Not sure where to put this, but I was wondering if anyone has/knows statistics of cloth vs disposable dipe use in the industrialized countries. I tried googling it & couldn't find anything. I'm really curious. Anyone know?

The most consitent (not neccesarily most accurate) figure that I have seen is 85% sposies, 15% cloth. I've read this a few different places (cloth diaper sites, mainstream mags, scholarly journal articles) and when my dr praised me for using cloth, she said about 15% of her patients use cloth.

Hope this helps!
