Did you know that the average two year old will have used approximately 6,000 nappies in their lifetime? And each of those takes over 500 years to decompose – if they ever do fully break down. So that’s about 3 million years’ worth of dirty diapers. There are entire species of animals that haven’t survived that long!
We don’t know about you, but we envision our future pretty much anywhere other than in a giant landfill of baby waste. Which is why we love Charlie Banana! Inspired by baby Charlie and her big brother Zachary’s nickname for her, this mum-founded brand is about caring; for little ones and for the environment.
They were nominated as an Earth Champion last year for their eco-friendly cloth nappies; all designed with waste-reduction, chemical-reduction and carbon footprint-reduction in mind. And reducing all that leaves plenty of room for healthy, comfortable and high quality designs!
All their fabrics are carefully selected, and Oeko-Tex certified wherever possible. And for those long journeys, or for when Nanny is babysitting, they’ve even come up with a biodegradable disposable pads; combining the eco-friendly cloth diaper with the ease of disposables. All this and you can get them in a range of vibrant colours!
From Parent Tested Parent Approved 2010 to Mother & Baby 2010/2011, their stacks of awards prove we’re not the first to recognise their brilliance.
So let’s go bananas for Charlie Banana! You can by nappies at the Charlie Banana event on zulily here!
