Is it time to apologize for your baby''s piling?
On Wednesday, Gwyneth Paltrows'' luxurious wellness organization announced that it was launching The Diaper a new disposable diaper with virgin alpaca wool and amber gemstones, known for their ancient emotional-cleansing properties priced at $120 for a 12-pack adolescent.
After all, this is the same organization that brought us a $75 vagina-scented candle, a 24k-gold sex toy, and ridiculous but amazing gift guides with suggestions costing up to six figures.
Is this a SNL skit, while one person commented on Instagram, while another asked if it''s April fools day?
In a press release, the famously bougie brand claimed on Wednesday night that only one box of precious diapers exists, claiming that they aren''t really for sale.
Goop wanted to start a conversation about how much diapers they pay for sharing. Despite the fact that diapers are expensive, they are not valued as an essential item. They are taxed as a luxury good. This sales tax can increase between 1.5 and 7 percent to their costs.
The faux Goop diapers were priced at $120, because that''s how much the diaper tax would cost families yearly.
In an Instagram video, Paltrow said, "Good. It was intended to plummet us off, because if treating diapers like a luxury makes you mad, so you should tax them like a luxury."
Goop is partnering with Baby2Baby to push for a change in the diaper tax, with donations to the org also helping families affected by the formula shortage and other family issues.
