So you’ve been home-composting for years. Your garbage can is perpetually empty from your resourceful ways, your recycling bin is delightfully minimized thanks to your packaging-free lifestyle, and your compost bin is a flurry of earthy activity. Now you hear about compostable diapers. It’s true. gDiapers disposable inserts can be home composted! From bum to bin, from pee to peonies, from bottom to topsoil. You’re stoked. But why oh why do we say to only compost the wet ones? What about the poopy ones?
We know you want to, you go-getter you. Truth is, we think composting ALL your disposable inserts would be A+ awesome sauce. But at the end of the day, we are a company that is speaking to a very wide and vast audience. We cannot responsibly advocate that parents home compost their baby’s poopy diapers as there can be human health risks involved. If this is an option you would like to seriously consider there are resources available to guide you. But we just have to say it again: please only home compost the wet ones.
Rest assured, if the only diapers you’re composting are the wet ones, that’s still a TON of diapers that you’re keeping out of the landfill. Your garden is going to want to give you a hug. Please let us know if it does.
