Why choose re-usable nappies?

Swapping to re-usable nappies is easy, it can save you money and reduce your impact on the environment.

Re-usable nappies are cheaper. It is estimated that the cost of buying and using re-usable nappies is between £182 and £359. The estimated cost of using disposable nappies is £922 (Women's Environmental Network)

Re-usable nappies means less waste to landfill

Nearly 3 billion disposable nappies are thrown away in the UK each year. This works out as 8 million nappies everyday. 90% of these end up in landfill. (Women's Environmental Network)

Re-usable nappies can save energy and resources

The number of disposable nappies used over the average 2.5 years that a child uses nappies is in the region of 3,796. The number of re-usable nappies used for same time is 30 (www.defra.gov.uk - An updated lifecycle assessment study for disposable and re-usable nappies)
