It's not just babies diapers that are going into landfills, what about reusable adult diapers? One positive of using reusable adult diapers, as opposed to using disposable diapers, is lessening the negative impact on the environment. Since we know that some 19 million people in the U.S. suffer from incontinence, the number of disposable adult diapers in our landfills is nearly inconceivable. Eco-friendly people often cite these statistics in their arguing the benefits of using non-disposable diapers.

reusable adult diapersThere are a few cons to reusable diapers:

  1. They require to much work - Yes, who said saving the environment was easy?

  2. It's Gross - Yes, it is. But you get used to it after a while.... unless you really have a sensitive nose... it might never get easier.

  3. Aren't completely environmentally friendly - Adult reusable diapers aren't completely environment-friendly, however. Consider the amount of energy and water it takes to clean cloth diapers. Some say this can be seen as a drain on the environment. One estimate of washing diapers for one adult would be $5 a month
You could also take the alternative option of doing both. Keep things changed up and different, this way your loved one never knows what to expect.
