We're sure you'll agree that it's important to leave a gentle footprint on our planet for our kids and future generations. Unfortunately many standard cheaply manufactured disposable nappies consist of a plastic exterior, an inner super-absorbent layer treated with chemicals, and a liner.

These disposable nappies may also contain dyes and dioxin, a carcinogenic by-product of the chlorine bleaching process. Not to mention the hundreds of years disposable nappies take to bio-degrade in landfill.
