Around the same time I found Tushies, I heard about Nature Babycare but had trouble locating the actual product to try. So I went with Tushies. I just went back to their site, too, and it looks like the product has changed since I was last on it. Natural Baby Care is now claiming to make:
"the first ECO-friendly high-performance diaper, based on new green technology, protected by a Swedish patent. It has an exclusive 100% chlorine-free absorbent material and the material against the baby's skin is based on corn instead of plastic, like traditional diapers. 100% compostable, breathable and extremely kind for the baby. The packaging is 100% compostable and based on corn."
This sounds very interesting, promising even. On their FAQ page that 100% claim drops down to about 60% unclear which it is. There they also explain that the absorbent pulp is cellulose contained in nature, the tree pulp is FSC certified, and the corn used isn't genetically modified. Worth looking into. Sweden's environmental standards are certainly leaps and bounds ahead of ours.
They have a link to Target.com on their site but I couldn't find them at Target. But they are available at NatureBoyandGirl.net and Drugstore.com. Check out the Drugstore.com reviews - one mom said they managed to compost them all. I don't have a compost pile (ah, New York again) but these sound like an option to try out for people who do.
FYI in a consumer diaper review at TheGreenGuide.com, some parents complain they're too "plastic-y" I guess they mean all of that corn material is slick.
