Lately we’ve found ourselves trying to make adjustments in our lifestyle in order to reduce the amount of waste our family produces – particularly when it comes to plastics and non-biodegradable materials.
With a baby on the way, one of the biggest areas of concern for us has been finding a reasonable diaper solution. Disposable diapers are unacceptable due to their incredibly negative environmental impact, and cloth diapers are just plain nasty. Without a diaper service in our area, we felt as though there might not be any hope of finding an answer to our dilemma.
Just when we thought all hope was lost, a good friend of ours discovered gDiapers!
gDiapers are completely biodegradable, breaking down in about 50 days in landfills (compared to the 500 years it takes disposable diapers!). But wait, there’s more!
Besides being biodegradable – which is awesome – they’re also flushable! The diapers almost completely break apart and dissolve in the toilet. No more stinky diapers in the garbage!
Cheryl babysits for the friend who discovered them and has had a chance to take gDiapers for a test run. So far the reviews are fabulous! So fabulous, in fact, that we’ve taken the Diaper Genie off the registry (it’s just more plastic waste and they never work that great anyway).
(Those of you in the Rochester area can find gDiapers products at the Wegmans locations in Pittsford and on Latta Rd.)
