There are plenty of brilliant reusable nappies available that are easier to use than you may think. In fact, there are lots of reasons why reusable nappies may be for you.
1. You can try firstLots of brands sell single reusable nappy trial packs so you can see how they work for your baby before buying the 18 to 20 that you’ll eventually need. [Corbis]
2. Better for the environmentBy switching to reusable nappies, you’ll be doing your bit for the environment. Statistics show that three billion disposable nappies are thrown away every year in the UK – almost four per cent of all landfill waste.
‘Reusable nappies are up to 40 per cent better for the environment than disposables in terms of your carbon footprint,’ says Wendy Richards, director of The Reusable Nappy Association. ‘This figure includes calculations for post purchase laundry of reusables and assumes washing at 40-60 degrees and predominantly air drying the nappies.’ [Corbis]
