Re-Diaper ( is participating in the sale, however that is in Hamilton, which is a bit of a trek for you. I also phoned Diaper-eez in Toronto, but the clerk was unaware of a sale, her manager will be returning my call later on today. Diaper-eez tends to be out to lunch at times when it comes to maintaining stock and staying in the loop, but you never know. There is another Gro-via retailer in Markham called So Green Baby- I'm waiting for a returned call from them as well, so I will keep you posted!

  3. Knitty Kitty,

    Just got off the phone with Caterpillar Baby. They are participating in the sale and you'll see the advert on the website either later on tonight or tomorrow morning. xo

  4. Thanks, I haven't really found diaper-eez to be terribly helpful. Need covers for my newborn diapers that were a gift from my sister-in-law.
    Who knew that diaper shopping could be so exciting?!?!
