    Back in the day - dinosaur era-- I raised my children using cloth diapers. No diaper service. No washing machine. No dryer except Mother Nature. In winter they froze before you could get the second clothespin on the line. Was joyful when they came out with pre folded cloth diapers. Modern marvel for sure.
    Back to basic- use the cloth diapers.

    They're not zero impact. They do take extra water and soap, and if you dry them in a dryer they take extra gas or electricity. But, they can be used over and over, so you're not sending something made of plastic and chemicals to the dump 5-10 times a day. The plastic alone can take eleventy billion years to biodegrade. I totally made that number up, but it's a long time.

    No, that is a real number. It's one I use at least eleventy billlion times a day! And I hardly ever make anything up!
