Protect The Earth
Every year in the US, an estimated 20 billion disposable diapers are added to landfills. Conventional diapers are made from a polyethylene film, for the back sheet, and polypropylene, for the top sheet. These materials are not friendly to the environment. In fact, it takes up to 500 years for conventional diapers to decompose in a landfill, while poisoning our air with methane and other toxic gasses. Fortunately for parents they can now purchase eco-friendly diapers that are both absorbent and contain biodegradable components!
What does biodegradable mean? For a material to be biodegradable it must be able to breakdown and decompose, within a short time period typically in less than a year. Currently a 100% biodegradable diaper is not available on the market, as a diaper has various components made from different type of materials. For a diaper to be more than 50 percent biodegradable plant-based materials like bamboo must be used for top and back sheets. Little Toes bamboo top and back sheets decompose in a landfill when exposed to sunlight in 180 days. Our baby wipes are also made from 100 percent bamboo as well!
At Little Toes we also offer packaging that features a new technology that helps to biodegrade plastic. This new technology developed by Symphony Environmental, a UK company, “accelerates the natural process of oxidation until the product is no longer a plastic” by creating “a material that can be bio-assimilated (ie use as a food source) by bacteria and fungi on land or sea”. Using this waterproof, lightweight, strong and flexible packaging, keeps your baby’s diapers sanitary from the moment they are manufactured and ship to your door. These bags contain no toxic residues and no microplastics and are even suitable for food contact according to FDA & EU guidelines.
Little Toes and its parent company Products On The Go , is committed to protecting the earth by offering biodegradable and eco-friendly products and packaging, that helps you to protect the earth as well.
