Gelwear was founded by four students from Yachay Tech University whose goal was to reduce the ecological impact caused by disposable diapers.
Their solution: an eco-friendly, hypoallergenic diaper made with an outer layer of bamboo and an insert made of sugarcane waste. This allows Gelwear diapers to biodegrade 100 times faster than disposable diapers.
The Cuenca Soup Kitchen believes that supporting this Cuenca-based startup is an investment in the future of at risk children, the future of Ecuador, and the future of the planet.
