Turning diaper waste into a resource
Every day, 50 million diapers wind up in US landfills alone. That’s over four million tons of diaper waste that will wind up in our landfills for 500 or more years as they slowly (very slowly) decompose. What if we could change this story, and not only prevent diapers from winding up in landfills, but turn all of that diaper waste into products like soil, power, and fuel. That’s the mission of gCycle.
gDiapers - The first flushable, Cradle-to-Cradle certified diaper
In 2004 gDiapers introduced the world’s first flushable diaper, a two-part system that created an entirely new category of hybrid diapers. gDiapers remains the only diaper that can be home composted (wet inserts only) and holds the prestigious Cradle to Cradle Certification – ensuring all ingredients in the product get reabsorbed back into nature in a neutral or beneficial way.
gCycle - The world’s first renewable diaper
Transforming diapers into compost was a good start, but not enough. To truly solve the problem gDiapers needed to follow principles of Circular Economy Design, where used products are collected and transformed into ingredients for something more valuable: eliminating the very concept of waste. Enter gCycle, the next generation of g’s designed to divert diapers from landfill for good.
gCycle is both a diaper and a service created specifically for daycare centers. The patented petrochemical plastic-free diapers are made of bio-based film designed for maximum breathability.
The gCycle service will deliver, collect, and safely regenerate gCycle diapers into valuable resources like soil, power or fuel. Dirty diapers to clean energy.
These diapers will change everything
The gDiapers team has been working on gCycle quietly behind the scenes. When it’s ready for launch gCycle will deliver diapers that eliminate plastic, landfill and waste. gCycle is the culmination of years of hard work and passion, and we can’t wait to show you what it looks like. Our journey to bridge the gap between parents and planet and create a solution that is sustainable and simple is just around the corner.
