Using cloth diapers instead of single-use diapers has several environmental benefits:

Reduced Waste: Single-use diapers contribute significantly to landfill waste. Cloth diapers can be reused multiple times, significantly reducing the volume of waste.

Lower Resource Consumption: The production of single-use diapers requires more raw materials, including plastics and super-absorbent polymers. Cloth diapers, on the other hand, use more sustainable materials and require less resource-intensive manufacturing processes.

Decreased Energy and Water Usage in Production: The manufacturing of disposable diapers is energy and water-intensive. Although cloth diapers also require water and energy for washing and drying, their repeated use often results in a lower overall environmental impact over their life cycle.

Less Chemical Exposure: Disposable diapers often contain chemicals like dioxins, fragrances, and phthalates, which have environmental implications during both production and disposal. Cloth diapers, especially organic ones, typically have fewer chemicals, reducing environmental contamination.

Lower Carbon Footprint: The production, transportation, and disposal of single-use diapers contribute to higher carbon emissions compared to cloth diapers. By reusing cloth diapers, the carbon footprint per diaper use is generally lower.

Biodegradability: Cloth diapers are more biodegradable than disposable ones. While there are biodegradable disposable diapers available, they often require specific conditions to break down effectively, which aren't always present in landfills.

Promotion of Sustainable Practices: The use of cloth diapers can encourage a more sustainable lifestyle, prompting users to make more environmentally conscious choices in other aspects of their lives.

Impact analysis
The average number of diapers used by a child per day can vary depending on the age and individual needs of the child. Generally, newborns tend to use more diapers compared to older infants and toddlers. Here's a rough breakdown:

Newborns (0-1 month): Newborns typically use about 8-12 diapers per day. This high usage is due to their small bladder and the frequent feedings, which result in more wet and soiled diapers.

Infants (1-5 months): As babies grow, the number of diapers used per day tends to decrease slightly. Infants might use around 8-10 diapers a day.

Older Infants (5-12 months): As infants continue to grow and start eating solid foods, their diaper usage can decrease further. They may use around 6-8 diapers a day.

Toddlers (12 months and up): Toddlers typically need fewer diaper changes as they begin to gain control over their bladder and bowel movements. They might use around 4-6 diapers a day.

Based on this, we are taking 8 as the average number of diapers used per child per day, 240 per month.

Trees saved
Determining how many diapers can be produced from one tree involves several variables, including the type of tree, its size, the age of the tree when harvested, and the manufacturing process of the diapers. However, here is a rough estimate based on average values.

1. Tree Yield for Paper: A typical mature pine tree used for paper production might produce about 80 cubic feet of wood. This is a general figure and can vary based on the type and size of the tree.

2. Paper Production: The amount of paper produced from a given volume of wood depends on the efficiency of the pulping process. On average, one tree can produce nearly 1,000-2,000 pounds of paper, depending on the process used and the type of paper being produced.

3. Paper in Diapers: A single diaper contains a certain amount of fluff pulp (made from paper). This amount varies by diaper size and brand, but let's assume an average of around 15 grams of fluff pulp per diaper.

Based on these estimates, one tree can produce approximately:

- 30,267 diapers on the lower end of the estimate.
- 60,533 diapers on the higher end of the estimate.

We are taking 45,000 as the average number of single-use diapers from 1 tree. Cloth diapers prevent 240 diapers per month from going into landfill, hence preventing the cutting of .005 trees per month, and .12 trees over 2 years.

Plastic
The amount of plastic in a typical disposable diaper varies based on the design and brand, but it is a significant component. Disposable diapers consist of several layers, each serving a specific function, and many of these layers are made from plastic-based materials. Here's a breakdown of the plastic components in a typical disposable diaper:

Outer Cover: The outer layer of most disposable diapers is made of a waterproof material that is often a plastic-based, breathable film. This layer keeps wetness inside the diaper and prevents leaks.

Absorbent Core: While the absorbent core primarily contains fluff pulp and superabsorbent polymers (SAP), it is usually wrapped in a synthetic, plastic-based material that helps to keep the core intact and distribute wetness.

Leg Cuffs and Elastic Waistband: The leg cuffs and elastic waistband, which provide a snug fit and prevent leaks, are typically made from synthetic, elastic materials that include plastics.

Fastening System: The tapes or tabs used to secure the diaper are usually made from plastic materials. Additionally, some diapers have a plastic-based landing zone for the tabs.

Other Components: Some diapers include additional features like wetness indicators, which are also made using plastic materials.

Based on this analysis it is safe to assume that an average 30 pieces of plastic are prevented through the use of reusable cloth diapers per month, and over 720 over 2 years.

Distance traveled
Each diaper lasts about 2 years, preventing on average about 1,500 miles travelled per month, per case of diapers, and 90,000 miles over a 2 year lifespan.

Money saved
A disposable diaper costs about $.50 each. A cloth diaper can be used at least once a day, and can last over 2 years, costing around $.10 in washing and drying. This results in cost savings of almost $300 over its lifetime ($.40 x 365 days x 2 years).
