Best Diapers: Eco-Friendly Diapers

These tips will help you choose the best, eco-friendly diapers for your baby.

| March/April 2006




The average baby goes through 5,000 diapers before being potty trained. Some claim cloth diapers are gentler on the environment than disposables and healthier for babies; others say there’s no clear winner because both deplete natural resources and cause pollution. What to do? These potty pointers can help you decide.

Disposables

• Convenient

• Super-absorbent disposables hold more moisture and wick it away from skin better than cloth.



• Chlorine-free brands don’t contribute to dioxin pollution.

• Contain dioxins (unless they’re chlorine free).
