Cloth nappies (aka reusable nappies) not only divert waste from landfill, they can also be up to 40% better for the environment than using disposables, helping parents actively combat their carbon footprint:
- 4000 disposable nappies PER baby = 1 bin bag a week to landfill
- Buy 20 cloth nappies and reuse over and over again!
- Wash in full loads at 40°C
- Use A-rated appliances
- Avoid tumble-drying
- Do not soak
- Do not iron
Parents can save around €500 when using cloth nappies over disposables, more if the cloth nappies are reused on other babies - this is an important saving in the current economic climate.
