If you are like most American’s with incontinence, you may be shocked to learn that adult disposable incontinence products occupy as much as 7% of all landfills-this translates to a whopping 17.5 million tons of garbage. Adult disposable incontinence products are the 3rd largest consumer item found in United States landfills.
The staggering landfill statistics result from incontinence products use of over 30 million Americans suffering from urinary incontinence. Even though many disposable products are marked “biodegradable,” this doesn’t necessarily mean they are not causing a problem in the environment-according to the California Integrated Waste management Board. These adult diapers (even the biodegradable ones) don’t breakdown quickly in landfills. In fact, it can take as long as 500 years for these diapers to completely decompose.
In addition to the problem with disposal of adult incontinence products, it takes over 82,000 tons of plastic and nearly 250,000 trees to make a years’ supply of these adult diapers.
