it stands to reason that anything that is re-useable is a far better "green" choice. the "reduce-reuse-recycle" thing.
even though energy costs are rising, i seriously doubt that in the larger picture, using cloth diapers is even close to using disposable ones, as far as wasting both energy, resources, and landfill space.
i applaud anyone who uses cloth diapers for reasons of conscience. we did not, btw, so i go the extra mile (on foot) in other areas to help save energy and live by the three r's or environmentalism.
A true lover of nature does not despair now that his mistress has turned a colder cheek.
