Eco-Friendly Nappies: What Are They Made From And Where Can I Buy Them?

Baby with Plant Based Nappy

Eco-friendly nappies are here and you will never have to choose between quality and sustainability again!

With your little one’s arrival comes joy, change, and more nappies than you could have ever imagined. Unfortunately, daily use of regular disposable nappies may see up to 200g of plastic being sent to landfill. That's the equivalent of an entire pot of moisturiser or 540 bread tags! This is a staggering amount when you consider just how long your little one may need them, but they are an unavoidable reality, so what’s the solution?

Eco-friendly nappies are a potential alternative to traditional plastic nappies but are they really up to the challenge? Thanks to advances in technology and innovation, products like Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies are proving that choosing an environmentally friendly option doesn't have to mean you miss out on a premium product.

Ecoriginals have combined their world-leading expertise in eco baby care with all the convenience of their disposable counterparts so you will never again have to compromise on quality to make a sustainable choice!

Plant Power

Many parents are reluctant to try eco-friendly nappies as they worry that they will be compromising on absorbency by making the sustainable switch. If you've tried cloth nappies in an attempt to save both your pocket and the environment only to find yourself longing for the ease of a disposable alternative, you're not alone!

Many eco-friendly nappy brands still use a plant/plastic mix in their top sheet, the layer that sits next to the skin, which can cause irritation. Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies are powered by unique Plantcell Technology™ that can hold up to 900mL of liquid in their absorbent core to keep your baby's skin dry and rash-free. The cornstarch top sheet is 100% biodegradable and gentle on delicate skin, and the sustainably sourced FSC wood pulp in the core makes Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies 40% more absorbent than other comparable nappies, offering 12 hours of leak-free, dry-to-the-touch performance. You really can have the best of both worlds!

Natural Protection

When it comes to choosing products for your little one, sustainability and cost are obvious factors, but it's also important to keep their sensitive skin in mind. Is there anything more disheartening when changing a nappy than the sight of an angry nappy rash? By using plant-based materials, Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies are the greenest nappies in the world, ensuring breathability and adequate airflow to minimise irritation and soothe your baby's skin.

Whilst many eco-friendly nappy brands claim to use plant-based materials within the layers of their products, every layer of Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies is made from plants, including the top sheet, back sheet, and core. The nappies are world-leading, 90% biodegradable, and even have compostable packaging! The 100% cotton leg cuffs also take away any worry about unwanted leaks with the added protection of a 3D leak guard to prevent leakage and side spill.

Kind To The Environment

Many eco-friendly nappy brands are not specific about which layers of their products actually contain plant based materials, despite claiming to be biodegradable. As a result, they may be just 40%-60% biodegradable as despite some of the nappy being made from plants, there is still a significant amount of plastic used in each product. Once the nappy has been wrapped up inside itself (as we all do with used nappies!) you might as well be placing it inside a plastic zip-lock bag as the natural biodegrading process is restricted from taking place.

Easy To Purchase

Whilst it may appear that there is extra effort involved in sourcing and purchasing eco-friendly nappies, it's actually a lot easier than you might think! Quality products like Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies are stocked around Australia in many local supermarkets and pharmacies and are also readily available online.

Ecoriginals are committed to customer satisfaction with options to subscribe and save, allowing you to customise the type and frequency of your nappy delivery with ease, and edit, pause, or cancel at any time. If all that wasn't enough, they also offer free shipping and a 100% money-back guarantee so you can try the power of eco-friendly nappies for yourself. Once you do, we doubt you’ll ever want to go back!
