EarthBaby provides compostable diapers and pull-on pants by Nurture and DYPER. While there are other compostable diapers on the market, after extensive research we believe Nurture and DYPER provide our customers with the best single-use compostable solution. Both DYPER and Nurture diapers are made with plant-based plastics; are 100% chlorine, GMO, and latex free.
EarthBaby offers Nurture compostable diapers in sizes 1-6 and DYPER compostable diapers in size NewBorn-XL.
We also offer DYPER pull-on pants in size Medium-XXL. Diaper sizes and weight recommendations are shown below.

We have worked very hard to provide our customers with a compostable single-use diaper that equals the name-brand disposable diapers in every way: comfort, fit, absorbency, convenience, and cost. Just like disposables, our diapers have hook-and-loop closures and elastic gathers at the legs, making them both comfortable and leak resistant. The absorbent layer in our diapers contains a combination of natural unbleached FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood pulp and super-absorbent gel.
We do not offer pick-up only service. Due to anti-scavenging laws, we are legally restricted to collecting diapering products that have been purchased from EarthBaby. In addition, the only way we can control the integrity of what goes into our composting stream is to provide the diapers that we intend to pick up.



EarthBaby offers compostable wipes from DYPER and Aleva Naturals, both sold in an 80-count package.

 

EarthBaby compostable diaper service is currently limited to the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Unfortunately, some less populated areas are not economical (or environmentally feasible) for us to service at this time. If you are unsure whether you are inside our coverage area, please contact our customer care team so that we can check for you. 
EarthBaby offers two options for diaper collection on our website. You may choose a compostable BioBag or a double-walled 30 gallon paper sack. The compostable BioBags are available in 13 gallon and 33 gallon sizes. The 13 gallon size fits in most diaper hampers or tall kitchen trash cans. Simply collect your diapers in the compostable bag and tie a knot in the top when full. If you choose the 30 gallon paper sack to collect your diapers, simply fold the top and put out for pickup.
Soiled diapers may not be placed directly into a paper grocery bag. When wet, grocery bags are not strong enough to transport soiled diapers. Our drivers will only collect a grocery bag if there is a closed compostable BioBag inside.
Your collection bag may only include diapers/pull-on pants, wipes, nursing pads and bibs that have been purchased from EarthBaby.
If you forget to leave out your soiled diapers, simply put them out the following week.
We will pick up your soiled diapers every week, whether you receive a delivery or not. We come on the same day of the week, every week, on your assigned service day.
It is very easy to change an order on our website. When you sign into your EarthBaby account, simply click on 'View Upcoming Orders' from the menu and click on the Order Number for the date you would like to adjust.

Additionally, under ‘Recurring Items’ you can manage any and all recurring orders you have. If you ever have trouble placing an order, call us and we’ll be happy to assist you.
We recommend that your pick-up and drop-offs take place at your front door. Please contact our customer service department if you require a different pick-up or drop-off location.
The deadline to make changes to any order is 48 hours before it's scheduled to be delivered. If you miss the deadline, please call us and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Orders are delivered in recyclable brown paper bags. 
We certainly recognize that our customers will occasionally travel outside of our delivery area for family vacations. Dealing with your diapers while away from home will be up to your personal preference. We recommend, if it is possible, that you bring your diapers home and add them to your collection bag for normal pickup. We offer convenient travel-sized, compostable storage bags for purchase on our website that are ideal for this purpose. Alternatively, you may choose to dispose of them in the municipal trash collection as you would with traditional disposable diapers. If you are going on vacation, be sure to enter your vacation dates on the "vacation" tab of the ordering page. If you are on vacation for four or more consecutive weeks we can put your account on hold and waive your service fee until you return, as long as we are notified directly (via phone, email, or web chat).
If you are moving within our service area, you can continue service at your new residence without interruption. Please check online to see if your new address is in our coverage area. So that we can best meet your needs in the moving process, please call our office at least one week prior to your move so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
Whether your child has graduated to potty training or you need to cancel for other reasons, simply contact our customer service department via phone, email, or web chat, and we will cancel your account. You can cancel at anytime and your service will end at the end of the current billing cycle. The service fee is non-refundable.
I'm glad you asked!   You can read our full terms and conditions here.

 

Most newborns will go through 60-80 diapers/week (we recommend 2 packs/week).

As your child grows diaper use generally declines to 1 pack a week. For your first order we suggest you purchase 2 packs of diapers, 2 packs of wipes and 1 box of BioBag 13-gallon compostable collection bags.

For your convenience you can purchase these products as part of a New Baby Starter Pack.
You have the choice of placing a one-time order or a recurring order. Recurring orders can be scheduled for every week, every other week, or once every four weeks.
Yes. We recommend you schedule your first delivery 2-3 weeks prior to the birth of your child. We will not charge you a service fee until you start our regular weekly service.

 

A service fee of $33.99 (plus applicable sales tax) is charged every four weeks. This includes delivery, pick-up, and composting of soiled diapers and wipes into safe, nutrient-rich topsoil. Diapers and diapering products are purchased separately based on your individual needs. There is no minimum monthly order.

There is no cost to open or close an account with EarthBaby. There is no long-term contract, and you may cancel your service at any time. There are no hidden fees. We charge a flat service fee (billed once every 4 weeks), competitive prices on the products we sell, plus applicable sales tax.
The service fee for delivery and composting applies to your entire household. Note: This applies to a single family at one delivery address.
According to the California State Board of Equalization, all services that are associated with the transfer of tangible goods are taxable. This also applies to memberships, handling and/or shipping fees.

On a positive note, baby diapers are tax exempt in the state of California!  
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to accept returns of products that have left the control of our delivery team.  We will resume our regular exchange policy as soon as we are able. 

Normal Policy: 
Items purchased from EarthBaby and the monthly service fee are non-refundable. However, we are always happy to accept unopened packs of diapers purchased from us within the past six months for store credit.

In the unlikely event you receive a defective product, EarthBaby will happily replace the product.
We bill you at the end of each week for items you have received that week. Our service fee is billed once every four weeks. We accept payment by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover).

 

Recycling involves reprocessing old materials into new raw materials, which can later be used to create new products. Glass, Plastic, paper, textiles, and metals are commonly recycled. Composting is the natural decaying of biodegradable organic material, producing nutrient rich top-soil. The composting process occurs normally in nature, but very slowly (measured in years). Industrial composting accelerates the natural process of decomposition by actively controlling the composting conditions (temperatures, aeration, carbon, and nitrogen content) that allow aerobic bacteria to thrive, producing the end product in as little as 14 weeks.
No, you cannot compost diapers in your backyard, as it is unsafe. Reaching the high temperatures required to kill harmful bacteria and pathogens found in human waste is difficult and inconsistent when using common home composting techniques. To ensure that the soil produced when our products are composted is 100% safe, we only offer our diapers and wipes as part of our inclusive service, whereby the products are composted in our regulated industrial composting facility.
No. Human waste composting is a very different process than curbside composting for kitchen scraps, lawn trimmings and cardboard. Please do not put soiled diapers in your city composting bin, as it contaminates their composting stream.
