3 ways to Green Your Diapers
With concerns about water use, petroleum in plastics, landfill waste, toxic chemicals, air and water pollution, pesticides...not to mention baby's health...what's a green parent to do when it comes to diapering the little ones? The answer's not an easy one, but GreenYour can help you find a solution that works for you.
Biodegradable, chlorine-free, and flushable diapers are greener alternatives in diapering if you go the disposable route.
It takes two trees per year to keep one baby in disposable diapers, yet the conventional cotton used to make traditional cloth diapers is heavily treated with pesticides and other chemicals.
Eco-friendly baby wipes—either reusable organic cloth or alternative disposable varieties—create less waste, keep chemicals off of baby’s skin and out of the environment, and may save parents money.
