The UK throws away around three billion disposable nappies every year – that’s roughly eight million per day. These plastic-filled nappies can take up to 500 years to breakdown in landfill.

In Hertfordshire, nappy waste amounts to 15,800 tonnes per year, costing £1.7 million per year to dispose of.

Swapping to reusable nappies, also known as cloth or real nappies, can make a huge difference to the amount of household waste you create.

Parents can also save over £500 by switching from disposables to reusables, with savings increasing further if nappies are used with another child. Even swapping one or two disposables a day can make a big difference.
