The gDiaper looks like a step in the right direction, fashionably and sustainably-speaking. Since disposable diapers are the third largest consumer item in landfills and make up about 4% of all solid waste, something had to be done in order to marry the sustainability of cloth diapers and the convenience of disposable ones.

The gDiaper consists of three "layers": washable outer cotton layer called the little G pant, a washable waterproof inner layer, and a flushable poop and peep absorbing insert (which sort of works like an old school maxi pad). When you change your baby’s diaper, you simply remove the flushable insert, toss it in your toilet, and replace it with a new insert.
