Explosion Could Lead to Higher Diaper Prices
(STLMoms) – Do you have little ones? There may soon be a worldwide diaper shortage. And it’s all because of a weekend explosion at a Japanese chemical plant which produces a key element in disposable diapers.
The damage could slow production of disposable diapers everywhere and possibly drive the price up. The Japanese chemical plant produces about 10 percent of the world’s supply. So if you find a good price on disposable diapers, you might want to buy extras.
