Close to 800 million nappies go to Australian landfills on an annual basis.

As they take between 200 and 500 years to breakdown, it means that EVERY disposable nappy is still in landfill.

Share this with your family and friends - there are plenty of modern cloth nappy options available.

That's great to hear Ryan!

My wife and I just started. I have to say it’s definitely not as easy but once you work out how it’s done properly and get the right thing, it can work.

Coconut fibre scrubber, cotton cloth for wiping, and a stainless steel chain mail scrubber for the heavy duty jobs 👌🏻

Same reason shops wrap vegetables and fruit in plastic. Customers buy them.

Then why are those plastic sponges still for sale???

Coconut fibre versions 👍🏻

I haven't seen coconut fibre sponges in Coles....

I used to buy chewing gum all the time but i went off it years ago.and i hate anyone chewing it noisily!!

Yuck!! I'm going to tell my students that!

No wonder I don’t like chewies

To all the people who are surprised by this information...I am genuinely curious....what did you think it was made from? :)

Yes, my yr 8 science teacher would say "If you want to chew plastic, come up here and have a go at the bin."

so that's why I can't stand it

🤢

A lifesaver for some people with dry mouth symptoms.

For anyone who has put Vaseline on their lips, it is also made from oil.
