We all know a laundry list of things that are bad for the environment. Plastics are filling up our garbage dumps, and chemicals are destroying our water supply. However, there is a culprit that greatly damages the environment, and does so without most people knowing. That culprit is the diaper.
At some point in your life you’ve been around a small child, and that child has needed a diaper. So how do you ensure that you aren’t damaging the environment while also making sure to take care of your infant? The easiest way to just invest in some diapers that also take care of our planet. Lucky for you, below are the top five brands of environmentally friendly diapers.

2 – Nature Babycare
Because the inside is made of all natural products, it’s both safe to put on your baby without fears of it irritating or bothering them, but it’ll also break down after you throw it away, which is great news for the earth.
