With the average child using around 3,700 plastic-filled disposable diapers, more than 27 billion end up in US landfills each year where they sit for approximately 500 years before breaking down. Taking advantage of this programme allows customers to reduce the impact of their diapering journey through centralised collection and commercial composting, the company said in a media release.
Responsible diapering company Dyper has announced that its plant-based baby diapers and wipes will be available in most Walmart US stores and on its online platform this month. Made with plant-based materials and without harmful chemicals, Dyper’s diapers and wipes can be returned for disposal via the optional landfill avoidance programme Redyper.
“As a father of three, making responsible diapering accessible and convenient to all families has been on my mind from the day I started this business,” said Sergio Radovcic, founder and CEO of Dyper. “Collaborating with Walmart is a major milestone in our quest to provide a viable alternative to conventional diapers and wipes that don’t sacrifice performance or functionality at an everyday low price.”
“With Dyper, we are adding to a growing portfolio of products that prioritise quality along with value. We are excited to feature these high-performing, plant-based diapers for customers looking for those features,” said Ralph Clare, vice president, merchandising, baby consumables, Walmart US.
