    (CNSNews.com) - As environmentalists celebrate the 34th annual Earth Day, some in the green movement are now advocating "diaper-free" babies to help save the planet.

    Citing concerns about plastic disposable diapers clogging landfills and the amount of washing and detergents that cloth diapers require, many environmentalists are taking a page from tribal cultures and seeking to eliminate the use of the baby diapers altogether.

    The green movement is now promoting diaperless babies as a "retro, cutting-edge, environmentally friendly scheme" to mothers throughout the industrialized world.

    The green movement already has declared war on the modern flush toilet, declaring it an "environmental disaster," and has instead pushed waterless "dry" toilets as an earth-friendly solution.

    Former Vice President Al Gore joined the board of a waterless urinal company late last year to further the dry toilet cause and to help avert what many environmentalists believe is a looming international water crisis.

    "There is a way to have a baby and NOT use diapers," says one website advocating diaperless babies. Parents are urged to get in tune with their infant's body signals and hold babies over toilets, buckets and shrubbery or any other convenient receptacle when nature calls.

    One advocate suggests bringing a "tight-lidded bucket" along to serve as a waste receptacle when mothers take their babies out in public.

    This is called the Michael Jackson solution-- freeing those sexy babies from the confines of their diapers.

    Sorry Michael, you bring it on yourself.:eek:

    Are these people nuts or what?!!! If this mom has any more babies,it will be Luvs and Pampers all the way!!!!Newborns tend to go a lot-I guess parents should have no life other than waiting for their babies to shit!? Not to menton,I doubt the babysitter wants to run aroung holding your kid over the toilet so he doesn't crap on the furniture. What the hell do you do when your in the car? And there is no way a restaurant would put up with this.I don't know who the looney tune is that came up with this,but they need their head examined. This could also be very unsanitary for a baby if they went in a car and had to sit in it for a while-yuk!

    What about those cloth diapers? I remember my mother used them with my little bro at least in part. A service would come every week and pick up the used ones and drop off fresh "linens". That would definitely be a little more earth-friendly.

    You have to admit, Americans create A TON OF WASTE, and certianly diapers make up a good part of this. Plus, people got by fine for years without them.

    However, this does sound REDICULOUS. Know when to hold your infant over the toilet? Come on...

    Hard to imagine this working in civilized society. I don't think we have that much tolerance for shit.

    People even walk around with plastic bags picking up there dogs mess, nevermind their kids.

    I like to joke to my friends, "Going to walk your bag of shit?"

    That has got to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. What about a premature baby? my Daughter was 3 lbs. and on a Apnea Monitor, how would someone like that, know a signal and run with a monitor to a toilet, bucket, garbage pail, etc.. ?

    They are reallyl using their brains now!:wtf:
