“Reusable or disposable?” may be the most important health/environment decision parents can make.
Until the 1970s, everyone used and reused cloth diapers, which are still available through diaper services. Now, your average baby goes through 5,000 landfillable diapers—each one leaking mercury and dioxins (chlorine) into our water supply, which accumulate in animals and humans and up asthma and cancer rates.
Still wedded to the convenience of disposables? Get these hypo-allergenic, dermatologist tested, latex-and dioxin-free diapers. The next seven generations will say, “ugga bugga.”
