Good for your baby
Nappy rash is a significant concern when it comes to keeping your baby comfortable throughout the day, with fragrances and chemicals used to create standard nappies known to sometimes cause irritation. However, eco-friendly nappies provide a handy solution to this issue as they are designed to be as natural as possible.
For example, many regular nappies are bleached to give them a more aesthetically pleasing appearance, but this can actually be harmful to your baby’s skin. Instead, eco-friendly nappies are often darker in appearance as the wood pulp used to create isn’t artificially brightened.
Meanwhile, many eco-friendly nappies avoid synthetic lotions that are typically added to regular nappies. However, you can have complete confidence that eco-friendly options offer the same kind of performance as any other nappy, keeping your child happy during the day and night.
And good for the earth
It’s estimated that around 3.75 million nappies are thrown away in Australia and New Zealand every day. With the vast majority of these nappies taking an estimated 150 years to break down in landfill, this adds a significant burden to the environment. Fortunately, eco-friendly nappies provide a far more sustainable solution, with most brands on the market using incredibly biodegradable materials to dramatically speed up this process.
There are other environmentally-friendly benefits too. For instance, Bambo Nature’s manufacturing facility recycles 95% of production waste, while Moltex and Ecoriginals use 100% compostable packaging and plant-based ingredients to ensure their products don’t hurt the earth. With the wood pulp needed to make eco-friendly nappies coming from sustainably farmed sources, it’s possible to keep your baby comfortable without impacting the world around us.
