Eco-Friendly Disposable Nappies – ‘pre Cycle’ Your Disposable Nappies By Buying In Bulk

How can you still consider the environment even when using full-time disposables?


Whether you are a hybrid nappy user, making the switch to more eco-friendly nappy choices or a family committed to using modern cloth as much as possible, there may be times when using disposable nappies is the only way to go.

Remember to bulk buy your disposables – it’s more eco-friendly!

When you bulk buy disposable nappies you are making a more eco-friendly choice. Bulk buying is practicing Pre-cycling!

Precycling prevents waste from coming into your home. You will save money buying in bulk – nappies in bigger boxes, or cartons. You are save resources by reducing the packaging needed, the transport costs, the amount of waste.

There are many reasons you may decide to use disposable nappies:

  • you are doing certain types of travelling without access to a washing machine
  • you are visiting relatives who have ‘issues’ with cloth nappies
  • you have a newborn baby that is a pooping fanatic
  • someone in your family is sick
  • your washing machine is on the fritz
  • water restrictions are particularly tight (if you use mainly rain water for instance)
  • or you are simply tired and in need of a washing break.

At these times, instead of reusing cloth nappies, you can ‘pre-cycle’ your disposable nappies!

Precycling is the practice of reducing waste by attempting to avoid bringing into the home ‘things’ which will generate waste. Precycling includes any attempts to reduce the production of waste.

Pre-Cycling includes such practices as:
  • buying consumables in bulk to reduce packaging
  • buying consumables in recyclable packaging over non-recyclable packages
  • avoiding junk mail
  • using electronic media for reading materials (especially throwaway items such as magazines or newspapers.)
Buying bulk nappies is the environmentally friendly way to buy disposables at those times when ‘green living’ families need to rely on these far from green alternatives to modern cloth nappies. You can bulk buy nappies online as well as at local bulk buy nappy warehouses.
Here is an Eco-Goal for you to consider:
What if you looked into getting your next lot of disposables in bulk, to practice pre-cycling as you also save money you can use towards buying some re-usable cloth nappies?
