- Until a child is toilet trained, he or she will use approximately 6,000 diapers, which represents up to one tonne of waste.
- Disposable diapers are made of plastic (derived from crude oil) and cellulose (derived from wood). For one child, this is equivalent to half a barrel of crude oil and four and a half trees. Disposable diapers also require large quantities of water to be produced.
- One washable diaper is equivalent to around 300 disposable diapers.
