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!
Gently in the News
We were delighted that Lismore Council had such great coverage of their Gently launch. Two local papers and even the NBN news.
This weekend apparently, it will be covered in the sunday papers. Here’s hoping that the other councils follow the lead of Lismore and Ballina.
We just heard from one of the councils in NSW that our composting trial was a great success. We are meeting with them next week to discuss and plan for how we can get Gently Inserts into their
green bins. This is the first step towards a real zero waste solution! We’ll post more details next week.
Questions about Gently Inserts Answered
Several of our retail partners have asked me about Gently Inserts. Are they bleached? NO, definitely not. We use no perfumes or bleach when they are manufactured. This is why the bamboo layer is slightly cream coloured rather than bright white which you may be used to with conventional disposables. Do they contain Phthalates? A
good question and the answer is NO. Actually Phthalates are used in certain plastics to soften them and they can be hazardous if ingested by kids. Whilst this is not really a risk with nappies, the answer is that there are no Phthalates in our product.
