Gwyneth Paltrow’s $120 Disposable Diapers Aren’t What You Think

“Our new disposable diaper lined with pure alpaca wool and fastened with amber gemstones, known for their ancient emotional cleansing properties,” read the caption. “Infused with a scent of jasmine and bergamot for a revitalized baby.”

It was not embraced, with one person commenting, “Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of parents in the US can’t even afford basic diapers.” Some others simply doubted it could be true because it was so exaggerated.

Paltrow was soon released in a video posted to the account Thursday, in which he explained that the diapers were a publicity stunt to draw attention to an important issue facing many families.

“Goop launched a deluxe disposable diaper for $120 for a pack of 12 and there was a lot of outcry. Good,” Paltrow said. “It was meant to piss us off. Because if treating diapers as a luxury drives you crazy, so should taxing them as a luxury.”

The 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 are not treated as an essential item. They are taxed as a luxury good. (We have priced our fictitious diapers at $120 because that is what the diaper tax could cost families annually.” ),” the caption continued. “At the moment many families in need are also struggling due to the nationwide shortage of formulas.”

Those who thought it was real can be forgiven for believing it, as Goop has had some nice products before, such as a “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle and a nearly $2000 Ouija board.
