Disposable diapers

Re "Bill would start first diaper aid program in US" (Page A1, Aug. 2): So much for the plastic and paper bags. How about the disposable diapers? There are thousands and possibly millions of disposable diapers discarded yearly with human waste, however nothing is being done to curtail this.

A Southern California legislator is recommending an $82 monthly allowance for purchasing. That would buy a lot of cloth diapers. Of course, the modern day mothers do not want to take the time to use them. Our family raised three children using cloth diapers. I do hope that someone in the future will take a close look at this.
