Mālama ʻāina, one diaper at a time!
Like most expecting parents, there are many questions and decisions to make before a baby is born – doctor or mid-wife; hospital or home birth; the right stroller and car seat; bottle or breastfeed and diapering.
The Hard Facts
- Just for U.S. babies, 200,000 trees are lost each year to disposable diapers.
- 20 billion disposables are dumped in landfills each year – that’s 3.5 million tons of waste
- 500 years for disposables to decompose, which poses a threat to our ground water.
- Eco-friendly disposables contain sodium polyacrylate so are not fully biodegradable.
