Gel based throw away nappies (diapers)

These nappies once disposed of cannot be used for anything but landfill as they are totally non bio-degradable, and I am not sure of their half life status , but I am sure that we will be building our houses and doing our gardening on old pee and poo in the very near future. What alternatives are there, The young people of today are too busy or too lazy to use washable nappies??

During my mother's time diapers are never heard of. They had less rubbish to burn and their garden vegetable taste sweeter. Now we have those diapers strewn around in the backyard waiting to be burned. Plastics are not 100% burned the ramnants are a pollution to the garden soil. Probably they can be recycled for something else in future as washable nappies are a thing of the past now and in future generations.
