Why Choose Reusable Nappies?
Why choose reusable nappies?
You may be thinking of making the switch from disposable to reusable nappies, or perhaps you are already sold and simply want to know more. But why exactly should you choose reusable nappies?
We could go on and on about the benefits of reusable nappies because we are pretty big fans of these little things, but we will try to keep this short and sweet. Keep reading to learn a bit more about the many benefits of using reusable nappies.
Protect the planet
One of the main reasons parents decide to make the switch is due to the positive effects reusable nappies have on the planet. With disposable nappies taking over 500 years to decompose, they are a huge contributor to the planets waste problems. By choosing reusable over disposable, you’ll save approximately 6000 nappies from landfill per child.
Saves the pennies
Your little one creates a lot of dirty nappies, which can add up very quickly if you are using disposable options. Using reusable nappies will save you money in the long run. Even though the initial investment may be greater as you start to build up your stash, it will average out to save you money in the end. Using reusable nappies will average out at about 0.03p per change compared to 8.7p per disposable. By switching to reusable nappies we estimate that you can save up to £750 per year.
Better for baby
To enhance their performance and comfort, disposable nappies do contain more chemicals and materials that can irritate delicate skin. Whereas all of our reusable nappies are made from organic and natural materials meaning absolutely no nasties or harmful chemicals and they're all super soft. As a result, reusable nappies are less likely to cause nappy rash, eczema and other skin conditions.
Easy to use
Reusable nappies often get a bad reputation for being hard work and trickier to use than the disposable options. When in fact there is not a lot of difference between the two and it really isn't that tricky to make the switch, and we are speaking from experience with the things. Reusable nappies have had a 21st century make over and are now full of clever features and designed with ease in mind. Forget fiddly folds, pins, plastic pants and leaking bulky nappies, cloth nappies really have evolved and are so easy to use.
