Company Description

gDiapers makes eco-friendly disposable diaper inserts.

According to gDiapers, conventional disposable diapers are the 3rd largest contributor to landfills worldwide, despite the fact that only 5% of the population uses them, and a single disposable diaper can take up to 500 years to biodegrade. gDiapers co-founders Jason and Kim Graham-Nye felt that the traditional alternative, cloth diapers, required too much water to be ultimately sustainable — they wanted a solution that would be convenient without sacrificing fit, function, or environmental integrity. Made from cotton and nylon, the inserts can simply be flushed, and the wet-only inserts can even be composted — less trash, less laundry, and less waste. gDiapers also partners with Every Mother Counts, a non-profit dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for all mothers.

Jason and Kim conceived of gDiapers when they were beginning to think about starting a family of their own. What was originally a small idea has grown to encompass a community of like-minded parents looking to make a difference. The gDiaper approach to product design “goes beyond troubleshooting how to minimize waste, or how to prolong a product that will ultimately become waste, and instead encourages us to rethink the conditions that shape our designs in the first place.”
