When she doesn't use cloth diapers she'll use these, Nature Baby Care Diapers.
These diapers are breathable and chlorine free with natural based material, Ultra-thin, Consumer pack based on natural renewable material, no oil based platics used, does not contribute to dioxin pollution, 100 % compostable back sheet, No latex and fragrance, or TBT (tributyl tin).
Its tough when you are green to find diapers that are disposable if you just cannot stomach using cloth diapers or you are in a position where cloth isn't an option. Like on a plane for instance! These diapers are compostable and do not include anything like TBT or chlorine that could make your baby break out.
Consider again how harmful disposable diapers our to our Environment or to your baby:
- Its estimated that 27.4 billion disposable diapers are consumed every year in the U.S.
- Over 92% of all disposable diapers end up in a landfill
- About 5 million tons of untreated body excrement, which may carry over 100 intestinal viruses, is brought to landfills via disposables. Which can contaminate our drinking water and attract bugs that could carry viruses.
- It takes 3.4 billion gallons of oil and over 250,000 trees a year to manufacture disposables
- The super absorbent chemical, sodium polyacrylate, absorbs and holds fluids in the diaper. This chemical has been linked to toxic shock syndrome, can cause allergic reactions, and is lethal to cats if inhaled. Death has occurred from ingestion of just 5 grams of this chemical.
- 54% of one-month old babies using disposable diapers had rashes, 16% had severe rashes. A survey of Procter & Gamble’s own studies show that the incidence of diaper rash increases from 7.1 percent to 61 percent with the increased use of throwaway diapers, great for manufacturers of diaper rash medicines.
So why is considering how you diaper your baby important? Well, for one consider having poo-poo in your drinking water. Or mosquitoes or any other bug landing on you after it has feasted on some poo from a dirty diaper.
Not to mention all the virgin trees they use just to MAKE diapers! Remember trees are important because they help clean our air, provide shade and homes for our little animal friends. Obviously trees do more then that, but you get the idea.
So consider what you are buying these days and what goes on your baby's bum!
