Improving Environmental Quality One Diaper at a Time

Improving Environmental Quality One Diaper at a Time


Bottom Line: EarthBaby is a local compostable diaper service committed to reducing the environmental impact of children by eliminating disposable diapers and wipes from landfills.

EarthBaby was started in 2008 by two Bay Area dads looking for a convenient and environmentally friendly alternative to disposable diapers. Compostable diapers were available from other companies, but no service existed to actually compost them. If compostable diapers are not composted by a licensed commercial compost facility, they still end up in landfills. Thus EarthBaby was born…

EarthBaby’s diaper service is convenient and simple. All you have to do is sign up and place your first order online. The diapers and wipes are then delivered to your door, and every week EarthBaby drivers will pick up the dirty diapers, regardless of whether or not you have a new delivery of diapers. Finally, the dirty diapers compost in just 14 weeks and the finished compost is sold commercially as blended topsoil and used for landscaping, sod growing, and roadside plantation projects.

Disposable diapers are the 3rd largest contributor (by volume) to U.S. landfill sites today1.EarthBaby is a great choice for single-use compostable diapers because it provides a closed loop for compostable diapers (delivery, pick up, and professional composting of dirty diapers) and ensures that diapers stay out of landfills. Since its inception, the EarthBaby compostable diaper service has diverted 2,908,849 pounds (and counting!) of dirty diapers from landfills.

Take Action:

EarthBaby offers a variety of Nature Babycare diapers, pull on pants, and wipes.
