Why Consider Cloth Diapers?
100% of disposable diapers have yet to decompose in landfills.
It is estimated that it takes 500 years for a disposable diaper to break down. That means every single, non-reusable diaper ever used is sitting exactly as it was the day it was thrown away.
Even one cloth, reusable diaper change is one less disposable in the landfill. Cloth diaper full time, part-time, or only sometimes and you still make a huge eco-friendly impact saving Earth’s precious resources.
Statistics from a 1998 study done by the Environmental Protection Agency
- Approximately 20 billion diapers are thrown into US landfills each year
- Disposable diapers made up 3.4 million tons of waste a year
- That means disposable diapers could circle the earth 90X!
Even part-time cloth diaper use lowers that number drastically. Small changes have a BIG impact.
