gDiapers Blog, Stories & Podcasts
Sure, we switched the order around a bit. But reduce, reusable diapers and recycle just didn’t have the same ring to it. So what’s this all about then? Why a blog post dedicated to reusable diapers? First, when it comes to gDiapers, there are two ways to interpret what it means to be a reusable diaper. The diaper cover (gPants) is reusable. So no matter if you use a disposable insert or a cloth insert, you’ll still always be re-using at least that part of it. And then naturally, if you’re inclined to go with cloth, well then you truly are opting for a completely reusable diaper option.
So what is a hybrid diaper? Where did it come from? One that comes with a cord so it can be plugged in to re-charge at night? Ha. Not quite. But that would make a pretty fun DIY project for you savvy seamstresses (and electricians).
gDiapers are the original hybrid diaper. They were invented by an innovative mama in Tasmania. She wanted to create a diaper with two insert options: one flushable, one washable and reusable. Voila. A hybrid diaper. The best of both worlds.
We’ll say it until the cows come home: the most earth-friendly way to dispose of your disposable inserts is by home composting (wet ones only).
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 (wet ones only please) 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?
