In celebration of Earth Day (and, subsequently, Earth Month), we should all take a moment to do a fist pump for, well, ourselves.
According to Treehugger.com, an average baby goes through 5,000 – 8,000 diapers during the time before potty-training. “The United States alone produces 18 billion dirty diapers annually, thanks to the eighty percent of parents who use disposables.” This adds up to 82,000 tons of plastic and 1.3 million tons of wood pulp.
