Why Choose Cloth

There are many benefits to choosing cloth nappies over disposables. Your baby’s wellbeing, the impact on the planet and your wallets are just to name a few.

Below we have listed the pros to cloth. Let's dissolve the myths.


  • A child will use between 4000 to 6000 disposable nappies. That is a considerable amount sitting in landfill, trying to decompose.
  • It is predicted that one nappy could take 500 years to decompose.
  • In the UK alone 8 million nappies are sent to landfill EVERY DAY! 
  • More water and energy is used in manufacturing single used nappies. Every year one billion trees are cut down to create wood pulp to fill disposable nappies.
  • About 200 litres of water is used to wash a week’s worth of reusable nappies (3 washing loads), whereas 1550 litres which is used to manufacture a weeks worth of single use nappies.

Baby and Parents

  • A cloth nappy baby could save a parent a massive £500, and even further savings if used for a second baby.
  • By the time your little one is two and a half years old, it is estimated that £800 would be spent on disposables.
  • The hardest part for those wanting to cloth diaper is the upfront cost to get set up. This is could range from £150-£300. But once set up there will be not much more investment needed (just a couple of pounds on washing costs a week and disposable liners, if used). 
  • The fantastic thing about cloth nappies is they have a big resale value.
  • It is also been suggested that cloth nappy children potty train sooner than those in in disposables.
