GOP complains about formula, yet 33 states tax disposable diapers as a luxury item.

.

Goop k-ray lady, Gwyneth Paltrow created a fake Goop Designer Diapers to highlight that diapers are treated as a luxury item.



Earlier this week, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle company posted a photo of its new disposable diaper, “The Diapér,” which cost $120 for a pack of 12.

Goop described the diaper on Instagram as lined “with virgin alpaca wool and fastened with amber gemstones, known for their ancient emotional-cleansing properties.”

The video’s caption urged people to donate to the organization Baby2Baby “to help provide diapers, formula, and other essentials to families in need.”

“Despite the absolute necessity of diapers, in 33 states, they aren’t treated as an essential item,” the caption read. “They’re taxed as a luxury good. (We priced our fictional Diapérs at $120, because that is what the diaper tax could cost families annually).”

4. Diapers are an environmental nightmare. The tax should go to environmental cleanup

Yes I understand they are a necessary evil.

2. diapers VS Formula

babies would die without formula and babies won't die if they don't get disposal able diapers. i suppose one could argue that there was a time when we didn't have formula but a lot has changed since that time.

3. What the????? We used to wash diapers in a river, too.

We used to have to get up to change the channel.

Now remotes are considered “essential”.

Speak for yourself on what’s essential.
