As a mother of three young children who cares about the environment and our impact on it, I find it somewhat shocking that I have actually never used reusable diapers, even though I’ve made the decision to definitely try them ‘this time around’ prior to every and each of my little ones’ arrival… until now that is! I got introduced to Bambungles by a friend who swears by them, and now I only wish I had met her earlier; they’re fantastic, they’re comfortable and easy to use, my conscious is clear (well, much clearer anyways…) and on top of all this I’m saving a lot of money!
Also incredibly compelling is what Go Real has to say about the matter:
Going real saves money for both parents and our communities. For every year a baby is in nappies, he or she will need nearly 2,000 nappy changes. With potty training averaging at two and a half years, that is nearly 5,000 nappies per child! At an average cost of 16p per disposable, between them parents in England and Wales are spending approximately half a billion pounds on disposable nappies every year.
Recent research by Go Real shows that parents can save anything from £150 to over a £1000 over the lifetime of using nappies, depending on their choice of nappies- those are huge savings for cash-strapped families. (And those savings stack up even further when nappies are used on a second- and a third child…)
Better for the Environment….
Go Real also estimates, with the vast majority of the 813,000 (and rising) babies born in England and Wales each year using disposables, that’s a staggering 3 billion disposable nappies being used- which translates into over 355,000 tonnes of waste produced and an annual disposal cost to local authorities (and taxpayers) of £32 million.
It is not just our local community that benefits, but our wider environment as well. Reports have shown that a 40% carbon saving can be made through using reusable nappies compared to using disposables- and yes that includes the washing!
And remember that sometimes it’s a question of a little bit trial and error until you get it right – just don’t give up! 🙂 We spent over 6 months researching Bambungles before finally choosing the design and starting to Manufacture this particular design and style of bamboo cloth diaper Bambungles
