I wonder if these are the same women who are pushing towards the acceptance of public breastfeeding.
I am seriously wondering, though, how they think people have the time for this? I don't think the 12 weeks of maternity leave we get in this country is nearly enough time to toilet train your baby. And no day care is going to be particularly happy with a child that poops everywhere it wants to. And a child not accustomed to wearing diapers is probably going to be that child that takes off their diaper at daycare and poos everywhere.
This might be doable for the rich, who have enough income to support a household on a single income, so mom or pop could stay home and follow the kid around with a shovel.
Or it could be doable to those cultures which spend a majority of their time outdoors, sans pavement and drainage systems, who don't have to worry about contamination of the water source. Also, I would suspect that a child that learns from a young age that it's okay to urinate between cars, is going to be that teenager who is arrested for public urination.
But for those of us middle class people living in a society where you can get arrested for indecent exposure? Yeah, we'll hand-launder our diapers if we are *that* concerned about the environment (how is parking lot pee that gets into the storm drain any more environmentally friendly than laundry water that goes through a filtration system and/or septic tank? At least that's contained.)
