The gDiaper consists of a machine-washable, reusable cotton "little g pant" and a snap-in, reusable waterproof liner, which contains the diaper refill. These refills are decomposable. Containing no plastic products, they're made from sustainably farmed wood fluff pulp, sodium polyacrylate (SAP), which provides absorbency, and cellulose rayon. And they can be flushed down the toilet, which has a couple of wonderful benefits. First, it eliminates the need to keep smelly diapers around in a diaper pail. Second, it keeps unnecessary waste out of the landfills. And finally, the entire contents of the diaper gets processed by sewage treatment plants, which return treated, completely sanitized solids to be converted into valuable fertilizer. It's recycling at its best!
If you're unable to flush the liners, they can still be thrown in the trash without guilt, since they will decompose in 50 to 150 days -- a much better turnaround than their plastic counterparts. And, if you're a gardener, you can simply throw the wet liners in your compost bin. (Note: for sanitary reasons, never put poopy diapers in the compost.)
As Easy As Traditional Disposables -- but Healthier
Some plumbing systems may have problems with the flushable liners, including systems with tree-infested pipes; non-standard plumbing systems, including grinders or house traps; and septic tanks, which require close monitoring to make sure the outflow is clear. It is recommended that only poopy diapers be put into septic systems, and wet ones be composted.
But even if your plumbing system won't accept the gDiaper flushables, you can always simply throw them in the trash where they'll quickly decompose, making a much more alternative to traditional disposable diapers.

I don't mind enduring this much contact with his diaper parts, but I'm not going to ask someone else to.
I really love that I can flush the flushies, compost them or throw them away knowing that they will degrade and not fill up a landfill.
If you are looking for a diaper that is a cross between a cloth diaper and a disposable...look no further.

I got these on clearance, but they are not good. They leak every time. I have tried it with the disposable inserts and with cloth inserts. The fit is awkward also. Read morePublished on May 21, 2010 by John D. Davidhizar
gdiapers are cute and they fit very nice, but I would say, if you are thinking about cloth inserts you have better options. Read morePublished on October 26, 2009 by justanorange
Just a note: Make sure you use a biodegradable trash bag to throw these out in. Otherwise, they will just sit inside of the plastic bags and won't biodegrade. Read morePublished on July 10, 2009 by E. Bondra
