The traditional disposable diaper takes an estimated 500 years to break down. What's more, in Canada, more than four million disposable diapers are discarded each day! Several greener brands of disposable diapers are now available -- these are usually free of chemicals, fragrances and chlorine, and made with unbleached cotton and wood pulp. A reusable diaper, however, is the best option.
