Cloth Nappies – What’s Your Excuse?

I’ve worked in the cloth nappy industry for 10 years – I have heard every excuse not to use cloth.

But what excuse will you give your child when they ask about the plastic generation?

What’s your excuse?

It’s not for me!

We are all responsible for the planet that we live on and how we want to hand it over to our children.

Oh I don’t want soiled nappies in my washing machine!

Well you better get used to it.  Poo-explosions go hand in hand with using disposables.  So those poo covered clothes will need washed.

I can’t handle poo!

You are a/or are about to be a parent.  Think this one over.

I don’t have the time!

No your right we don’t have time…plastic pollution and landfill is a serious issue.

It’s too late I didn’t use them with my other kids!

It is never too late to start.  Just one child in nappies from birth to potty uses around 5,000 single-use nappies.

Reasons to Change

  • Landfill reduction
  •  Plastic waste
  •  Reduced bin collections
  • No poo-explosion
  • Reduced nappy rash
  •  Economical
  •  Funky and Fun
  •  Easy to Use
  •  No chemicals and artificial fragrances.

I am sure there are many more….

How to Change

It has never been easier.   There are many online cloth nappy stores and a lot of the large supermarkets and chemists stock some instore.  There are also a number of nappy libraries around the country.  Find your local one here .

Your local NCT may also offer a cloth nappy library my local one in Aberdeen certainly does.

Just take the plunge you won’t regret it!
