Better for Baby
Breathable soft natural fabrics, which are absorbent, and gentle on your baby’s skin. No nasty’s, just cloth bum love.
Reusable nappies have evolved a lot. Modern designs make using, washing and drying simple and easy. Find out more about the different types and how to use them on our advice page.
Reduce Waste and Reliance on Single-use Plastic
In the first 2.5 years of a baby’s life, they will have needed at least 4,000 nappy changes. If of the single-use variety, these nappies will be sent to incineration or landfill at a cost to our environment.
Using reusable nappies doesn’t have to mean going full-time to make a difference. Every day you choose to reuse, you will reduce waste and avoid consumption of single-use plastic equivalent to at least 17 plastic bags a day!
The carbon footprint of nappy usage can be reduced by 40% if reusable nappies are used instead of single-use nappies.
Reusable nappies also use 98% fewer raw materials.
Families can make a financial saving of up to £1,000 over 2.5 years. Further savings can be made if using the same reusable nappies on subsequent children.
Buying brand new is also not the only option. A lot of families use preloved reusable nappies, which have been passed-on or picked-up second hand for free.
On Earth Day 22nd April 2021, be part of the change. Pass on a reusable nappy and link our global community together in support of Reusable Nappy Week.
#PassTheNappy shows the benefits reusable nappies have on our environment; that they can be passed-on and reused on subsequent children, whether that be siblings or new families, time and time again, saving millions of single-use nappies from incineration and landfill.
#PassTheNappy video campaign is inspired by the #DontRushChallenge as a way of bringing people together.
How to Get Involved with #PassTheNappy
#PassTheNappy is to demonstrate global reusable nappy use and encourage individuals to pass-on a reusable nappy to support and encourage more parents/carers to get started if they want to.
To get involved with the video campaign, create a very short video (less than 5 seconds long) on your mobile of you or someone else passing on a reusable nappy. Be as creative as you like, with a simple pass from your left to right. Any reusable nappy of choice. It is important that the video has good light and is of high quality. Any background.
When sharing your video on social media – Instagram, Facebook & Twitter – please use #PassTheNappy and #ReusableNappyWeek and tag:
