From our friend Matt over at greenUPGRADER...a nice post on all the municipal crap from diapers...(plus pictures of funny babies).
50 years ago everyone used cloth diapers, but in the early 1960’s towards the end of the baby boom, disposable diapers hit the scene to take care of the increasing amount of baby “boom boom” that these amorous new parents were dealing with. Today 95% of families use disposable diapers. At the tune of 5000 to 8000 diapers per child that ads up to 3.6 tons of dirty diapers (2.1% of America’s municipal solid waste). That’s a lot of Sh*t!
With all that poop piling up in the landfills people started to question the environmental impact and a largely potty partisan battle began between the cloth and disposable diaper industries… and the cloth vs disposable debate rages on.
