This thesis examines the accuracy of common claims made against the disposable nappy on environmental grounds. It focuses on the issues of disposal, fluff pulp manufacture and resource requirements. Selected claims, which are sourced from newspapers, magazines and publications by government and non government bodies, are presented and categorized. The technical and scientific literature relevant to the claims is critically reviewed. Most of the claims presented were found to be exaggerated, inaccurate and based on arguments which had very little to do with disposable nappies.
