What we know

The UK throws away nearly 3,000,000,000 disposable nappies a year, costing local authorities over

£60 million per annum for disposal, all of which will go through household waste streams which means either incineration or landfill where they can take more than 300 years to break down. Disposable nappies are one of the biggest contributors to single-use plastic waste, the worst cause of contamination in recycling and cost councils and parents too much money whilst damaging the environment.

What we do

The Nappy Alliance exists to tackle this problem that our country and planet faces. We are a coalition of independent providers of reusable nappies which exists to promote the economic and environmental benefits of reusable nappies and greater consumer choice for new parents. We look to:

  • Promote the use of reusable nappy schemes by local councils
  • Support government targets to cut down avoidable plastic waste
  • Reverse the pollution of our planet through the consumption of disposable nappies
