Did you know that the average newborn baby will go through 60-80
diapers in one week? In total your child will be in diapers from
minimum 0-3 years of age and send 5,500 diapers to landfills that
will not break down for 500 plus years? Most people do not even
come in contact with this information until they are about to have
their own baby. In our Sustainable Diapering Class we will
give you the tools you will need to make the best informed decision
regarding diapering your baby.
Join panelists Sara Comden and Katie Comfort of EarthBaby, the SF Bay Area's compostable diapering service, as they discuss the different diapering options you can choose:
- (EC) Elimination communication
- cloth diapers
- disposable plastic diapers
- compostable diapers
You will become aware of the pros and cons to each of these approaches, the history of diapering, and the impact each method has on the environment.
