This will definitely not be a post like you’re anticipating. While I wholeheartedly agree with the premise of a clean, safe environment now and for the future, I never had the opportunity to support it with my five children when they were infants as today’s young parents do. Meet the gDiaper – the breathable diaper you can flush or even compost!
While I have to confess to a very healthy skepticism to a lot of advertisment PR about a company’s “green”-ness (I am a child of the ’60’s, after all!), in reading and viewing information on the gDiapers.com website, I was amazed and thrilled at what I found.
This company has successfully found a way for your baby to have a disposable, flushable, environmentally-friendly diaper that is actually comfortable, absorbent, and easy to use.
From their website:
gDiapers consist of a washable, cotton outer pant and a plastic free flushable refill. They are made of breathable material just like sports clothing. So, babies stay dry and happy and are far less likely to get diaper rash.
Can’t flush? It’s ok to toss flushable refills because they’re plastic-free. Or garden compost the wet ones. They’ll break down in 50-150 days.
I checked further in their website and found that gDiapers are available here locally at Sevananda Natural Foods in the Little Five Points area as well as Whole Foods Markets. Prices surprisingly are very comparable to brand-name disposable diapers. Now, if only I had a baby to diaper! 😀
