Parents Can Significantly Help the Environment Using Hybrid Nappies, Advises gNappies

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 11, 2011) - Parents or parents-to-be who may have previously discounted the use of non-disposable nappies because of perceived downtime can still make a significant contribution to saving the environment by opting for hybrids, says gNappies.

Previously, parents have had to choose between disposable nappies or cloth nappies – and time constraints or considerations for child carers who are responsible for changing nappies may have prevented them from choosing a cloth nappy option. gNappies is the world's first hybrid solution – meaning that for the first time, a disposable nappy and cloth option is available in one system so that parents can move between the two, dependent on their preference, lifestyle or time constraints. gNapppies biodegradable gRefills are used as the disposable element, and can be home composted or disposed of in the usual domestic waste. gCloth inserts are the washable cloth option. Either can be used with the little gPant, an adorable soft, cotton, nappy cover.

Says Kim Graham-Nye, who was recently named in the exclusive Fortune 100 Most Powerful Women Entrepreneurs list: "Being environmentally friendly isn't always entirely convenient for some people – therefore they may discount even thinking about eco-friendly nappies, believing it's not viable for them. However, gNappies offers both options in one system, and both are environmentally friendly. Even if parents choose not to use the gCloth option regularly or even at all, they can be safe in the knowledge that the gRefills are biodegradable – unlike regular disposable nappies, which take an astonishing 500 years to fully decompose. With around 11.2 million of them going into UK landfill every day, it doesn't take a lot of working out to realise this isn't good for the environment."

Conventional disposable nappies are the third largest contributors to landfills in the world despite only five per cent of the population using them – so parents choosing gNappies really are making a valid contribution to the future of the environment.

In addition to helping protect the environment, the gNappies range is stylish – the nappy 'pants' come in a range of colours, patterns and sizes. The dedicated gNappies UK website features all the products as well as gBundle starter packs. Visit
