The Great Diaper Debate (from The Boston Globe)

The Great Diaper Debate

Many parents who want to lessen the environmental impact of raising a baby are choosing cloth over disposable diapers. Problem is, they may not always be making the greener choice.

Most parents will change diapers about SIX THOUSAND times in their baby's first two years. Deciding on whether to use cloth or disposable diapers is a lot harder than it should be. Everyone wants a straightforward and easy answer but none exists.

There are pros and cons to both cloth and disposable diapers. Disposable consume more room at landfills (up to 70 times more), but it takes considerable amounts of energy to transport, wash, and dry the cloth versions. A recent study by Britain's environmental agency actually found no significant environmental impact difference between the two after taking into account all of the variables.

Do you know about Modern Cloth Nappies? Many of them are now made from hemp or bamboo, which makes them much more environmentally friendly. They're also a whole lot easier to use than terry-towelling squares!
