1 baby = 5,000 nappies = 1,750 kilograms of domestic waste
Babies need nappies, but which type is the right one?
Did you know that a two and a half-year-old baby will produce a five metre high pile of used disposable nappies that weigh almost one tonne! Disposables will outlive your child by many lifetimes. It takes 200-500 years for one disposable nappy to decompose.
Find out about modern real nappies at our Nappy Display at the Murrough Environmental Centre, Wicklow Town and at The Bray Recycling Centre.
