Introducing: The gCycle Solution (VOTE NOW!)
The gCycle Solution
We have been working behind the scenes to bring our innovative gCycle program into the market. Our aim is to end waste as we know it, to stop 50 million diapers a DAY entering landfills in the US by turning those diapers into a valuable resource—compost!
The gCycle solution we have been piloting in Australia delivers and collects compostable diapers and wipes to child care centers, safely transforming the used product into nutrient rich soil—diverting 80% of their waste from landfill. In addition to high quality compost, we currently have the technology to convert our diaper waste into liquid fertilizer and natural gas, and we are working towards other forms of energy. Visit our How To Compost Diapers guide for more information.
Check out Jason’s video explaining this exciting new development:
This approach is an example of the burgeoning “circular economy”, where we strive to extend the life and value of a product by turning it into something new instead of disposing of it. gDiapers, along with Google, Nike, IKEA and Unilever, are a part of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, driving toward this new economy.
Vote for gDiapers!
We are excited about how gCycle can transform how we use diapers around the world. To do that there is work to be done. One way you can help us is to vote for gDiapers at this year’s Dell Circular Economy People’s Choice Awards, in which we are honored to be a finalist! Winning this award will raise awareness of our project and help us find the partners we need to launch gCycle. VOTE HERE!
