Cloth Diapers Program

Did you know?

  • A child will use approximately 6,000 disposable diapers from birth to potty training, which is equivalent to one ton of waste. By using cloth diapers, we reduce the amount of waste going to our landfills.
  • Disposable diapers take several years to decompose
  • Many trees are cut down each year in Canada to make disposable diapers.
