Scottsdale, Ariz-based Dyper, an eco-friendly diaper delivery service, said it is making another stride in its mission to divert diapers from landfills with the acquisition of Earth Baby, which has led a regional diaper composting service in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2008.
On the heels of a $20 million investment from The Craftory, a global group, and after making headlines earlier this year with its “compost by mail” Re-Dyper program, Dyper said it is now taking the next step in its eco-promise with the announcement of local market delivery and in-house composting.
“Dyper was created because I knew there had to be a better way to diaper babies with the safest materials,” said Sergio Radovic, CEO and founder of Dyper. “Earth Baby has been a pioneer in the diaper composting space and by marrying our brands we are able to close the loop in the diaper supply chain by offering manufacturing, distribution and in-house composting to complete the diapering cycle in the most earth-friendly way possible.”
The Earth Baby acquisition will enable customers in the San Francisco Bay Area to enjoy easy pickup and delivery of Dyper’s compostable diapers, positioning the company to expand the service into more major cities in the U.S. and ultimately evolve into a full-service eco-friendly baby products’ concierge service, Dyper said.
Founded in 2008, Earth Baby’s founders, Mark Siminoff and Tony Patron, started their company as young parents who were passionate about the planet. Earth Baby was the first and only diaper composting service in the United States at the time, they said.
Patron said more than 20 billion diapers go to U.S. landfills every year.
Siminoff and Patron will remain on the executive team as part of the Dyper acquisition overseeing the Re-Dyper program and logistics including immediate plans for local market expansion in Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and Las Vegas.Follow us on social media:
