4.1 million tons of single-use disposable plastic diapers with human waste and chemicals are thrown in our landfills each year. The chemicals and materials used to make single-use diapers takes hundreds of years to decompose. The negative impact this has on our environment could be drastically reduced with the use of cloth diapers.
Chances are if your using single-use disposable diapers you are not properly disposing the waste. Yes, even with single-use disposable diapers human waste should be flushed. So, if flushing is a concern with using cloth, it shouldn't be. With cloth diapers your baby could be potty trained much sooner which means much less time with diapers.
Babies could use up to 6000 in their first few years. Cloth diapers are less expensive and babies tend to be potty trained faster. When a baby wets their cotton diaper they respond to it. If they don't know they are wet due to chemicals and gels and other unnatural products in disposable diapers potty training time can more than double.
Wouldn't you rather prefer a cotton fabric directly on your skin all day & night verses a plastic material with unnatural products. Cotton is soft, comfortable and breathable. It's naturally absorbent and helps evaporate potentially irritating ammonia that occurs when a baby wets.
