Companies are recycling baby diapers into insulation, compost and more

The U.K throws away approximately 3 bn disposable diapers each year. And what’s more horrible than the stench is that it can take hundreds of years for each diaper to degrade, which is why companies are developing ways of converting used diapers into pet litter, insulation and compost. One company’s pilot program for recycling diapers has already been deemed a success and now plans are in place to build 5 to 7 specialist recycling facilities in the U.K over the next five years. See here how companies around the world are making something useful from a baby’s business.
