Small pic babies diapers

Diapers have been developed and improved over the last few decades with the primary goals of increased efficiency, lower mass, and better experience for the user and the caregiver. However, little attention has been paid to what happens to the diaper after use. Most caregivers view disposal of diapers as a nuisance and a necessary step of using these convenient products. We want to turn disposal of diapers into a more positive experience.

Deliverables

Propose a solution around diaper disposal that provides a tangible benefit to households using diapers and potentially the larger community as well. Keep in mind the following:

• Approximately 70% of the weight of used diapers is urine and feces

• Caregivers are concerned about how to handle and store a lot of used diapers in the home and dealing with the yuck-factor and offensive odor associated with keeping human body waste around the living environment. Solutions which help caregivers feel a sense of satisfaction or delight upon disposing of diapers are highly preferred.

In your proposal, be sure to explain A) how your idea works, B) how it could be

implemented and C) how it could positively impact a household or entire community.

Your solutions could address one or more of the areas below, but do not feel limited if you see an opportunity not covered below.
