View Full Version : why not?
La Que Sabe
just interested, don't want to start a debate or anyone to get nasty...
i'm wondering why people talk about helping the world and what they can do, yet buy nappies like huggies etc when they aren't biodegradable and when there are biodegradable nappies available?
i'm genuinely interested, please don't get angry at me!! :o
Some biodegradable disposables are really expensive and often they only have one kind or less in supermarkets.
Less range, bigger price.
I'm not too surprised.
There is always cloth. ;)

ah ok, i hadn't thought about the cost thing TBH! i guess biodegradable would be more expensive...maybe i should go check prices out myself, i never have before cos i don't use them! ;)
I guess people are different, and like to find a way to contribute but still allow maintenence of a lifestyle they are used to. People in general struggle with change and prefer the familiar.
It's like asking why people drive or don't convert to a more eco friendly car, fuel etc.
I think everyone has a specific thing they focus on when it comes to the environment.
I.e. maybe some people don't drive a car and catch public transport and turn off all electricity for most of the day to make up for things they lack, i.e. nappies.
I use cloth & sposies (well, used to, he's TT now) I used huggies because he got horrible nappy rash with anything else.
Although I don't claim to be environmentally friendly.
Not all 'eco' disposables are better than non-biodegradable ones either.
They all make earth hugging claims, but when you look at the fine print, a lot of these nappies only break down under composting circumstances, which means if they are placed in domestic rubbish and taken to landfill, they won't break down any faster than a Huggies would anyway.
Nappy producers make the same specious claims that other industries do - more natural, better for you etc etc.
