Use cloth nappies

Millions of disposable nappies are used in Britain every day. These nappies are taken to landfill where the plastics they contain take a very long time to break down. Many disposable nappies now have absorbent gels that contain toxic chemicals. These chemicals contaminate the land when they are sent to landfill. Why not try cloth nappies? Modern cloth nappies are soft, reliable and feature colourful, fitted designs with velcro and popper fastenings. This will not only benefit the environment, but it will also save you a lot of money.

Hippins is a company that owns a cloth nappy shop in Manchester. It also has a cloth nappy support group in Aberdeen. The group informs parents about cloth nappies as well as providing them with trial packs and a mail order or online order facility.
