Just the other day I talked to you about the huge plastic bag waste problem we have on our planet. It is shocking to think about...It is even more shocking to think about the disposable diaper waste problem we have. Check out these sad stats:
Disposable diapers use 2 times as much water to manufacture as cloth.
Disposables use 3 times more energy than cloth.
Disposables use 20 times more raw materials than cloth.
Disposables generate 60 times more waste than cloth.
Disposables are the 3rd largest single consumer item in landfills. Oh my!!
No one knows how long it takes for a disposable diaper to decompose, but it is estimated to be about 250-500 years.
If that isn't reason alone to consider switching to cloth diapers, then there is also the fact that you will save yourself money and be putting a safer, healthier product on your baby's booty.
My new favorite cloth diaper that I would recommend to all cloth diapering families, newbies and those of you who have used cloth diapers before, is from Lotus Bumz.
The diaper I received from this great company (started by a mom looking to help other moms) is one of my favorites because it is so cute, very simple to use, and it is ultra soft for your baby's comfort.
Besides how comfy it is, this diaper works great too! It has hip snaps to prevent the sides from drooping, and it has a 3 layer microfiber insert to keep all messes inside. As for ease of use, it is a winner in that category too. It has three rows of adjustable snaps to allow for you to continue to use it as your baby grows. The insert is easy to slide in and out too.
