Information on why eco-friendly nappies can help reduce waste in our environment.

Using an eco-friendly nappy can help reduce waste in our environment.

1 baby = 5,000 nappies = 1,750 kilograms of domestic waste

Did you know that by the age of two and a half, a baby will have produced a five metre high pile of used disposable nappies that weighs almost one tonne! What's more, disposables will outlive your child by many lifetimes, as it takes 200-500 years for one disposable nappy to decompose.

There is an alternative - washable and compostable nappies, which are quick, easy and economical to use, as well as helping our environment. Find out about modern real nappies at our Nappy Display at the Murrough Environmental Centre, Wicklow Town and at The Bray Recycling Centre.
