Waste reduction

Waste reduction is something that needn’t be hard work. You can take a few simple steps to cut down on the amount of waste that you produce. This week is waste free parenting week, so I thought that it might be a good idea to talk about some of the products that we have, that can help cut down the amount of rubbish you produce.

Waste reduction

Waste free babies

It will perhaps be no surprise that one of the main things that we can help with, is reusable nappies. Disposable nappies produce a huge amount of waste. There have been a number of reports that have looked at the environmental impact of using cloth or disposable nappies. Something that a lot of these reports haven’t even considered, is the disposal of nappies. Single use nappies are made with plastic and chemicals. Neither of which are particularly good for the environment. Plastic from nappies stays around for a long long time. It doesn’t break down or biodegrade. Switching to cloth can make a huge amount of difference to the amount of rubbish that we produce and have to dispose of. You can see our range of cloth nappies here.

Waste reduction for you

Reducing what we throw away, isn’t just about babies. We also have a large range of reusable menstrual products. While these may seem like small items, when you consider that you use them every month, for thirty to forty years, it soon adds up. Switching to a menstrual cup, washable pads, or a combination of these, can make a huge difference. It will also help your wallet. You can find our selection here.
