Disadvantages of non biodegradable disposable nappies
In case of disposable nappies, there are quite a few disadvantages, leaving the convenience factor. You can notice white granules inside when you cut open an ordinary disposable nappy. These granules are actually acrylic acid polymer salts that turn to gel when exposed to liquid matter. Though these granules serve as absorbents, they form a gel and stay on the baby’s skin. A few parents have found that these chemicals cause rashes and various other skin allergies on the baby. In addition, these disposable nappies are non biodegradable and so cause huge landfills that in turn pose serious environmental threats. Also, these nappies are quite expensive and their cost has always been a nightmare for parents.
In order to combat the issues caused by these nappies, manufacturers started producing eco-friendly disposable nappies. These compostable nappies are completely organic nappies and do not cause any harm or discomfort to the baby.
Benefits of using organic nappies
Parents who want to limit the negative impact on the environment choose to buy the new organic nappies that are mostly biodegradable. These nappies are made from organic materials that do not harm the environment and are easily compostable. Moreover, these nappies do not have any chemical gel or artificial scent, so they are soft and safe on the baby’s skin. Besides, companies that manufacture these organic newborn nappies do not use synthetic material in packaging as well. There are no bleaching agents used in these nappies and they are mostly made from a cotton blender. The good news is that they are dye, perfume and latex free.
When these organic nappies are disposed, they break down much quicker than the conventional disposable diapers. Parents can get these nappies in a variety of sizes, styles, shapes, colours and prices.
In order to reduce the burden of the expense involved, parents can consider buying bulk nappies in online or offline stores. By ordering in bulk, parents get special offers and unbelievable reduction in prices. It is better to go for a well established brand so as to avoid disappointments. Parents should consider confirming the size required by first buying in small quantities and then buying in bulk. Since babies grow faster, buying too many may not be advisable. Parents can make a bulk purchase for a month or two.
