how many diapers does one tree make



  1. 0 Votes

    1.3 million tons of wood pulp are used to make disposable diapers every year. That’s 250,000 trees, although how much is in one diaper exactly i am not sure. This is because 80% of Americans use disposable diapers. 

    There are pros and cons to using both disposable and cloth diapers. They best way to choose what is right for your lifestyle and green values is to do as much research as possible. However, one important point to consider is that the average baby will use 8000 disposable diapers compared to 5 to 6000 cloth diapers. That significantly more, which definitely increases your carbon footprint.
