Just like most other single use wipes, baby wipes contain plastic. On average a newborn will use up to 37 wipes in a day and up to 8000 in their first year. That’s a lot of plastic ending up in landfills or being flushed down the toilet. Yes, it seems people do still commit this environmental crime with 90% of sewer blockages being down to single use wipes. Many of the single-use baby wipe brands are also full of chemicals and toxins that you wouldn’t feed your baby so you probably don’t want them on your baby’s skin either.
The alternative to disposable wipes is reusable wipes. Our washable wipes are made out of patterned GOTS certified Organic cotton and organic terry cloth on the other side. They are dual sided and generally thicker then disposable wipes and so will do a more efficient job meaning you will use less wipes per nappy change. This pack contains 3x wipes with patterned cotton and terry cloth on the flip side alongside 2 dual sided terry cloth wipes.
Size of wipes: 15cm x 15cm
Pack size: 5 (3 patterned and 2 plain terry cloth)
Our packaging is also plastic-free so please reuse, recycle or compost where possible.
