How much waste does a baby wearing disposable diapers really generate?
Cotton Babies has long been frustrated by the lack of information available about how each baby wearing disposable diapers impacts landfills.
We are working on a project to collect data about how much used disposable diapers weigh. The goal of this project is to estimate the approximate weight of the waste generated from a child wearing disposable diapers full time.
To participate, please have your baby wear one disposable diaper for a normal length of time (as you define it). At the next diaper change, please weigh that disposable diaper. You can submit the information about that diaper using this form:
After the data is collected and summarized, we will publish the results here on this blog for the benefit of the entire cloth diapering community. Multiple submissions per family are welcome, but please sure that each submission reflects the information for one diaper only. Thank you in advance for your participation and for telling your friends so they can help too!
