Why change to reusable items?
  • Around 660 million disposable nappies, sanitary and incontinence products end up in landfill in Australia each year?
  • Every child will use on average 6,000-7,000 nappies before they toilet train. 
  • Over the course of a lifetime, a menstruator will use between 5,000 – 15,000 sanitary products. Most of which will end up in a landfill.
  • During production, disposable nappies use three times more energy and water, and 20 times more raw materials than reusable nappies.
  • It takes one cup of crude oil to make one disposable nappy.
  • Each nappy takes 500+ years to breakdown in landfill, releasing methane in the process (a harmful gas which contributes to global warming).
  • On average, a child will use $3,500 worth of nappies. Reusable nappies can cost you between $500 and $1,500.
  • Reusable nappies can be used from child to child and from household to household. Buying reusable nappies second hand can cut down costs even further.
  • If you use disposable nappies, these go in your landfill/general rubbish bin.
