Did you know?
[highlight_dark]30 billion[/highlight_dark] disposable nappies are thrown away in the world annually
[highlight_dark]150 tonnes[/highlight_dark] of plastic go into making nappies every year
[highlight_dark]1.2 mil tones[/highlight_dark] of tree pulp are used every year in the disposable manufacture
What’s hidden in some disposable nappies? Dioxin (a by-product of bleaching the pulp) which has been linked to cancer, as well as other chemicals and fragrances that can irritate sensitive baby skin.
Compare that to the natural resources used to make and clean three to five dozen cloth nappies.
It’s not ROCKET SCIENCE, it’s a simple change that can easily be made every day, using cloth nappies 24/7 or a mixture of disposables and cloth.
