Natural Nappies - processed to enable nature

For the comfort of your child and the health of our planet, Botanic baby recommends that reusable cotton diapers or fully compostable nappies be used as your primary nappy method.


We have sourced a compostable product that really cares about you and your baby. Over the last couple of decades Eenee Designs, an Australian company have created innovative nappies from the softest, most breathable, fit for purpose, environmentally friendly and sustainable materials available. Unlike disposables, these compostable nappies are made primarily of ingredients that will compost when put in the proper environment.


Compostable nappies don't belong in overcrowded landfills. They are able to be aerobically digested which enables the processed product "compost" to benefit the land as a soil conditioner, fertilizer, natural pesticide. In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation, wetland construction .

 

Botanic Baby ensures that they are composted correctly by having a special arrangement with a specialised composting facility and Eenee Designs, to ensure cradle to cradle potential of the nappy is fulfilled. The commercial composter will take the nappies and safely compost them over a few months, without any risk of disease from pathogens (thermally sanitised via aerobic digestion). That's a whole lot safer than disposing of nappies into landfills where they can spread disease and remain to fossilize over 500 years.

You'll sleep easier knowing that if you do choose single use nappies, you can use them with a service that doesn't add to landfill.

 

Eenee Nappies


Eenee nappies provide a completely compostable nappy made of sustainable materials. Meaning it can be processed safely with no need to rip of tabs or remove back-sheets, landing zones, dispersion layers etc. (please see blog compostable vs biodegradable). You simply use the nappy with an Eenee belt, Eenee little pullup pant or botanic baby nappy cover.


What's the processing charge?


When you purchase the nappies from Botanic Baby your processing fee is included in the price and we pick up your compostable nappies and take them to the processor. If you have an existing cloth nappy service and want to combine compostables simply put the compostable in your nappy bin and we will separate them out to send to the processor. We only accept Eenee compostable nappies.
