Product Focus: Gro Baby Bio Soakers

Introduction to the Gro Baby Bio Soakers

Keep the cloth, lose the laundry!

Gro Baby Bio Soakers are a perfect solution for cloth diapering on the go. Use while on vacation, at day care, or running errands. Gro Baby Bio Soakers are biodegradable, compostable, breathable and hypo-allergenic. They are completely fragrance and dye free!

The soaker pads are designed to be used with your Gro Baby Shell. Instead of snapping in the Gro Baby Soaker Pad, simply place the Gro Baby Bio Soaker in your Gro Baby Shell and you are ready to go!

Gro Baby Bio Soakers are the disposable option of choice because they are affordable, durable, leak proof and because they are biodegradable they are safe for the environment! The soakers come in two convenient sizes to ensure the perfect fit for your little one.

Gro Baby Bio Soakers consists of a:

Super Soft Lining :
Certified natural, 100% Ingeo spunbound non-woven fabric.
Compostable to EN13432 (EU) standard and ASTM D 6400 (USA)

Core:
Biodegradable Wood Pulp fibers, contains 3 grams of SAP gel (compared to 10-20 grams in other disposables).

Waterproof Outer:
The Bio-Film used (fecula) is waterproof and 100% natural.
Compostable to the following standard: EN 13432 (EU)

To properly “dispose” of your biodegradable soaker pads:

Compost - Remove any solid matter and compost in your garden. Compostable to EU and USA composting standards.

Dispose - Biodegradable soaker pads are plastic-free, they will break down in a landfill in 50-150 days (Disposables take up to 500 years).

Flush - You can flush your soaker pads. Simply tear open your pad and empty the core contents into the toilet. Throw outer away.

This is such an interesting idea! It would be great to win them in this week's giveaway!

I think they are such a good idea, however part of the reason we do cd is to save money and these inserts cost more than disposables for an on the go solution. If the inserts were more competitive in price I would be totally interested in the investment.

I wonder why they didn't make the whole insert flushable, like g-diapers?

J said...

I would definitely be willing to try these. I will have to look into them.

I'm with Arizona Girl - to pricey, I'd rather just carry a wet bag.

I already have gDiapers cloth pants & plastic liners. These GroBaby Bio Soakers look very similar, if not identical, to the gDiaper flushable inserts. Does anyone know--are they cross-compatible? Could I use these bio soakers in my gDiapers? These inserts are actually quite a bit cheaper than the gDiaper flushables. I would imagine if they are the same size they would work just fine...?

Gro Baby diapers are the next diaper I plan on trying (but I'm waiting for the prints to be available!) I think it's a really great idea. I don't plan on using the Bio Soakers often but they will definitely come in handy for traveling. I admit, I'm partial to anything that is one size, you just can't go wrong.
