Did you know that it can take up to 500 years in landfill for a disposable nappy to break down? With the UK alone using about 3 billion nappies per year (yes, you read that right), that’s a lot of rubbish that is continuously piling up with nowhere to go. 

Reusable nappies have come very far from the traditional ones that parents used generations ago. There are a lot of myths out there when it comes to cloth nappies, and as technology has also developed in modern washing machines, you’d be surprised how little extra effort they really take. They also can save you a lot of money, even with the washing costs factored in! 

There are many reasons people use cloth nappies, so whether that be for environmental purposes, to avoid chemicals on your little ones, or solely for budget reasons, they are an excellent alternative to the disposable options that you see on the grocery store shelves.

If you have decided that you’d love to give this sustainable option a go, you can buy nappies new, second hand, and even try hire kits (both local and larger nappy libraries like The Nappy Lady) which are a great option. There are also schemes to help incentivise people to use cloth nappies where you can purchase some nappies with a large discount. 

There is a lot of information available these days, and I am here to personally help to make the transition as seamless as possible.
