Benefits of using real nappies

Cost

On average a baby goes through 5,000 disposable nappies, a cost of around £650 to £1300. A set of 'real' nappies costs £150 or less.

Environmental

In the UK, 8 million nappies a day are sent to landfill. Studies show that you can reduce your environmental impact by up to 40% by choosing reusable nappies.

Convenience and comfort

'Real' nappies are shaped to fit, like disposable nappies. Some can be adjusted to fit from birth up to potty training.

Flexibility

Use 'real' nappies to suit your lifestyle, perhaps switching from reusable, at home, to disposables when out and about. For more information visit the Go Real website.
