Baby In Eco Friendly Mama Bamboo Nappy

Eco nappies have become increasingly popular here in the UK and it’s easy to see why. They provide so many environmental benefits, making use of sustainable materials and not using any nasty chlorine. What’s more, they’re also really soft and comfortable for delicate baby skin, reducing the chance of a painful nappy rash. If you’re looking to buy nappies, then eco nappies are the ideal choice for both the environment and your baby. 


What are Eco Nappies?


As the name suggests, eco nappies are environmentally friendly; they’re designed to be more sustainable than traditional disposable nappies. Whilst the disposable nappies you find in supermarkets are made from a variety of materials such as plastics, paper and lots of chemicals, eco nappies are made from mostly natural materials.


At Mama Bamboo, our eco nappies are made from sustainably certified bamboo viscose, plant-based liners and chlorine-free pulp. Our packaging is also 100% compostable and we even provide bamboo baby wipes that contain a plant-based cleansing formula too. All in all, the natural materials we use are much better for the environment.


In the UK, nearly 8 million nappies are thrown away every day, ending up in landfill sites and negatively affecting the environment. But, with sustainable nappies, this environmental impact can be minimised, benefitting the planet.


Why Choose Eco Nappies?


There are many reasons why eco-friendly nappies are the ideal choice for your baby, and we have taken a look at some of these below;


  • Made from Natural Materials - as we’ve already touched upon, eco nappies are manufactured using natural, sustainable materials such as bamboo. These materials are biodegradable, so they will break down much faster than traditional disposable nappies. 

The inner liner is a corn starch bio-film rather than a standard plastic bag polyethylene liner too and this is 100% compostable. Alongside this, eco nappies are free from harsh chemicals like chlorine as well as latex and PVC. This means that your little one will be kept dry and comfortable whilst wearing them. 


  • Good for Baby’s Health - eco-friendly nappies are better for your baby’s skin. Made from bamboo, our nappies are the softest your baby can wear and they’re not stiff or papery like many other eco brands, reducing uncomfortable nappy rash. 

Bamboo viscose is also naturally breathable and it helps to regulate temperature, just like silk, making our nappies nicer for your baby to wear. Its natural antibacterial properties help to reduce irritation too. 


  • Competitively Priced - in addition to the environmental benefits, you should choose eco nappies as they can be more affordable than you think. When compared to premium ranges of standard disposable nappies, Mama Bamboo eco nappies offer the same benefits and more for your little one. 

As well as one time purchases, we also offer a subscription service that provides a 10% discount, making our nappies even more affordable. Of course, you have the added convenience of them being delivered to your door too.  


Overall, eco nappies are a great alternative to traditional disposable nappies. They are more sustainable and can help to reduce waste, and they are kinder to your baby’s skin, helping to reduce the risk of skin irritations. If you’re looking for more sustainable nappies, then eco nappies are the way to go.

Eco nappies’ rising popularity in the UK stems from their remarkable environmental advantages, utilizing sustainable materials and avoiding harsh chlorine, contributing to a greener planet. Beyond their eco-friendliness, these nappies offer an added perk—they’re exceptionally soft and gentle on delicate baby skin, reducing the likelihood of painful nappy rashes. Their commitment to both environmental sustainability and baby comfort makes eco nappies an ideal choice for conscientious parents seeking the best for their little ones and the planet.

While embracing eco nappies is a step towards a more sustainable diapering approach, it’s equally essential to consider responsible waste management. Organizations like Diaper Recycling Technology (https://diaperrecycling.technology/) play a pivotal role in ensuring the eco-friendly lifecycle of diapers. Their innovative technologies and recycling solutions contribute significantly to reducing the environmental footprint of diaper disposal, aligning perfectly with the ethos of eco nappies. Embracing these eco-conscious choices and supporting initiatives like diaper recycling helps foster a more sustainable future for both babies and the environment.
