There are lots of ways to describe gDiapers. Here are a few: biodegradable*, compostable, flushable and breathable. Bottom line, they’re a disposable diaper done better. And by better we mean better for baby and better for the planet. At the end of the day they don’t have to end up in a landfill. Could they? Will they? Some very well may. But it’s not a requirement.
Regular disposable diapers have no option other than this trashcan or that trashcan. They can’t be composted (please don’t try), they can’t be flushed (that’s pretty obvious) and they will never biodegrade. So the option for disposal is….well, there isn’t one.
So, what if a gDiaper disposable insert does get thrown away? What then? The EPA is pretty adamant about how nothing biodegrades in a landfill. And we’re not going to argue. They’re right. But gDiapers gives you options.
Want to keep diapers completely out of landfills? Compost the wet ones, flush the poopy ones. And if you have no other option but to toss them, don’t sweat it. You’re doing an incredible thing regardless. Your baby thanks you. We thank you. And if the earth could talk, we’re positive it would thank you, too.
*Disposable inserts are biodegradable in home composts per ASTM standards by a third party independent lab (wet ones only please). Nothing truly biodegrades in a landfill. But gDiapers give you 3 options for disposal. Flush, compost or toss. The choice is yours.
