Getting to the bottom of nappy disposal..........!

 

 

 

Some environmental facts:

Every child wearing disposable nappies will contribute 1-2 tonnes of waste to landfill over their lifetime

Each year 800 million disposable nappies are dumped in landfill in Australia, comprising an estimated 5% of landfill content

Disposable nappies produce 2.3 times more waste water (when being made) adn 60 times more solid waste than washable nappies

It takes one full cup of crude oil to make the plastic for 1 disposable nappy

Disposable nappies use 3.5 times more energy, 90 times more renewable materials than washable nappies and 8 times more non renewable raw materials

Consider the alternatives......
