How your eco-nappy can fuel your home

Many people ask me if buying our eco nappies is worth it in comparison to other disposables if you don't intend to compost them at home. The answer is YES. YES. 100 times YES. 

Our nappies and wipes are kinder to the environment from the start to the end of their lifecycle.  

In producing our eco-nappies and wipes, you are guaranteed that we are using fewer petrochemicals and energy than in the manufacture of standard polyester / polypropylene/ SAP nappies.

You are also guaranteed that we are not using alcohol, chlorine or latex in their production.

In terms of shipping and carbon footprint, everything that can be done is done to minimise impact. Maximum loads are packed in each shipping container, recyclable cardboard and re-used cardboard boxes are used in all warehouses, waste is carefully recycled and managed throughout the process, and even office printing is kept to a minimum. We think about the green cost of everything we do. 

And we work closely with firms championing new and innovative solutions to offer councils alternatives to landfills to ensure the products are composted or recycled effectively. 

Our eco-nappies can be composted on an industrial scale or they can be turned into fuel pellets and used to power the national grid!

Adult diapers as fuelLifecycle is a brilliant new innovation, owned and run by UK based company, PHS Group, which uses a combination mechanical separation to convert eco-nappies into Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). This is then used as an alternative fuel source to produce hot water and electricity for the National Grid, private companies, and municipal power systems.

 

So in conclusion....YES. Its absolutely worth switching to greener products even if you can't compost at home. Their environmental impact is far less damaging than your standard disposable.
