Why when it comes to being green, the diaper debate really isn’t one.
Sometimes it’s easy being green. Take diapers for example. By simply choosing cloth parents help prevent clogging landfills with diapers that can take up take up to 500 years to biodegrade. Adria Vasil, author of Ecoholic elaborates. “The average child goes through five to seven thousand diapers in their lifetime. That’s a lot of diapers for one kid. So if you want to move away from that and you want to move away from the 250 thousand trees that go into making the cellulose for those diapers in North America every year, then you might want to consider cloth.”Cloth diapers are free of the many chemicals contained in disposables and they can be quite chic! “They make all kinds with Velcro tabs and elastic bands, some out of terrycloth, some organic fabric, even hemp and you can find them at any major department store or get organic ones on-line. And if you’re really busy parent, then you can also order a diaper service.”
