Yes. disposables are made of plastic that often winds up filling landfills (or worse-yet) floating in bits in the ocean, but what about all the harsh cleaning fluids used in cleaning the diapers by diaper laundering companies? The dioxins alone can't be great for our water resources! In terms of waste during production vs. waste during production and maintenance is there really a significant difference?
Has anyone seen any non-biased (or at least less-biased) research showing one or the other to actually be a better choice environmentally?
