>If you ever want a greater symbol of the downfall of the West look no further than disposable diapers and the absolute waste they cause
I don't own a car and I live within walking distance to work. I try to shop within walking distance and keep my deliveries to a minimum. I repair rather than replace electronics whenever possible, I sell and donate rather than throw away things I don't use.
I feel like I've offset my use of disposable diapers by that.
>If you ever want to do your bit for the planet reject the disposables and return to cloth. They don't even have truly great colorful designs anyway.
I've tried cloth and it just doesn't do it for me, I'm a DL and that lovely disposable SAP makes all the difference for me. I suppose I could try a disposable booster in a cloth diaper, but then what's the point?
>Billions of diapers end up in landfills each year which is causing humanity to literally drown the world in shit
And? Your "reasoning" is that they won't decompose for hundreds of years, I find it difficult to believe it's that large of an impact, this is easy to prove, really, I'd love to see a study that tried to dig up landfills from the 80's and found an identifiable disposable from the 80's in the trash, I suspect they might find some remnants, but not a full, intact diaper. Maybe Pamperchu can finally be useful!
Aside from that, though, there is FAR more waste and pollution in this world than diapers, planned obsolescence consumer goods are a much bigger problem than diapers.
