PORTLAND, Ore., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Loving the earth starts with the simplest of actions: changing diapers.

(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130326/SF83285) Kim and Jason Graham-Nye founded gDiapers in 2005. 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:
20 billion diapers get thrown in the landfill every year in the US. They are the third largest contributor to landfills.
It takes up to 500 years for disposable diapers to biodegrade.
90% of Americans use disposable diapers.
Today, gDiapers offers a colorful line of adorable diaper covers with 100% biodegradable* disposable inserts. gDiapers are as gentle on the earth as it is on babies. Parents are encouraged to break the habit of putting dirty diapers into the landfill and instead, are given healthier options for disposal: flushing, to put waste where waste belongs; or home-composting the wet ones, to turn diapers into a backyard resource; or even the washable route with the option of cloth inserts. It's no longer the same old cloth vs. disposables diaper debate. The limited edition Global Love gPants will be available on gDiapers.com and select retailers on March 27, 2013, just in time for Earth Day. Price $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.
