Uncover Potty Training Secrets Designed To Help Babies From 0 To 1
Disposable diapers are said to be the 3rd largest contributor to landfills worldwide!
In the U.S., it is estimated that 20 billion disposable diapers end up in landfills each year, and pathogens from solid waste contained in those diapers find their way into the environment.
It can take hundreds of years for diapers to degrade in a landfill, and they release methane and other toxic gases into the air.
If soiled diapers don’t end up in landfills, some companies choose to incinerate them, leading to an estimated 3428 kg of CO2 emissions per day, based on 10 tons of diapers per day.
It may come as a surprise to you but babies, like grown ups, don’t appear to enjoy being dirty. You probably would not want to sit in a poopy diaper either, so why should baby?
Thanks to modern technology, today’s diapers are fancier, easier to use and more comfortable to wear, but diapers can create a lot of environmental waste.
Data shows that a typical baby in America will often go through more than 1,000 diapers in their first 3 months of life.
Waiting until your little one is 2 or 3 years old to use a potty could cost you a lot of money and could create an enormous amount of stinky trash.
