I was looking for this picture on-line and found this great post written by a like-minded mom (credits at the end). Here you will find some interesting fact on disposable vs cloth diapers.
In 1988, over 18 billion diapers were sold and consumed in the United States that year.
Based on our calculations (listed below under “Cost: National Costs”), we estimate that 27.4 billion disposable diapers are consumed every year in the U.S.
The instructions on a disposable diaper package advice that all fecal matter should be deposited in the toilet before discarding, yet less than one half of one percent of all waste from single-use diapers goes into the sewage system.
