List of Environmentally Friendly Disposable Nappies
Everyone wants to live a cleaner life. Sustainability and environmentally friendly products are becoming more accessible to the general public all the time, and there are now assorted ranges of environmentally friendly disposable nappies. Sounds like an oxymoron right?
Yes, these Environmentally Friendly Disposable Nappies are free from chemicals and contain natural ingredients such as bamboo, but are they as good for the environment as they claim? Well, it depends. When deciding on an environmentally disposable nappy, check if they are compostable or biodegradable. Compostable nappies are the best as they break down into nutrients for the soil. On the other hand, biodegradable disposable nappies just break down into smaller and smaller pieces – and although this is good, it is still placing harmful plastics at a micro-scale into our environment.
Bamboo is a great environmentally friendly option for nappies because it is:
- Highly absorbent, taking more than three times its weight in water,
- Naturally hypoallergenic, making it ideal for sensitive skin and eczema sufferers,
- Bamboo Fibres are smooth minimising skin irritation and rash on sensitive areas.
- Naturally antibacterial and has natural deodorising properties,
- Environmentally friendly, growing rapidly with minimal water, no pesticides and a simple farming and planting process,
