Why choose real nappies?

Did you know:Babies wearing real nappies

  • Every day Gloucestershire residents throw away over 86,000 disposable nappies!
  • Disposing of disposable nappies costs Gloucestershire over £100,000 per year!
  • Disposable nappies which end up in landfill could take up to 500 years to rot away!

Use real nappies to...

  • Reduce waste - your family can cut its waste in half by switching to real nappies
  • Be kinder to the environment - reusable nappies produce fewer greenhouse gases in their production and use than disposable nappies
  • Save money - you can save up to £600 by switching to reusable nappies. A baby uses about half a tonne of disposable nappies (about 5,000) from birth to potty (2.5 years average)
