For those of you who have ended up browsing our website, it might be because you are looking for an eco-friendly baby gift or mum gift. You might have seen our useful NapNap Voucher but are wondering if it will really be a present that your friend or relative will use: "Can I really give a nappy voucher as a present?" Well, the answer is absolutely (did you really expect us to say no?) and here is why:
- people choose cloth nappies because of the environmental impact disposable nappies have: they take a lot of energy to make, then sit in landfill for hundreds of years. The great thing about cloth nappies is that your friend also gets to make further decisions about the environmental impact of their nappies: they might choose some made out of organic cotton, only line-dry them: it will be their choice according to their lifestyle. And let us reassure you, parents using washables are no martyrs and they do not spend their days with the washing machine on.
- even if your friend is not an eco warrior, they might just be curious and buy a few nappies with your voucher. It might just be enough to use them one day a week. And that's alright! Using 5 cloth nappies will save 650 disposable nappies going to landfill over a 2 1/2-year-period. And your friend will save around £220. I am sure they will thank you for it.... Then, if they like washable nappies, they might ask for more NapNap Vouchers or use Council incentive schemes and save even more money.
- think about your friend's baby's bottom: do you really want him/her to sit in dioxin, sodium polyacrylate gel and tributylin all day long?
- most new parents think they would like to give cloth nappies a try but they do not know where to start so help them out!
For all these reasons, giving your friend a NapNap Voucher will really make their day when they open your present. Add an organic fair trade sleepsuit, battery-free toy or fair trade soft toy and you will get a smile now as well as a hug when they have chosen their new nappies.
And don't forget to take advantage of our sale until 31st January!
