Diapers (of some form) are inevitable when you become a mom. What I didn't realize was that options went beyond disposable and cloth. Another popular option is gPants, a colorful line of adorable diaper covers with 100% biodegradable* disposable inserts.
As gentle on the earth as it is on babies, gDiapers was launched in Kim and Jason Graham-Nye in 2005 when they had a baby on the way and a diaper decision to make. They found out some staggering, and literally earth-shattering news about conventional disposable diapers such as 20 billion diapers get thrown in the landfill every year in the US and that it takes up to 500 years for disposable diapers to biodegrade.
With those startling stats, they developed the line to not only be environmentally friendly but also easy for parents to use. How it works is simple - you purchase a color of your cover, place and insert in the diaper and dress your baby. The cover can be washed and the inert is disposable and biodegradable.
gDiapers is also connected to everything that is cute for babies, and they recently launched the Grandstand Stripe, a cover that is decked out in red, white and blue with the words "the pursuit of happiness" designed along the bum. Available on gDiapers.com and select retailers on June 5, 2013. Grandstand Stripe will be $21.99.
*gDiapers disposable inserts are biodegradable in home composts per ASTM standards by a third party independent lab (wet ones only). Nothing truly biodegrades in a landfill. So gDiapers gives you options for disposal. Flush, compost or toss. The choice is yours.
