Environmentally friendliness may not be a concern for an individual, but as a society it’s a growing concern.
One estimate from Incontinence Product Guide says an aging population reliant on one diaper per day amounts to 7.73 billion diapers a year in the United States alone. Can you imagine a stack of diapers that high? Now imagine at least a portion of that population requires 5-6 pads per day. It adds up to epic proportions.
Understand the condition, and methods for treatment is the first and foremost defense against using synthetic products to protect against incontinence.
Secondly, using a diaper for a little leakage is like cracking a nut with a sledgehammer; its just unnecessary. Use the correct protection for the need.
Third, for heavy incontinence, use heavy-duty options that can wick and hold more contents before changing.
And finally, there are often re-usable products on the market you can try, like washable panties and panty liners. It will cost more up front but likely save money and waste in the long run.
