First “Cradle to Cradle” Certification goes to gDiapers

| Friday March 3rd, 2006 | 1 Comment

diapersg.jpgThe “Cradle to Cradle” concept pioneered by William McDonogh has been more of an ideal theory than anything that has yet been put into practice. That’s quickly changing. A brand of diapers called gDiapers has been awarded the first ever “Cradle to Cradle” certification for a consumer packaged product.
Disposable diapers are one of the most problematic trash items we’ve got, accounting a surprisingly huge amount of any given landfill. These new diapers, which are still disposable by means of flushing down the toilet, are apparantly quickly biodegradable in a way that does not introduce any harmful chemicals into the water system. You can read more about it on their website. But, with the support of McDonough, who is one of the strictest evaluators for this sort of thing, I’m taking their word for it.
