Why should you consider using modern cloth nappies?
They will save you money – as much as R11 000 on 1 child and up to R26 000 on 2 children.
A single child will use approximately 4140 disposable nappies and generate almost a ton of waste (952kg) by the time they have potty learned. In contrast, a child using cloth nappies will generate roughly 2.2kg of nappy waste. Disposable nappies take 450 years to breakdown!
