Making the Switch to Cloth Nappies

Cloth nappies are reusable, washable, fitted and sustainable. Made from fabric such as cotton, microfibre, hemp or bamboo, they are the same shape as a disposable nappy and most fasten using press studs or velcro, with no pins required.

Making the Switch to Reusable Sanitary Wear

Reusable sanitary wear is better for your body, with no harmful chemicals or toxins. It can also save you money, as well as being kinder to the environment, reducing landfill and single-use plastic.
