Natural Awakenings Tucson

Sunsprout Diaper Delivery Does the Dirty Work Safely

Mar 27, 2013 04:10PM

When we throw away disposable diapers, most end up in our ever-growing municipal landfills, comprising 1 to 3 percent of all solid trash waste in America. Taking hundreds of years to decompose, they continue to leach dioxins into the soil, and if there are feces in the diaper, they can spread bacteria into the groundwater and emit methane gas, a greenhouse gas that is 20 to 25 times worse than carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.

Sun Sprout Diaper Delivery Service uses efficient washers and dryers that can process more than 300 diapers at a time. Each diaper itself can be worn hundreds of times before it is retired and used as a rag. Their delivery vehicle uses an economical diesel engine that gets great mileage in the city. Environmental stewardship and a strong community are the cornerstones of their business philosophy and they strive to constantly improve products and techniques to give customers the best for their baby and the environment.
