People assume that we launched our cloth sanitary products because single use products aren’t environmentally sustainable. Of course, that’s part of the reason. But there’s something else that motivates us. And that’s period poverty.
The idea that it costs a lot to get started with cloth nappies is a myth. Why? Because getting started with reusables doesn't have to cost any more than a pack of single-use nappies.
During the hot weather, what do you prefer to wear - a plastic bag or a natural, breathable fabric like bamboo or cotton? We have the research to back up why reusables are cool.
There’s a myth doing the rounds at the moment that appears fairly harmless. It’s quoted as fact - that you can’t use pocket nappies as night nappies. But getting rid of myths like this is really important if we want reusable nappies to be the new normal.
I know you think I’m mad for using reusable nappies. And I know it’s because you care. I understand that you’re worried about the extra work and the hygiene, and that you want the best for us. But please hear me out as I explain what I am doing.
I've tried these inserts every which way - even day time with one hemp only. Seriously, the boy is nearly two. It's hot at the moment so he's drinking a lot, and he's got to the age where he will hold wees and lets it all go in one big flood. But my new best friend can handle that. My new best friend can handle everything we've thrown at her.
