“Our new disposable diapers are lined with nascent alpaca wool and fastened with amber gemstones, known for their ancient emotional cleansing properties,” the caption reads. “Infused with scents of jasmine and bergamot to energize babies.”
It wasn’t accepted, with one commenting that “At the same time, thousands of parents in America can’t even afford basic diapers.” Others just doubt it might be true because it’s too much.
“Goop created a lot of outrage by launching a pack of 12 luxury disposable diapers for $120. Good,” Paltrow said. “It’s meant to annoy us. Because if diapers as a luxury item drive you crazy, taxing them should also be like a luxury item.”
The headline urges people to donate to Baby2Baby “to help provide diapers, formula and other essentials to families in need.”
“Despite the absolute need for diapers, in 33 states they are not considered a necessity. They are considered a luxury. (We priced fictional diapers at $120 because that’s what a diaper tax might cost families ) every year),” the title continues. “Currently, many families in need are also struggling due to a nationwide shortage of formula.”
Those who believe it’s real can be forgiven for believing it, because Goop has had some nifty products before, like “This Smells Like My Vagina” candles and nearly $2,000 Ouija boards.
