Every year in the UK, three billion disposable nappies are used. In Essex alone, over 300,000 are buried in landfill sites every day, where they could take hundreds of years to decompose.
The alternative to this is cloth nappies, which can be more environmentally friendly and could save you over £500 compared with the leading disposable brands.

Cloth nappy events
As part of our commitment to encouraging cloth nappy use, we run a Cloth Nappy network, which hosts nappy events where you can meet with other parents, exchange nappy advice and buy cloth nappies.
For professionals such as midwives and health visitors, there is a free nappy advisory service, as well as a nappy teaching pack.
