Join the DYCLE-Team!

DYCLE is aiming to be one of the world’s first fully zero-waste, systemic production company. Breaking new ground, by developing a value-chain with multiple income streams - producing high quality ecological products, at competitive prices, whilst building community along the way. This is innovation at all levels:- from production, to the product, to the relationships with parents and babies, and healthy soil.

Our mission is to create a global network of decentralized, diaper producers around the world - each using their own local resources as material inputs for production, and all parts of this network collaborating together.

What we do:

DYCLE  is building communities around parents and babies, offering a 100% bio-based, and 100% compostable, diaper inlay. The inlays are collected within the community and transformed into high quality soil substrate. This soil substrate is then used to support the growth of newly planted fruit and nut trees, closing the loop in the cycle.

Currently we are developing our own diaper production line and preparing the publication of our first guidelines book. With the technological solutions and guidelines, we want to spread our vision to other cities and countries, and support the implementation of the system as soon as possible.

To realise your our ambitions, we are looking for 4 interns who want to to contribute to your journey. We offer a part-time internship (15-20 hours per week)..
