Every year, 20 billion disposable diapers are thrown away, amounting to 3.5 million tons of waste a year. Because of their non-biodegradable material, each diaper can take 550 year or more to decompose in landfills. Not to mention their expense, diapers for one child cost about $75-$100 per month.
Switching to reusable diapers, like this one from Buttons Diapers, can eliminate the waste and reduce the cost of diapers. This is a one-size-fits-all diaper so you do not have to buy new diapers as your child grows.
This company offers 18 different colors and patterns and also has diaper inserts for sale.
