Reusable wipes and nappies: It’s time to ditch the disposables and dive into more sustainable and pocket-friendly choices.

Are you looking for ways to reduce your environmental footprint while caring for your little one?

Choosing reusable nappies and wipes over single-use disposables isn't just about reducing waste — it's a lifestyle choice that promotes action for our climate today and a healthier future for our children. In this blog post, we'll dive into the world of sustainable parenting and explore how simple changes in your everyday routine can make a world of difference.

Did you know that around 250 million single-use nappies are thrown away every day? But fear not, because here at Bambino Mio, we're on a mission to change that. To date, we've saved over 2.6 billion nappies from ending up in landfill or incinerated - talk about making a splash for the planet!

But it's not just nappies that are causing a mess. Baby wipes aren't far behind, with a staggering 1.2 billion wipes are thrown away every day across the world! That’s 450 billion per year!

Reusable wipes are a complete game-changer! Not only are they simple and versatile, but they're also eco-friendly and free from nasty chemicals. Whether you're cleaning sticky hands or removing makeup, these wipes have got you covered. And the best bit… you’re never going to run out!

Now, you might be wondering how reusable nappies actually work. Well, it's simple. Just like disposables, you put them on your baby as usual, but instead of throwing them away, you set them aside for washing day rather than throwing them in the rubbish. Made from super absorbent fabric, our nappies are gentle on your baby's skin and free from any nasty chemicals that can cause irritation.

So, how many nappies do you need? If you're going full-time with reusables, you'll want around 20 nappies in rotation. But don't worry, you can always mix and match with disposables if that suits your lifestyle better.

And the best part? Reusable nappies are better for your baby too. Made from high-performing materials that have been tested for safety, they're free from nasties and gentle on even the smallest bums. Plus, many parents find that their little ones have an easier transition out of nappies and onto the potty.

What other eco swaps can parents make?

  • Choose clothing made from organic cotton, bamboo, or other sustainable materials. Look for brands that prioritise ethical manufacturing practices and use eco-friendly dyes and materials.

  • Opt for toys made from sustainable materials such as wood, organic cotton, or recycled plastics. Avoid toys with excessive packaging and look for durable options that can be passed down or recycled.

  • Making your own baby food at home using fresh, locally sourced ingredients can reduce packaging waste and carbon emissions associated with transportation. It's also a healthier option for your baby.

  • Instead of single-use plastic bags and containers, use reusable food pouches, silicone storage bags, or stainless steel containers for storing snacks and meals when you're on the go.

  • Choose natural and organic skincare products for your baby, free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. Look for brands that use sustainable packaging and ethical sourcing practices.

  • Whenever possible, opt for eco-friendly modes of transportation such as walking, cycling, or using public transit instead of driving. You can also consider car-sharing or investing in an electric or hybrid vehicle.

By incorporating these eco-friendly swaps into your parenting routine, you can reduce your carbon footprint and help create a healthier planet for future generations.
