5 reasons why reusable swim nappies are better than disposables

Choosing a reusable swim nappy is an earth friendly choice that both your pocket and the planet will love! 

Let's look at why reusable swimming nappies are so much better than disposable nappies:

1. They are significantly cheaper! One pack of disposable swim nappies costs as much as one reusable swim nappy which can be used over and over again.

2. Reusable swim nappies are better for the environment. Disposable swim nappies require more raw materials to make and take over 500 years to decompose. Thats a massive environmental cost for something that's worn for maybe 10 mins in the pool!

3. You don’t have to change them as often. Disposable swim nappies swell up and sag after being in the water. So if you are at the beach or pool for a while, you will go through several disposables. Reusable swim nappies are fast-drying, and you would only need to change in the instance of a number 2.

4. Disposables get heavy & saggy after a swim. Cloth swim nappies hold their shape no matter what.

5. They are easier to change as they snap around the waist rather than being pulled up over sandy thighs covered in sunscreen like disposables. They can also be popped into a wet bag after use vs trying to find a bin for your soggy disposables.

Finally... they are so much cuter!
