Reusable Nappies: Doing it for the kids

We think it's best to invest in kids’ futures, that's why our reusable nappies are better than any trust fund

When you think about your baby’s future, questions might swirl around your mind like “how will I safeguard them in years to come?” and “should we get an ISA or Premium Bonds?” But here at TotsBots, we spend more time wondering if there will even be a planet left to open an ISA in…

That’s why when you buy TotsBots reusable nappies, you’re not just stocking up on baby essentials, you're buying into a company that cares enough to give you a real return-on-investment: high-quality products and a brighter, zero-waste future.

Trust in TotsBots

So why choose TotsBots when there are so many other reusable nappy brands on the market? Our mission is to make the best nappies in the world. Everyone claims to be the best, but claims are easy to make. That’s why we’re unbelievably proud to have an Ethical Consumer Best Buy Label. This award is the definitive word on ethical labelling and helps shoppers choose genuinely ethical products. By choosing certified-ethical products, you’re creating demand for the kind of world you want your kids to grow up in — fair, moral, and true.

Cloth bums you can bank on

We put the interest of your little ones first, that’s why we’re always trailblazing new ideas to improve our products. We're the first reusable nappy company in the world to make our waterproof fabric out of recycled polyester yarn. So, you're not just reducing your waste by choosing TotsBots... you’re recycling too! On average, two plastic bottles are diverted from landfill with every TotsBots EasyFit nappy.

Not only are cloth bums better for the environment, but they’re also better for baby’s skin. Our naturally absorbent reusable nappies all Oeko-Tex 100-certified. This means absolutely no nasty chemicals near your wee one’s bot. Single-use throwaway products may cost less in the short-term, but the cost of a happy baby with a breathable bum is priceless!

Nappies that don’t cost the Earth

The upfront cost of reusable nappies can be daunting. But by switching to reusables, you can save up to £750 in the long-run when compared to the cost of disposables — and you can use them on your future children too. Ker-ching!

And of course, your purchase won’t just save your pennies, it’ll help save the planet. And we think that’s worth its weight in gold. Did you know that disposable nappies take up to 500 years to decompose and that so-called "bio-degradable" nappies don't actually break down in landfill. We think that stinks, especially when you realise that babies will have approximately 6,000 nappy changes by the time they’re potty trained.

There’s no question that cloth nappies are better for the environment, but some folks still believe the old myth that washing nappies is bad for the planet. We promise this isn’t the case. The LCA report confirmed that cloth nappies significantly reduce waste and are up to 40% better for the environment than disposables, even taking laundering into consideration.

It’s best to invest

As the old saying goes “buy cheap, buy twice”. And even though the upfront cost of reusable nappies can seem a lot, it actually works out better for you wallet and for the planet our kids are inheriting. And money aside, the true cost of disposables is far greater than any upfront payout for reusables.

And if you do find the cost daunting, please bear in mind it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. We have a variety of smaller kits and single nappies to suit different budgets. If even just one nappy is saved from landfill per day, we’re happy. So, are you ready to join us on our journey to normalise reusables and invest in the waste-free future our kids deserve? The smart money’s on cloth. Pick up a Trial Kit to find out which reusable nappies are right for you.
