Yeah, we thought the same thing. How have diapers not changed for so many years? The truth is, big brand diaper companies haven't really needed to come up with another option. When the only thing that matters is stock price and profits, why would they want to spend time and money any other way? Besides... every child poops.
Over 20 billion disposable diapers end up in landfills each year in the U.S. alone, accounting for 3.5 million tons of waste. That's a lot of dumps dumped in dumps. Disposable diapers are the 3rd highest volume consumer item in landfills, and account for 30% of non bio-degradable waste.
Over the course of two years, a single baby accounts for 2000 pounds of discarded disposable in landfills— a literal ton of toxic waste.
We chose bamboo for three reasons: it's crazy soft, ultra absorbent, and grows extremely fast without the need for chemicals, making it a perfect renewable resource.
Bamboo requires less water to produce compared to trees, and reach maturity 10x faster — bamboo can be harvested after 2-3 years, compared to 20-50 years for trees.
