Environmental Reasons to Choose Cloth Nappies
|Over 8 million disposable nappies are thrown away in Britain every day
Over 2.5yrs, one child will use approx 6,000 disposable nappies (yes, really!)
Every £l spent on single use nappies costs the Council Tax payer 10p to dispose of them
The total cost nationally for the disposal of nappies is £40 million each year.
Disposables use 90 times more non-renewable material, for example, one cup of crude oil is needed to make one disposable nappy
To keep one baby in disposable nappies for two and a half years, four and a half trees will be cut down to produce the nappies
Re-usable nappies are soft and are made of breathable fabrics, which help to prevent nappy rash
Disposable nappies contain gels and chemicals which are not subject to governmental controls or independent testing.
