"do good" Compostable Diaper Service

I just read an article in today's Star Tribune Fresh duty for diapers about this new recycling service in Minneapolis. It's worth looking into if you or someone you know has been changing a lot of diapers lately.

With Earth Day just around the corner, I was interested to find out more about just how many disposable diapers end up in our landfills each year. According to some online searches I found it's in the billions: between 10-27 billion. One site mentioned that it takes up to five hundred years for them to decompose.







An interesting alternative to cloth, do good diapers is a service that provides diapers that are compostable. You buy a box and then they pick up the diapers and compost
