Though parts of our diapers are compostable, we recommend disposing of them by sending them to a diaper composting facility, or in your regular garbage, rather than composting them yourself as there could be harmful bacteria present. Our wipes can be disposed of the same way.
At Eco Pea Co., we are parents first. We value integrity, honesty and transparency when it comes to the products we bring in to our home, and we know you do too. Unfortunately, that has not always been the norm in the diaper industry, which is why we are committed to being as open as possible about our 'why', and keeping focussed on bringing the best, most mindful and most effective products to market. We believe all businesses have a duty to support and give back to our Mother Earth, which is why we are a proud partner of 1% For The Planet, and why we have worked so hard to make our shipping process carbon neutral.
