Disposable diapers can take up to 500 years to decompose in landfills. Cloth diapers are a better option, but can harm the environment and your water bill. A new alternative is gDiapers, flushable inserts made of natural fiber that are 100% biodegradable.

That means everything flushed gets naturally re-absorbed back into the ecosystem, turning waste into a renewable resource.
