EMA Calls For The Banning Of Disposable Diapers (Pampers Etc)

The Environmental Management Agency (EMA) has called for the banning of disposable diapers (pampers) as they are considered a serious hazard to the environment.

EMA Bulawayo provincial manager, Decent Ndlovu, revealed that the authority has been assessing the impact of disposable diapers since they were introduced and believes it’s now high time they are banned. He said:

We are advocating they be banned because of the environmental hazards they post. If the people who produce and sell them are really concerned, they should recover and recycle them.

The disposable diapers create toxic trash that takes 500 years to decompose in landfills while their improper disposal allows excrement to be washed into rivers.

Nursing mothers are, however, against the banning of pampers since traditional nappies require a lot of water for washing, which is simply not available in most areas.
