Throw away diaper turns environmentally eco-friendly

Sep '09
Millions of diapers, each year find their way in to landfills raising the hackles of die-hard environmentalists across the globe. But a greener way has been found, if not entirely, to correct the anomaly of so many years.

President's Choice, a UK based company is taking the lead in creating a greener diaper. The eventual goal of President's Choice is to make an entirely 100 percent environmental disposable diaper.

The company is in the process of replacing harsh plastic compounds with plant based polymers instead. The wood pulp they use comes from forests that are being taken care of and managed in an environmentally friendly way.

The forests are sustained by replacing what they harvest and chlorine is not used to process the diapers in the bleaching process and by not using chlorine, it helps prevent pollution of precious water resources.

When researching the cloth diaper, President's Choice discovered that the cotton used to make the cloth diaper is being sprayed with pesticides and chemicals. So the first step begins by using materials produced from organic cotton.

The company is also particular about where the cotton is grown, of how the yarn and fabric is processed to ensure and deliver a 100 percent environmentally friendly diaper in the near future.

This is the beginning of the greatest of possibilities with the throw away diaper.
