Thanks For Being Here...
For looking with your keen eye down the conventional diaper aisle and choosing to go another route. A diaper may be small, but the changes add up in a big way. Use gDiapers disposable inserts inside gPants, reusable diaper covers.
- Every time a disposable diaper is changed it gets thrown in the garbage. That’s over 27 billion diapers that head to US landfills every year. Or more than 4 million tons.
- Nothing truly biodegrades in a landfill. But every time you change a gDiaper, you have a choice. You don’t have to throw it all away. gDiapers gives you options for disposal. Flush, compost, or toss. gDiapers disposable inserts can be home composted (wet ones only, please) and break down in 50-150 days.
- Conventional disposable diapers do not breathe. This is the leading cause of diaper rash. gDiapers are made of breathable materials, which helps keep diaper rash at bay.
- Plus, gDiapers disposable inserts are the only diaper to be certified Cradle to Cradle. It means that everything that goes into our disposable inserts have met 19 human and environmental health criteria and have proven to be re-absorbed back in to the eco-system in a neutral or beneficial way.
How to Use gDiapers
1. Pick a gPant. Any color will do. 2. Tuck in an insert. 3. Close tabs around the back. gDiapers are reusable diaper covers with disposable inserts made of cellulose, fluff pulp, and super absorber. Disposable inserts can be flushed, composted (wet ones only, please), or tossed. When the insert is soiled, simply remove from the gPant, dispose, and tuck in a new insert for a fresh change. Use the same gPant through multiple changes. Change out the snap-in pouch when dirty.
What You Need to Use gDiapers
All you need to use gDiapers are gPants and inserts. If your baby is on the way, the newborn bundle is the perfect place to start. It has just what you need to get going with gDiapers for a brand new baby. If your baby is already here and bigger than the newborn size, we recommend 6-8 gPants in each size. You can buy them individually to hand-pick the colors or prints that you want, or you can choose a bundle for extra convenience.
gDiapers, like any diaper, need to be changed every 2-3 hours (or sooner, if using cloth inserts). A case of disposable inserts will last about 3-4 weeks if used exclusively. The disposable inserts are great for babies with sensitive skin who may be prone to rash in other diaper options. Cloth inserts are also available. They work really well as doublers for when you need extra absorbency. If you plan on using the cloth inserts for regular use, you should have 18-24 inserts per child (or more to go longer between laundry).
