LONDON, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
As Real Nappy Week runs this week (16th - 22nd April), gNappies, an eco-friendly nappy provider, backs the event's aim of dispelling misconceptions about non-disposable options. Research carried out by Go Real, the organisation behind Real Nappy Week, found that many parents are put off non-disposable options, believing they are messy and time consuming. gNappies' approach to changing nappies is that it should be a beautiful ritual - the gNappies system: using adorable washable gPants nappy cover with a 100% biodegradable insert, means you can feel good about a small environmental footprint without compromising on convenience.
Real Nappy Week combines local events, advice and information and giveaways to raise awareness of non-disposable nappy options. gNappies shares this eco-friendly approach to minimise the effects of disposable nappies on the planet and is providing Real Nappy Advisors all over the UK with samples, information and special offers to support Real Nappy Week events.
Kim Graham-Nye, gNappies co-founder, said: "We founded gNappies after we discovered shocking statistics about the contribution disposable nappies make to landfill, as the third single biggest contributor, despite only five per cent of the population using them. We were expecting our first child and wanted an option for our imminent arrival but did not want to commit to cloth and the laundry it involves, which wasn't viable at the time as we were living in Australia where water conservation is necessary.
"What's great about gNappies is that it offers an eco-friendly option that is still convenient and inspires a little fun in terms of choosing colours and styles to match baby's outfits," she added.
Not only are gNappies eco-friendly but available in a range of colours and styles they can double up as outerwear in the summer months.
Whether it's a baby boy or a baby girl, the gNappies range includes a variety of colours and styles. The biodegradable insert is tucked into the little pouch in the gPants and then easily removed for disposal. The little gPants can then be used again with the next refill, minimising laundry and maximising the cute factor of that day's chosen colour and style. Using gNappies means a cute bottom, small footprint.
Refills can be composted or disposed of in domestic waste. gNappies offers a cloth option for those who want to use a cloth nappy which is versatile and fashionable - or use a combination of disposable and cloth inserts.
The little gPants are available in a variety of sizes, colours and prints. To view the collection, or to learn some hints and tips on using gNappies and changing nappies, visit http://www.gNappies.com.
