A Canadian company called Knowaste has developed a system to extract the recyclable plastic from dirty disposable baby diapers for use in roofing tiles and plastic components. Fast Company has more:
Babies in the United States go through about 24 million diapers a year, contributing 3.4 million tons of waste to landfills. And, worldwide, the impact is too foul to contemplate: The average baby needs about 6,000 diapers before becoming potty-trained. There are a lot of babies in the world.
Disposable diapers are a major environmental problem—a cause of water contamination and landscape blight, and a challenge not likely to be solved with alternative products. And that’s before we even talk about other â€œabsorbent hygiene productsâ€ (AHPs) like feminine hygiene and incontinence pads, which have their own place in landfill hell.
