Eco-Friendly Diapers

Concern for the planet and whether or not I contribute to trashing it is on my mind a lot these days. In fact, just yesterday my husband and I got in an argument because I scolded him for letting the water run while he scrubbed dishes. (He rightfully reminded me that I am notorious for leaving lights on around the house when I’m in other rooms…Something I’m now working on.)

One thing that did not escape my conscience before Viva potty trained a few months ago was that we were knowingly contributing to the annual 3.5 million tons of diapers that go into landfill.

By all accounts there is no absolutely eco-friendly way to diaper your baby. While one can join the infant potty training trend that’s sweeping the nation, previously the only other option has been to go with cloth diapers, which require a substantial amount of water usage to clean them–and hence aren’t particularly “green.”

Part reusable, part disposable, G Diapers are pants with flushable inserts, which means the new mommy can lessen her landfill contribution without draining the well of our water resources. At $17 for the reusable diaper “pant” and $52 for 128 flushable diaper inserts they won’t put a hole in your wallet, either.
