I have a grandson in diapers and I wholly understand the convenience of disposable diapers but every time we change one, I'm reminded that, globally, many millions of these almost-indestructible things are being disposed of every single day. The mind boggles. Just one element out of a vast array to think about and feel guilty of in the wee hours

I only have another 20 odd years on this planet (I hope it's not too much longer) so I'll try to stop worrying about it.
