Reusable nappy brand, TotsBots, is set to roll out to 440 Boots stores from 17 February 2020, making reusable nappies more accessible on the high street.
Based in Glasgow, TotsBots designs and manufactures sustainably sourced, environmentally friendly and award-winning reusable nappies made from recycled plastic-bottles in the UK.
As a result of increasing consumer demand for kinder, eco-friendly options for their baby, this extensive roll out is perfect timing to introduce the zero-waste nappy range by making it more accessible for parents shopping locally. More and more parents are becoming increasingly eco-conscious in their buying choices by changing their shopping behaviour to cut waste, select sustainable UK brands and reduce their direct impact to the environment.
Fiona Smyth, Co-Founder TotsBots, says,
“we have spent 19 years developing, manufacturing and selling sustainable and environmentally friendly nappies inspiring and enabling parents to make choices that have a positive environmental impact for the future of their children. In the early days, reusables were a very hard sell but as the war on plastic grows, we are seeing more and more parents actively looking to make the switch. We are absolutely delighted to be teaming up with Boots as by having such a large high street presence. It will now be easier than ever to make the switch.”
The market for disposable nappies has struggled in recent years and is estimated to be declining at 6% per annum, as the consumer backlash against single use plastics increases. Reusable nappies are said to make a significant contribution to reducing the number of nappies that end up in landfill.
