Zero waste week with reusable nappies
Become an eco-trendsetter with reusable nappies.
Start off Zero Waste Week with reusable nappies and become an eco-trendsetter! We all know that things have to change and it’s really easy to make small changes, the best we can, to help protect our world from further destruction.
As parents, we can easily end up creating a huge amount of waste in a small amount of time. Between nappies, dirty faces and feeding on the go, you could easily fill 1 carrier bag full of waste per day with your baby. But there are simple answers to this problem, and they come in the shape of reusable nappies and wipes.
An estimated 3 billion nappies are thrown away each year in the UK according to reports by the Wrap (WASTE RESOURCE ACTION PROGRAMME) this is an astonishing number. Add to that the wipes used per change and the mountain grows. With many parents presuming that reusable nappies are a hassle they simply don’t have the time for, we want to reassure you that this little bit of extra time is worth it for you and your baby. Not only are reusable nappies better for the environment, but they are better for your baby’s skin and will save you money too.
This Zero Waste Week why not pop into your local nappy library, see if you could trial a pack of reusable nappies and find out firsthand how easy it actually is. We promise it'll be worth it. If you can’t hire a kit, then we have some great value Trial Kits available on our webstore.
Follow our 'High five' guide (because you deserve one too) which outlines exactly what is needed, we guarantee it isn't as scary as everyone fears:
- 5 minutes to pop in the wash,
- 5 minutes to hang up to dry or pop in the tumble dryer,
- 5 minutes to put away,
- 3 times a week….only 3 extra machine loads, that’s it!
Don't forget you're already doing the washing anyway and the washing machine does all the hard work. This isn't much to help protect your child's future planet.
Even just switching out just one of your baby’s disposable nappies for a reusable nappy will save 365 nappies a year from landfill, and that’s a really good place to start.
We know what changes we have to make; our children’s children will thank us for it. To try TotsBots reusable nappies click here to browse the options and start saving the planet today.
