On collection day is your bin filled up with disposable nappies? Have you thought instead about trying cloth nappies for your little one(s)? On average, each baby will get through between 4,000 – 6,000 disposable nappies but you’d only need about 25 birth-to-potty cloth nappies. What’s more, by using cloth nappies you could save £1,000 and this even takes into account the cost of washing cloth nappies.
Disposable nappies cannot be recycled and can take hundreds of years to break down. By using cloth nappies you will be reducing the impact on the environment by cutting down the amount of waste going into your black bin.
You can find out more about using cloth nappies on the Recycle for Essex website.
