Buy Eco Nappies
Good for the environment
Take an important step in helping to reduce land pollution by buying these environmentally friendly and highly biodegradable disposable nappies, or by choosing to use reusable nappies. The disposable nappies listed below are eco friendly because they are highly decomposable, they
are made from renewable resources (over 50% of product) or sustainable sources, and the makers work to ensure that there is minimal pollution during their manufacture. The packaging that they come in is also biodegradable.
Reusable nappies help the environment and they do not fill landfill at all and therefore reduce waste levels, plus they are good for you because they will save you a lot of money as you do not have to keep buying disposable nappies. Of course the natural disadvantage is the fact that they have to be cleaned regularly!

Reusable and washable nappies
Reusable washable nappies went out of fashion somewhat following the introduction of the easier to use and dispose of disposable nappies, however, the sheer numbers of disposable nappies finding their way to landfill and subsequent concern for the environment, has led to a returning interest in reusable nappies. Design has moved on too and you no longer ned to worry about fiddling about with safety pins to attach the nappy securely to your baby's bottom as there are ready made washable nappies for sale which easily attach to your baby just like any disposable nappy. You can find an extensive selection of reusable nappies at eco living website Spirit of Nature (link to reusable nappies).Search for more information about biodegradable eco nappies with the Ecoants web search...
