A Green Alternative to Disposable Diapers
Looking for an alternative to disposable diapers (a.k.a. “sposies”), but not quite ready to dive into cloth? Well, the happy medium might just be gDiapers. Marketed as the flushable, Earth-friendly hybrid diaper, gDiapers are actually eco-friendly. In a nutshell, unlike traditional disposable diapers, gDiapers aren’t harmful to the Earth. They are eco-consciously designed to break down in a way that isn’t harmful to the Earth, meaning they circumvent the landfill issue.
Oh, in case you’re wondering what I mean by landfill issue, you should know that it’s said to take up to 500 years (yikes!!!) for a disposable diaper to break down in a landfill. Hey, if you didn’t know this, don’t feel bad. Now you know!
The cool thing about gDiapers is that they involve a washable outer cover and a flushable inside. This means comfort for both baby and the Earth! You can click here to see the gDiapers video.
Whether you opt for cloth, disposables, something in between, like gDiapers, or a combination of options, it’s important to find a diapering solution that works for your baby, your family and your lifestyle. Keep in mind, too, that just because you start with one type of diaper doesn’t necessarily mean you have to use that same style forever. Personally, I’ve mixed up diapering options along the way–sometimes opting for cloth, and other times opting for leading alternatives, depending on my baby, baby’s age, and household pace–e.g., if I’m swamped or behind in laundry, I’m less likely to reach for a cloth diaper.
Now, it’s your turn. How do you diaper your baby? What do you think of Earth-friendly diapering alternatives?
