gDiapers Blog, Stories & Podcasts
We love stories from families who take advantage of composting Disposable Inserts (wet ones only), even at 10,000 feet above sea level! We talked with gMum Miriam, who just started a compost pile with her husband Lee and their kids, four-year-old River and one-year-old Will, at their home in Washington.
“Growing up, my mom always had a compost pile for her garden, so I was curious about having one for my kids too. And we are planning four raised garden beds this summer, so compost will be a great kick-starter for the soil.”
We imagine a world where all products are designed and manufactured responsibly. Where all products are created with the end use in mind. A world that follows the principles of Cradle to Cradle, the world leader in ecologically intelligent design.
Cradle to Cradle goes beyond troubleshooting how to minimize waste, or how to prolong a product that will ultimately become waste, and instead encourages us to rethink the conditions that shape our designs in the first place. Cradle to Cradle utilizes design as a tool to shape a healthier world economically, ecologically and socially. We can in fact build a better world, a world of abundance, not scarcity. Rather than focusing on having a smaller footprint, Cradle to Cradle directs innovation toward a positive footprint. And it starts at the design level. Make “healthy, safe, efficient and quality products that are designed with future impact in mind.”
Before Back To School
Remember our friends in Leadville, CO? They’re Carrie and Cooper, two teachers/elevation-defying composters who recently welcomed another member to the family for a grand total of four, two of whom are happily adding to the compost pile, instead of the trash bin, by way of gDiapers (disposable inserts, wet ones only).
We wanted to catch up with this miles-high family as summer wraps up and Carrie and Cooper head back to school.
Is It Spring yet?
Maybe in Portland, or Austin, or even London. But after checking in with our composting friends in Leadville, CO last month…
It’s easy to throw up our hands in the face of plastic-filled gyres and contaminated fish, but we’re not the types to be intimidated. Our current plastics situation is in many ways the by-product of “convenience” products that have only been in our lives for a generation.
