The average baby will use 5,000 to 6,000 diapers before they are toliet trained. According to a report from the EPA, disposable diapers make up about 7% of nondurable household waste. DYPER, bamboo diapers, are addressing this environmental issue.

Diapers from DYPER have no latex, alcohol, chlorine, lotion, phthalates or TBT. They’re not printed, not scented and non-toxic for the baby in any way. DYPER are made out of fibers from responsibly-sourced bamboo. Also, they’re packed in bags made with oxo-degradable materials. They can be returned using their optional REDYPER service, which centrally processes and safely composts all those dirty diapers. In fact, DYPER and their REDYPER program have successfully diverted 10.5 million pounds of diaper waste from the nation’s landfills to date. DYPER also purchases carbon offsets to aid with reforestation efforts.

Furthermore, DYPER ships diapers directly to customers on a regular basis. If you need more diapers, use the app to get a quick delivery. The “SOS” feature guarantees that you’ll get an emergency delivery at no extra charge in four hours or less inside of major cities. If you’re somewhere else, you can usually still get diapers within 24 hours.

Additionally, the bamboo fibers are odorless, breathable and soft on the baby’s skin. Bamboo is a quick-growing, sustainable material that needs no fertilizers. The ergonomic design of the diapers is made to fit comfortably, without restricting movement. In other words, they do everything that other types of diapers do without damaging the environment.

Moreover, DYPER makes sustainable, biodegradable disposable diapers and cloth diapers using bamboo and other materials. They’re safe for babies, they’re safe for the planet and they are constructed to keep babies dry and clean and rash-free.

DYPER was created by a father. He was tired of running out of diapers, disapproved of all the chemicals found in commercial diapers and was distressed about the future of the planet and the future of his children.

“We can’t solve every problem, but are trying to do our part to be part of the solution,” said Founder Serio Radovcic. “We didn’t invent landfills and we don’t know what the final solution is. But we do believe that if we can build a better diaper that can be safely composted, we can move in the right direction.”
