World's First Compostable Diaper.....?

I came across an article recently about the *loud speaker on* "The World's First Compostable Diapers!" Interesting enough, I had to take a look and see what it was about. Diapers made by the company Element's Naturals that also makes compostable wipes. So the skinny on this is that their products are no doubt made with natural ingredients and claims to be 100% fully compostable in a 3 months span. However, user comments and other sites I visited mentioned this is not a composting project you would have in your backyard. You would have to find a local composting facility and for the diapers, they can only have urine. For the wipes, they have to be "wet". So there's always the debate between cloth and disposable for the sake of the environment. I personally use disposables because working 40 hours a week plus everything else, I honestly did not see that as a possilibity. So how bad really is it? The following article nails it for me:

The Great Disposable Diaper Debate

We all do a little to negatively contribute to our environment. But as long as we do little parts in what we can in our lifestyle, eating habits, transportation, etc, I'd say that's good enough to give yourself a little pat on the back. Pin It Now!
