A Green Revolution! Parents, dispose of those disposables!

Reusable nappies have increased greatly in popularity over the past few years as more and more parents are becoming conscious about their many benefits.

Better for you - you can save up to £700 by using reusable nappies.
Better for baby - reusable nappies use absorbent fabric rather than chemical gels, which can in turn reduce nappy rash.
Better for the environment - reusable nappies are up to 40% better for the environment than disposables.

Each day 8 million disposable nappies are sent to landfill in the UK alone; this equates to 3 billion nappies being thrown away each year in comparison to only 48 reusable nappies needed throughout a child's nappy wearing years.

A third of parents are now using reusable nappies and even many high profile celebrity parents have opted for cloth from Elton John, Gwyneth Palthrow, Carla Bruni- Sarkozy and Julia Roberts, to name a few. Jessica Alba has also recently launched an eco-friendly parenting website which specialises in eco-friendly, healthy products for babies.

What better way to stay eco-chic than with stylish, modern cloth nappies? Even if one reusable nappy is used per day in place of a disposable it makes a significant contribution to waste reduction and one's overall environmental impact - and saves you some money too!

Bambino Mio, the reusable nappy pioneer, pride themselves on manufacturing a range of products that are stylish, affordable and environmentally friendly. Established in 1997, Bambino Mio was founded by husband and wife team Guy and Jo Schanschieff who, after the birth of their first daughter felt it was important to offer parents not only an environmentally friendly alternative to disposable nappies, but a modern, stylish reusable nappy that could easily integrate into parent's busy lives.

Guy Schanschieff comments, "When becoming a parent, you suddenly reassess the way you look at the world and your impact on the environment suddenly becomes more important as you look to the next generation."

15 years on, Bambino Mio continues to manufacture a range of products including two reusable nappy systems, swim and potty training ranges and accessories that are all designed to provide parents with flexible, reliable and affordable products that help reduce their impact on the environment and are easy to use.
