The Environmental Impact of Cloth versus Disposable Nappies

Added on 26 August 2013 in Environmental considerations

The environmental impact of cloth nappies compared to disposable nappies, from the Life Cycle Assessment by the University of Queensland in 2009.

This study considered the 'life cycle' impact: from the growing of cotton (for the cloth nappies) and timber (for the wood pulp used in disposables), the manufacture of the nappies and transportation, through to use (including water & energy used in washing cloth nappies) and disposal.
