DYPER partnership with TerraCycle provides first large-scale diaper composting solution
REDYPER program in U.S. provides a sustainable solution for the recovery of used diapers
DYPER, a specialist in eco-friendly infant-care products, recently introduced the first fully compostable diaper available in the over $48 billion industry. The company has also announced a new partnership with TerraCycle to implement the REDYPER national composting program in the U.S. for the recovery of its product.
The new program is meant to provide a turnkey solution for existing and new REDYPER subscribers to return their soiled-diapers for composting. DYPER provides an environmentally-sound, cost-effective and convenient way to receive diapers through a monthly subscription: the REDYPER program. All products are made from responsibly sourced materials that are free of harmful chemicals, prints and scents.
Though composting DYPER diapers at home has always been possible, DYPER says the new TerraCycle partnership and REDYPER program allows everyday families to skip the DIY and help ensure that their used diapers don't add to the more than 20 billion diapers filling landfills in the U.S. yearly.
"We're committed to making diapering effortless for parents, gentle for babies and kind to the planet," said Sergio Radovcic, CEO DYPER, "It wasn't easy to develop the most fully compostable diaper ever created. But, we are thrilled that our partnership with TerraCycle will make it easy for families to keep their used diapers out of landfills."
DYPER subscribers that opt-in to the REDYPER program are provided with bags and a specially designed box engineered to the strictest United Nations HazMat shipping standards. When the box is full, subscribers can download a prepaid shipping label from the DYPER Composting Program page found on the TerraCycle website for easy return of their soiled diapers for composting.
The waste composted through this program will be used in specialized applications, such as for vegetation in highway medians.
"As the first of its kind initiative, the REDYPER Program offers consumers a unique opportunity to responsibly dispose of their soiled diapers, as well as minimize their environmental impact by composting them through TerraCycle," said Tom Szaky, founder and CEO of TerraCycle. "We are pleased to partner with DYPER to drive awareness of this ground-breaking program."
The TerraCycle supported DYPER Composting Program is part of DYPER's ongoing initiative to make eco-friendliness in the baby segment more effective and convenient. Along with being compostable under the right conditions, DYPER's product is made from responsibly-sourced bamboo and free of chlorine, latex, alcohol, perfumes, lotions, PVC, TBT, or Phthalates. Through the brand's smartphone app, DYPER subscribers can also schedule routine deliveries, request expedited shipments in as little as two hours, or ship-back unused diapers. The entire diaper journey is counterbalanced through carbon offsets purchased by DYPER on behalf of subscribers.
Interested consumers can learn more about the program by visiting dyper.com/redyper. For a limited time, REDYPER opt in will be free with a monthly subscription of DYPER. Following the limited time offer, REDYPER will require a monthly maintenance fee of $39.
