"Bay Area Startup Turns Dirty Diapers into Compost"

"SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Fed up with sending their kids' dirty diapers to the local landfill, three Bay Area families launched a business two years ago aimed at turning soiled diapers into compost for farms, golf courses and plant nurseries.

On Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle published a profile of Sunnyvale-based EarthBaby, a compostable diaper service operating in select markets in the Bay Area. According to the company's website, Earthbaby has diverted more than 409,122 pounds of diapers from Bay Area landfills to date."
