Did you know?
A baby uses upwards of 4,000 disposable nappies before they are toilet trained. These all end up in landfill, which emits harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Disposable nappies will cost you around $3,000 per child while modern cloth nappies are substantially cheaper and can be reused for multiple children.
