Did you know that an estimated 27.4 billion diapers are used in the US each year and a staggering 3.75 million disposable diapers are used each day in Australia and New Zealand? That’s a lot of waste going into landfill!
Conventional nappies can take up to 150 years to break down. If you have a bub consider investing in good cloth ones instead. We know these are more expensive so we have had friends ask us to chip in for these for baby shower presents which is a great idea and gets you a good set of them. In many low-economic area this switch to disposable is more recent too so supporting education about the impacts and funding local organizations that provide reusables or teach previous methods is another great way of contributing. There are also cleaning services available in many cities if that helps you too.
