Updated Post (Aug 25th, 2012) The Envibum website is now down and there are online claims from people saying that they paid for diapers and never received anything. I didn’t have any issues with their company personally but I have read the Facebook threads and comments (some here). Please use caution if you deal with them or hear that they are back in business again!
Companies that give back and help others are always on my top list to feature. Envibum is one of them and I admire them for sharing and giving back! Every time you make a purchase through Envibum they donate to an organization like the Salvation Army, Food for the Hungry, Homes of Hope and more. Each organization has a diaper color assigned and if you purchase their color they will donate to that specific organization. Inspirational!
I received one of their “envipolka” one size, all in one diapers to review. I really like One Size diapers because it makes sense not to have to purchase new diapers every time your child outgrows the one size. Envibum diapers are great because you can use the from 8-40lbs. I found that they fit my son perfectly. I like that the velcro really sticks hard, making it difficult for him to open the diapers himself.
I really like the outer Minkee fabric of the diaper and its design. It feels so soft and it looks so cuddly! Before trying the diaper out I washed it once and it was ready to go.
The inside of the diaper is made of unbleached 100% cotton with “waffle” like absorbancy channels. The inner surface doesn’t feel as soft as a fleece lined diaper would and I didn’t think it would feel that comfortable in contact with his skin. I decided to flip out the pad that is attached to the diaper so he had contact with that instead of the absorbancy channels.
What I like about the flip out pad and pocket option is that the diaper dries a lot faster than other AIOs when washing and that I can add an extra insert for more absorbency if needed. I had a great experience with them for day time and nap time use. I tried it for night time and I had to add one insert inside of the pocket. It didn’t leak with the extra insert but it was a bit too bulky so I don’t think I will be using it at night anymore.
In general I really liked the diaper. I love the unique design and high quality materials and recommend to give them a try.

I for one would love to demand where this company is currently opperating. After being investigated by both PayPal and the BBB for scam activity, I am amazed that they have even dared show their faces in the cloth diapering business after scamming many people out of so much of their hard earned money. There was even a facebook group dedicated to trying to recover money for so many of the parents who gave up hundreds of dollars for stashes of Envibums, only to receive no word, and no product. This truly breaks my heart that that woman is even trying to get back into business after hurting so many people. Giving to charities? I doubt it.
I do apologize in that I thought this was posted this year (2012) and I am glad to see it wasn’t. Still, this was around the time I was scammed by Envibum (August ’12) and I did my damnedest to try to help families get their money back when possible, mostly without success. It angers me greatly that they were off giving away free product after taking my money and refusing me mine.
OMG Anastasia, I had no idea about all of this! I run the giveaway with them and they actually sent the prize to my winner 🙁 That’s so horrible to hear that they took money from people and never sent anything to them! I saw their website is no longer active. Do you know what happened? Why they closed their business and never refunded any money?
