Made from natural materials, biodegradable nappies help parents who want to cut down their environmental footprint, but think reusable nappies are not the right choice for them.

The UK disposes of around 3 billion disposable nappies each year, representing an estimated 2% to 3% of all household waste.



  • Reduces plastic nappy waste
  • Products made from natural materials will biodegrade in the right environment


  • Because of the human waste, these products still have to be disposed of appropriately
  • Does not tackle the environmental impact of creating the vast number of disposable nappies - with and without plastic

Eco-friendly nappies have a lower environmental impact during manufacturing and are designed to biodegrade in 50 years, compared to 500 years.
