Are degradable disposable diapers still bad for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    The disposable diaper industry uses some components that are not currently biodegradable. About 85% of the volume in a used diaper is actually biodegradable (wood pine pulp, chemically identical to tissue paper, and urine or feces); however, unless it is disposed of properly, it is very likely that it will not decompose.

    Cloth diapers are environmentally friendly. It is estimated to take 550 years for a diaper to decompose! Cloth diapers will also save a great amount of money, since they can be reused over and over again.
