Parents across the country are struggling to buy disposable nappies due to empty shelves. As a result, many are making an eco-friendly switch to reusable nappies as a safer, alternative option.

Reusable nappies are not only better for the environment by cutting down on landfill, but they are a cheaper option in the long run. Selling at Boots or online, reusable nappies can be purchased for £18.00 for a single nappy and can be washed and reused again and again. Parents need up to 4 or 5 reusable nappies until the toddler is in pants but because they don’t contain toxins, dioxins, and carcinogens, they are gentler on baby’s skin.

One company TotsBots has reported a 700% hike in sales in the past few weeks alone, and this figure is increasing daily.
