Did you notice that gDiapers were one of Inhabitots' picks? There is a reason. These eco-friendly diapers offer parents an answer to a messy question...what to do with all that poop.
Developed by a husband and wife team (and parents of two boys) Jason and Kimberley Graham-Nye, gDiapers combine a washable outer pant with a snap-in liner. The liner can be disposed of by flushing, tossing or composting.
According to gDiaper disposable diapers are the third largest contributor to landfills in the world. It's a problem that won't be solved overnight. After some research, the folks at gDiaper came up with a liner which breaks down in 50 to 150 days. Stylish parents (including Julia Roberts) love that these diapers have the sweetest covers around. When I tested them, my favorite feature (other than the cute prints) were that gDiapers' fasten in the back so little hands can't undo the tabs.
They are easy to stock, the refills can be ordered from Amazon (gDiapers Flushable Refills, Small, 40-Count Bags (Pack of 4;$52) and the company is constantly updating the covers. I adore the "good earth" pattern they just released ($18.99; in three sizes).
