We have welcomed baby Arthur to the family and this time round we are doing things a little different to how we have in the past.
With our older children we used a well known disposable brand of nappy and wipes. We were naive to the fact that baby nappies and wipes were full of plastic. Fast and loose advertising slogans such as “made with x amount of cotton” has mislead us all for years to believe that the nappies and wipes were mostly made of natural material. The packaging cleverly diverts you from knowing what the main composition is: Plastic! Only recently through watching television programs such as ‘War on plastic’ and purposefully reading on how to make positive changes to reduce our plastic consumption, have I become aware of how big a problem nappies and wipes are to the environment.
So this time around we have decided to make a change. We sought out more eco-friendly ways of catching the wee’s and poo’s and wiping bums. In doing so we came across Mum&You and this jolly statement:
“M&Y baby wipes are made of plant fibres. They’re plastic free and biodegrade in just 15 days, meaning today’s sticky mess won’t be a problem for tomorrow’s generation. Our eco-nappies are made using wood pulp from certified sustainable forestry and contain no added dyes or lotions. We’re kind to the planet, and your baby’s bum!”
We looked into their products and were really impressed and so we were thrilled when they contacted us to be their ambassadors. One of the brilliant services they provide is the subscription service which you can personalise to meet your needs.
Nappies and wipes delivered direct to your door when you need them.
You can choose to prepay or pay-as-you-go. Using the subscription service can save you up-to 40% on the RRP. However for this month alone they have given me a code that gets you 50% off the first two deliveries if you choose the pay-as-you-go option. Save money and the planet all in one go.
Feel free to share the code with family & friends. But be quick becuase the code expires at the end of October. The code is MOTHERFRECKLE50
If you want to make the swap from plastic to more eco-friendly products then Mum&You are the nappies and wipes to go to. If you have any questions pop them in the comments below or find me on Instagram here.
