A good idea: Earth Baby compostable diapers

For my newest addition, I wanted to explore diapers that were not disposable. I considered hybrid, cloth, and compostable and eventually settled on the EarthBaby compostable diapers because of a recommendation from a friend (plus they seemed the easiest!).

What you need to know:

There is a monthly service charge which covers weekly pick-up and delivery as well as the off-site composting. They deliver fresh diapers, wipes, bio-bags, and any supplies (and I also pay for those things too) to my home. The website is pretty easy to use to manage these orders. EarthBaby has (and is continueing to develop) relationships with some area daycares and also delivery/pick-up there as well.

So, for my case, I pay about $29 once a month for the service plus about $30 each week for two packs of diapers and one pack of wipes. Any unopened packs can be exchanged. I accidentally stockpiled several packs of size two and exchanged them for size three with no problem.

Like all diaper services, EarthBaby delivers fresh new diapers and wipes right to your doorstep. Soiled diapers are collected weekly, professionally composted, and turned into nutrient-rich topsoil in just 14 weeks. Earthbaby composted 20,700 pounds this week* and to date over 1,154,662 pounds of diapers have been diverted from Bay Area landfills!

This is not a sponsored post, I’m just a customer. If you want to try them out, let them know that 510families sent ya and maybe they’ll want to sponsor us in the future. No pressure, ok? If you sign up before January 31, you can have one month of FREE service. You can begin delivery anytime this year. Cost of diapers still apply.
