Simple Ways To Reduce Plastic Waste Apr 12

Consider nappy alternatives

In the age of convenience, it's easy to depend on disposable nappies but these are a huge contributor to landfill waste. Your little one gets through a lot of nappies, with 3 billion nappies a year ending up on landfill.
We know the idea of reusable nappies can seem scary and hard work but reusable nappies have come a long way since the days of a toweling square loosely held together by a safety pin. Today they are cleverly designed with beautiful prints and come in a variety of different materials looking very similar to disposable nappies.

Not only are reusable nappies better for the environment, they are also better for your purse. Despite the initial pay out at the start for reusable nappies (you'll need around 16-24 nappies in total) it will still be cheaper in the long run than using disposable nappies. Using cloth nappies will average out at about 0.03p per change compared to 8.7p per disposable.

Wooden toys

Make play time a plastic free zone. Plastic toys have been a popular part of every child's toy collection, but we can't get enough of wooden toys and think everyone should make the swap. Not only do wooden toys look gorgeous compared to those brightly colored flashing plastic toys they are also much better for the environment. Remember wood is bio-degradable, plastic is not.

Made from petroleum, most plastic toys contain toxic phthalates, BPA, fire retardants, and other chemicals that are neither safe for your child nor eco-friendly. If that's not enough to convince you to make the swap, wooden toys are also much more durable and don't need any of those constantly running out batteries – Hurrah!

Don't settle for any old wooden toy though, choose ones made from sustainable materials and free from chemicals like plan toys. Plan toys offer a range of imaginative, fun and safe toys created from rubber-wood, a by-product of the latex industry, water-based non-toxic colors and all packaging is recycled.

Eco Teethers

As well as being one of the cutest teethers on the market, it's also one of the most environmentally friendly on the market too. Made from 100% natural rubber sourced from carefully cared for farms, which is fully biodegradable and a perfect safer alternative to plastic teethers that are full on chemicals.

Reusable food pouches

Those colorful pouches full of pre-made baby food are becoming the answer to all over-stretched parent's dreams. Easy, convenient and perfect for on the go! But this convenience comes at a price to your purse AND the environment. These popular disposable pouches are made from multiple layers of materials meaning the recyclable components are impossible to separate out.

Not only are you saving the planet with this one by reducing your amount of waste, you are also helping your little one to eat healthier by preparing their own meals yourselves.
So there you go. Several simple ways to greatly reduce the amount of single use plastic you and your family consume each year.
