Save time and the environmental impact on the planet by using diaper liners instead of disposable diapers!
From birth to toilet training, a baby goes through an average of 8000 diaper changes! This sheer volume of diapers makes one thing clear: The choice of diapering products and diapers (cloth vs. disposable) has a tremendous impact on the welfare of your baby and the planet!
Disposable diapers use 1.3 million tons of wood pulp (a quarter-million trees) each year, along with plastics, which are made from petroleum resources.
Disposable diapers consist of a plastic exterior, an inner super-absorbent layer treated with chemicals, and a liner. One commonly used absorbent chemical, sodium polyacrylate, can trigger allergic reactions.
Disposable diapers may also contain dyes and dioxin, a carcinogenic by-product of the chlorine bleaching process.
It is very important to try to limit your children's exposure to harmful chemicals. Children are more vulnerable to the effects of toxic chemicals than adults. Their immune systems and central nervous system are immature and still developing, which means their bodies are generally less capable of eliminating toxins.
In addition, children have roughly double the skin surface of adults per unit of body weight, so a child can absorb proportionally more chemicals. Adult skin absorbs up to 60% of the ingredients (including the synthetic and toxic chemicals) found in the personal care products used on a daily basis. Imagine the impact on your child's skin and health!
Organically grown, unbleached cotton diapers offer the healthiest, environmentally friendly option.
If busy lives demand disposables, you can use disposable diaper liners, which mean that you won't have to soak the diapers before washing. Diaper liners are usually available where cloth diapers are sold. You can also turn to environmentally-friendly disposable diapers.
