Why eco nappies are important
Waste, and the disposal there-of, is problem word-wide. In South Africa our landfill sites have reached crisis point and a drastic re-think on how waste is managed is urgently required. As consumers we need to make ourselves aware of these issues because we cannot continue to extract more than the natural world can give back. Have a look at the web site: www.thestoryofstuff.com.
Disposable nappies and the baby industry is a good place to begin the journey of informed consumer. With the birth of your baby comes the birth of a greater sense awareness of their future world.
Each baby goes through an average 5000 - 6000 changes – that amounts to a mountain of waste if you are using disposables.
Why throw away a nappy every time your baby toilets?
With eco manufacturing and eco laundering, cloth nappies can be 7 – 11 times better for the environment. We have based our research on 3 independent studies (2008 Environment Agency report, Women’s Environmental Network, UK, Milieu Centraal April 2008 report, www.milieucentraal.nl – we have a copy in English).
Healthy, natural materials used in manufacturing the Mother Nature range
The types of chemicals found in baby products and disposable nappies are easily absorbed by a baby’s delicate skin. This is a concern for some parents. Some babies are particularly sensitive and develop allergic reactions in the form of rashes. Babies can also react to their own bacteria with the use of cloth nappies but the occurrence of this can be reduced with a sensible washing and changing routine. A study at the University of Bristol concluded that the type of nappy used had no bearing on the occurrence of nappy rash. In other words, factors such as length of exposure to a dirty nappy or chemical reactions are to blame. By using natural fabrics and ingredients the Mother Nature baby range reduces the amount of chemicals your baby is exposed to.
Mother Nature nappies are a trendy design, easy to use and save families thousands of rands
The Mother Nature range has become the tried and tested brand that our stockists and customers depend on for high quality, honest and thoroughly researched green mother and baby products.
Our Nappies are effective because we use 100% Natural Bamboo-Cotton towelling, which is silky soft, durable and highly absorbent with a natural anti-bacterial quality. They are also cleverly designed to be one size that adjusts to fit from birth to potty training, which makes it an uncomplicated nappy system that saves money on purchasing different sizes.
The Covers are great because they are made from a blend of natural soft cotton flannel on the outside with a polyester base; which has been laminated with breathable waterproof polyurethane.
