One thought on “What is in disposable diapers?

  1. Hi Jen! I really liked reading your article. I work for beautycounter, a company that is working towards transparency and regulation in the beauty industry, and even though many of my friends cloth diaper, and I intend to do so as well, I had never thought about the ingredient implications of disposables (just the eco/financial ones). One note though, you said that we know what’s in a babies clothing, and that’s not always the case. Tons of kids clothing are sprayed with flame retardants, and companies don’t have to disclose what those chemicals are! Its just crazy. Thank you for your article and your petition, I will be signing for sure!
