Eco Friendly Diapers For 2020

With the world becoming more and more aware of the plastic filling our oceans and polluting our little blue planet, single-use synthetic products are slowly giving way to reusable and biodegradable options. You've probably seen it around; paper straws replacing plastic ones, cardboard takeout boxes supplanting Styrofoam. Another green product that you may not have noticed is bundling up the bottoms of the next generation: diapers.



Conventional disposable diapers are made of synthetic materials and chemicals that can take up to 450 years to break down, and with the average child using several thousand single-use diapers before they're potty trained, the amount of preventable waste sitting in the landfill for centuries is astounding.

Thankfully, alternative biodegradable options are beginning to shine! Most commonly made out of bamboo, biodegradable disposable diapers are a green alternative that keep up, and possibly exceed, leading diaper brands. Here are a few to take a look at:


Eco Friendly Premium Bamboo Disposable Diapers by Andy Pandy


Claiming to free your baby from diaper rashes and the ensuing extra products you need to deal with them with their moisture wicking and thermal regulating bamboo, Andy Pandy is a diaper made for moms by a mom. Hypoallergenic and antibacterial, this green diaper has an aloe liner and is ultra soft and offers a no leak lifetime guarantee. An extra bonus on top of all that is that Andy Pandy is partnered with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and some of the proceeds for each purchase goes to this great cause.

Little Toes Naturally Biodegradable Disposable Bamboo Fiber Diaper


Little Toes offers a bamboo biodegradable diaper much like Andy Pandy's. Hypoallergenic, smooth, soft, strong, and able to beat out the “Big Diaper” brands on holding in leaks, according to them. They claim that their green diapers will decompose completely in just 180 days! However, they have a wetness indicator of some form and they clearly state that they use a high quality Super Absorbent Polymer to keep any moisture from leaking, which in some forms may not be biodegradable.
