As people across the country are struggling to buy disposable nappies due to panic buying, many people are quickly buying renewables as an eco-friendly solution.  

Renewable nappies are not only better for the environment by cutting down on landfill, but they are a cheaper option in the long run. 

They now sell at Boots and can be purchased for £18.00 for a single nappy that can be washed and reused again and again.  Parents need up to 4 or 5 reusable nappies until the toddler is in pants but because they do not contain toxins, dioxins, and carcinogens, they are gentler on baby’s skin.

One company TotsBots has reported a 700% hike in sales in the past few days alone, and this figure is increasing daily.

The same is happening for Bloom & Nora, an ethical reusable sanitary pad company, that’s also seeing a huge spike in sales right now for such personal essentials.

“It’s a smart choice,” says TotsBots Co-Founder Fiona Smyth, “Disposable nappies and sanitary pads end up in landfill, cost more in the long-run, but at times like this it’s good to know you won’t be stuck if disposable items disappear altogether from the shelves.”
