What’s next?

It’s our ambition to create a nappy that is more sustainable from source, through production and post-life, that doesn’t compromise on our commitment to delivering the best care for babies. In the meantime, we are focused on the following:

We are committed to reducing the impact of our products and have a goal to include 75% biodegradable, recyclable or recycled material by 2030.

Currently there is no option in Australia or New Zealand to fully recycle disposable nappies. We continue to back local innovation and lobby for government support, with a goal to commence (at least) one nappy recycling trial by 2022.

What can you do today?

  1. Choose nappy products made from responsibly sourced ingredients.
  2. Properly read nappy disposal instruction and never flush down the toilet.
  3. Never throw away unused nappies. Either swap with friends or donate to families in need.
