Description: gDiapers are a new flushable diapering system, in which a flushable refill is fit inside a snap in liner.

Diapers consist of a washable, cotton outer pant and a plastic free flushable refill. They are made of breathable material just like sports clothing. Babies stay dry and happy and are far less likely to get diaper rash.

When the diaper is soild, remove the pants and let the contests fall into the toilet. It's also okay to toss the flushable refills because they're plastic-free. Or garden compost the wet ones. They'll break down in 50 to 150 days.

Review: If cloth diapers are not for you, another option is the flushable diaper by gDiapers. As their web site says, "Imagine taking your baby's soiled diaper and simply flushing it down the toilet. No more smell. No more diaper. No more diaper pail. You're putting waste right where it belongs, in the toilet. Not in a landfill."

The 'little g' pants are made of water resistant, machine-washable, breathable material to keep wetness away and prevent diaper rash. Each pair of 'little g' pants comes with a spare snap-in liner. You also get a handy swish stick for breaking apart the flushable stuffing, and a H.U.G. also known as the Handy User Guide. After you have a sufficient amount of the reusable pants then all you have to do is purchase the refills.

It can take as long as 500 years for disposable diapers to biodegrade in a landfill. It is comforting to know that we have options that will ensure our baby's diapers will not be around to pollute the earth for generations to come.

Editor's Note: GDiapers were featured as one of Ode Magazine's The 2008 Organic Top 20.
