Tagged in:

It's World Ocean Day and at TotsBots we try to do as much as we can to help our planet!

Did you know, TotsBots was one of the first companies in the world to make reusable nappies out of plastic bottles? Every nappy saves 2 plastic bottles from ending up in landfill! So not only are you saving nappies from going into landfill, your also diverting 2 plastic bottles sitting in landfill.

As it's World Ocean Day, we've put together 5 easy changes you can make to help reduce your use of single use plastic and help protect our beautiful oceans.

Switch your plastic bottle for a reusable one!

Plastic bottles are designed to be used once and it's advised to not reuse them again, why not get a reusable bottle that you can refill and use?! There are so many different options to choose from, not only are you using less single-use plastic, you are also saving money by refilling your own bottle!

Start using a reusable bag - goodbye plastic carrier bag

Not only are reusable bags single-use plastic free, they are also much more durable - meaning you're less likely to have your shopping fall through the bottom! Reusable bags are a great swap with so many options on the market to choose from, a simple tote bag that you can leave in the car or carry with you will help you avoid plastic bags, as well as saving you money on buying a plastic carrier bag and having that dreaded cupboard full of them at home!

Choose reuasble wipes rather than single use baby wipes

We know that sometimes a disposable wipe is a quicker and easy option, we totally get it, however you can only use them a single time before they are chucked in the bin. Our TotsBots reuasble wipes can be washed and reused, as well as being chemical free, super-soft and gentle, and of course perfect for when nature calls or when there are sticky hands and faces about.


Choose reusable wipes for you!

You didn't think we'd leave you out did you? We also have face and body wipes for adults that are a perfect swap from disposables.From removing make-up to freshening your nether regions, our Face & Body Wipes are perfect for everything that disposable wipes and pads do.

Swap out disposable nappies for reusables

Last but not least, we of course have reuasble nappies. By swapping just one disposable nappy per day, that could be one in the day, or one at night, you are saving 365 nappies from ending up in landfill. Our motto is and always will be slow and steady when it comes to making the switch, so why not try just one reusable nappy to begin with and go from there. Not only are you saving a nappy from going into landfill, your also saving 2 plastic bottles that have been recycled and made into a nappy!
