baby stuff swaps
With very few exceptions disposable nappies are mainly made of plastic. By the time they reach two and a half, an average child will have used approximately 6,500 nappies which equates to over 10 tonnes of waste, 40 black sacks per child per year! But you don't have to go down that route as there are plenty of re-usable cloth nappies on the market now.
Make your own, there are lots of easy instruction out there. You can also use flannels and water like they did in the old days. Both of these options are better for you wallet, the baby (no harsh chemicals) and of course the planet.
