Around 8 million disposable nappies are thrown away in Britain every day. Every single child uses on average 5,850 disposable nappies in their lifetime. That`s the same weight as two fully grown Cumbrian dairy cows! Disposable nappies are not biodegradable and may take between 300 - 500 years to break down in landfill sites. Reusable nappies are a much more environmentally friendly and cost effective alternative. More information on our Real Nappy pages
