The world needs assistance to revive and flourish again. It requires the complete attention of every individual – young and old – towards eradicating unsustainable practices and embracing environmental friendly ones. To start with, parents can assist their little ones in building a greener world right from their cradle years. The best way to do so is to put a complete stop to regular plastic disposable baby diapers – because they lie in landfills for over 500 years before they decompose.
Did you know that over 130 million babies are born every year, and considering each baby uses up to an average of 5000 diapers – we are piling on an incalculable number of synthetic diapers on the heavy shoulders of our planet.
In addition to being morally correct, it is also in our interest to care for the planet. “What goes around, comes around -” and if we mistreat Earth, she will also be unable to provide the human race with her care and gifts. Thus, we need to build a circular economy to conquer baby diaper waste. Reusing, sharing, repairing, refurbishing, remanufacturing and recycling of baby diapers must be encouraged – and the one way to achieve the same is by using only biodegradable products. Some of the best disposable baby diapers are those that are natural, biodegradable and easy on the skin and the planet. To continue the quest of choosing planet over plastic, we’ve curated a list of factors you must keep in mind at all times – especially while purchasing newborn baby diapers.
Preserve Our Resources
We cannot afford to neglect our responsibility towards our planet and deplete its natural resources anymore. Not all resources can be replenished and those that can require time to re-generate. It is important we inspire responsibility towards the environment by seeking more knowledge as to what are the best measures to ensure the new generation does not leave behind a carbon footprint.
The global trend of rise in incomes has increased the average spend per baby which has resulted in the subsequent boom of the baby diaper market in both the premium as well as the affordable segments. While every parent will want to pamper their tiny tot, they have realised the importance of going green and are witnessing the benefits of more natural solutions to diapering.
Be a Conscious Consumer
Raising a baby without leaving a carbon footprint is not as difficult as it is often made out to be. To move in that direction, the first step is to choose biodegradable and eco-friendly diapers. To further be a smarter consumer, we must take the time to find out which raw materials are used in the production of these biodegradable and disposable baby diaper pads and whether or not they are organically sourced. If there are certain concerns or questions with regard to the manufacturing process, the diaper company must be contacted for clarification.
