Waste Free Parenting Week 2017
Today so many disposable products have become mainstream, relegating once commonly used reusable products into ‘alternative lifestyle’ products.
This makes you wonder at what point the human race lost their ability to see that a reusable product requires less production, creates less waste and overall, costs less money than buying hundreds of the same thing just to use it once.
Waste Free Parenting week is about encouraging parents to build in reusability into their parenting. We’ve listed out some simple ways to add in reusability and do your bit to help our planet.
Cloth Diapers make sense and cents!
A newbown can get changed around 8 – 10 times per day. Over a week that is 80 nappies and before you know it you have a whole rubbish bin of poop filled nappies every week – plus imagine the drain on your wallet!
Added to that, the right cloth nappy adjusts to any baby body size and can leak less. So if you’re currently have leaky disposables that go everywhere, switching to cloth nappies saves on mess and washing up.

Washable wipes work wonderfully. With an easy make at home wipe solution, or even just plain water, they clear up the messes much quicker and easier than disposables due to their sturdy nature. Why go through 5 wipes per change when you can use just one cloth?
Washable wipes can be made by cutting up a towel or buying some fabric to make your own. Or save yourself the hassle and check out our extra soft, extra easy to use eco-friendly wipes here
Swimming lessons are a popular way to teach babies the basics. But regular swim lessons mean using at least one swim nappy per week – one a baby will wear no more than 30 minutes.
Reusable swim nappies catch ‘everything’ and are a great way to go. Today they come in range of amazing patterns and fabrics. Not only will your child be helping the environment while paddling around, but also look fashionable doing it.
