Children spend around 2.5 years “in diapers.” An average of 5,000 diapers are used by each child in this period, equaling 1 ton of waste. In Croatia junkyards receive approximately 122 million disposable diapers per year.
RODA designs and markets a line of trendy and easy-to-use cloth diapers and accessories, delivering clients value through an eco-friendly, affordable and high-quality alternative to disposable diapers. RODA hires the services of a sheltered workshop that employs people with disabilities to sew and repair diapers.
