Many people wonder what happens to Gently nappies in landfill where the conditions are variable and not the same as industrial composting conditions. We decided to test this out and placed a Gently Insert in the ground for 6 months. There was no turning of the soil or addition of other materials that might speed up the biodegradation. So really kind of a worst case scenario. As you can see from the attached pictures there was almost nothing left after 6 months!
