Better for the Environment

More and more new parents are becoming aware of the current Climate Crisis and want to leave a world that their babies can grow up and thrive in. There is now a huge concern about the environmental impact that disposable baby products have, conscious efforts are being made to use products that are good for the environment.

Nappies and the Environment:

Currently in the UK about eight million disposable nappies are thrown away each day, which accounts for about three percent of our household waste. Using real nappies can dramatically reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill and minimise our impact on the environment.

Disposable nappies in landfills take hundreds of years to degrade whereas real nappies not only reduce this waste dramatically, but they have an overall lesser impact on our environment.

Disposable nappies use up to three and a half times more energy to make compared to cloth nappies and contribute around 450,000 tonnes of landfill each year, producing a large amount of carbon emissions.

Disposable nappy manufacture also has a massive impact on the environment. They require huge amounts of pulp and paper, as well as plastics and chemicals and thousands of litres of water that is then deemed undrinkable. They use three times the amount of energy as well as 20 times the raw materials required to make reusable cloth nappies.
