What are Eco Nappies?

Eco nappies are made with less plastic and chemicals and more plant-based materials. As a result, Eco nappies are friendlier for the environment and safer for your baby. Still, it strongly depends on the individual nappy brand how sustainably the nappy is.

It can be challenging to find out how ‘green’ an eco nappy is, and it is essential to remember to look at the whole lifecycle of the nappy to determine how eco-friendly the nappy is. Often, the mistake is made to only look at the disposing of a product, but this is important. It is only one single factor.

An easy way to determine how eco-friendly a nappy is is by choosing brands with high accredited eco-labels. Alternative, researching the brand, visiting the product’s website and asking questions to learn more about a product are great ways to learn a product to meet your lifestyle goals.

Performance of eco nappies

There is quite a choice between different eco nappies; it will depend on your budget and lifestyle goals and which nappy might be the perfect nappy for your baby. But, really are quite a few good brands out there, and sometimes you may have to try a few before you find ‘your’ brand.

You see, every baby is different, and this may sounds cliché, but it is so very true that even the best nappies may work perfectly for one baby and don’t perform for maybe a more havier wetter or a baby with thinner different shaped legs.

When you order a nappy brand for the first time, it will be best to first order a trial pack or at least a single box before purchasing in bulk.

Can you Save with bulk nappies in Australia?

Most brands give discounts on bulk nappies and nappy subscriptions. Still, it enormously varies; how much value is provided for each brand and purchasing in size is worth it.

When you compare prices, keep in mind shipping costs, and you meet the minimal amount spend to receive free shipping. You don’t want to pay for the shipping costs of ordering bulk nappies as the price can add up easily by shipping bulky items.

Subscription is another option to save yourself some dollars. Again, most brands will give you a discount, and generally, you can cancel, pause or change details to your subscription at all times but check the conditions from a nappy subscription before you sign up.

Let’s check out some top leading eco nappies in the industry, shall we?

#1-Moltex

Moltex is an excellent sustainable nappy choice that is manufactured in Germany.

The facility from these green nappies is running on 100% clean electricity.

Please find an overview with some of the sustainable values of Moltex Eco nappies:

Moltex nappies

Cons

  • Minimal discount purchasing in bulk!!
  • Not compostable

Pros

We had no issues with the performance of Moltex nappies, and they are worth considering for parents following an eco-friendly lifestyle looking for a genuinely sustainable nappy choice.

Overall, Amazon doesn’t offer Moltex nappies in bulk, but the price per pack is quite reasonable. Well, at least this would be the case if you are a prime member and are entitled to free shipping; otherwise, shipping nappies is way too expensive and not worth it.

Additionally, you could check out Hello Charlie, who have at this time a special on Moltex Nappies that give you approx $20- savings.

#2 Noopii

We tried out Noopii Eco nappy on our little girl, and we were delighted with this luxurious nappy.


No wonder Noopii eco nappies have named their nappies the luxe because they most definitely are. They are so soft and comfy to feel, and they are generously sized, which I like. We didn’t have any leaks or marks, and I was very impressed with the overall performance and feel. We love Noopii Nappies!

The brand Noopii support several sustainable programs. For example, for every pack of nappies sold, one tree is planted through a specific program. Other programs they support are wildlife recovery programs and maternal and fetal health programmes.

Noopii

Cons

  • Not much discount when purchased in bulk!!
  • Not compostable
  • Not certified with cradle to grave eco-label

Pros

  • Most generous sized eco nappy we trialled
  • Dermatest certification
  • Nappie and packaging contain more than 70% renewable and sustainable materials.

Can you save money purchasing Noopii in bulk?

Hello, Charlie is one of the very few selling points that offer Noopii nappies per carton, and this will work out as the cheapest option we can find; however, the savings with Nooppii is only a couple of dollars.

The savings you can gain purchasing Noopii in bulk are minimal, though. When you buy the Noopii at Catch, they are offered similar pricing as Hello Charlie but keep in mind you have to be a Catch club member to enjoy free shipping above $45-.

Not a member? Doing this is easy, though, as you can sign up for a 30-day free trial with catch, and you can cancel your membership at any time.

If you are residing in New Zeeland, it is most likely cheapest to order straight from Noopii.

#3-Muumi

Muumi nappies are manufactured in Finland by a family-owned company making these nappies for over 35 years.

Muumi is certified with the highly accredited Nordic Swan Eco Label like Bambo Nature, and purchasing a Nordic Swan product will guarantee a product that leaves a smaller eco-footprint.

Some of Mummi’s uniquely features include:

Muumi Nappies

Cons

  • Not compostable
  • Sizing is not very generous

Pros

  • Independently certified with high accredited eco-label
  • Finish asthma certification
  • Biodegradable packaging

Our experience with Muumi Nappies

We tried out Muumi nappies, and these eco nappies performed well for us and left no marks or rashes. On a critical note, we did find the size of Muumi not overly generous.

Is Muumi worth purchasing in Bulk?

When purchased in bulk, nappy Wearhouse has a sharp offer on this nappy, which works out at $0.68 per nappy. The nappy warehouse also offers free shipping over $99-. But in this case, the total amount is $94,95, which mean you will be charged shipping, and things can get expensive.

You can get your hand on Muumi for $0.76 per nappy at Catch (for our research size), and these are sold per pack only, not bulk. Still, other sizes are available per bulk for approximately $99,99 at Catch that can be worth checking out.

You can enjoy the benefits of free shipping with Catch above $45- if you are a member, when can buying from catch make it worth considering.

#4-Bambo Nature

Many individuals in Australia consider Bambo nature the best Eco-friendly nappie In Australia, with impressive certifications with highly respected eco-labels and fair pricing and discount offered when purchased in bulk.

Bambo Nature

Cons

  • Not compostable

Pros

  • Nordic Swan Label
  • Avaialbe in big size bulk packs with great pricing

Our findings with Bamboo nature.

The nappies have a cute bear on the bum, and they kept bub dry overnight with no leak and a very heavy nappy in the morning. So Bambo Nature is okay for us and a slim design for people who prefer a slimmer nappy. We are pretty impressed with the eco nappies, and they have beat my expectations thus far.

Are Bambo Nature worth purchasing in Bulk?

Amazon gives options to purchase Bambo nature in different nappy amounts. However, when purchasing even up to 400 nappies, it brings the nappy down to approx $0,56, which makes it worthwhile while buying Bambo Nature in bulk, well as long as you ensure you have free shipping though.

#5-Ecoriginals

This Australian nappy is made from an impressive 90% of biodegradable ingredients.

Ecoriginals claim to break down within r months on a landfill site if disposed of correctly and optimal landfill side conditions. However, on the downside, Ecoriginals are not certified with an eco-label at this stage; hence we do like how open and transparent this Australian nappy brand is about its sustainable efforts.

Ecorginals

Cons

  • Nappy, not compostable
  • Not certified with independent eco-label

Pros

  • Manufactured in an ISO certified factory
  • 90% plant-based materials
  • Made with FSC certified wood pulp.
  • Compostable packaging (breaks down in 90 days)
  • Money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product.

Our experience with Ecoriginals

However,r we previously have been reading some mixed reviews of customers online regarding the performance of Ecorignals; we have not experienced any issues while we trialled this nappy ourselves.

This Australian nappy brand appears to be confident about their products and offer a ‘money-back guarantee claim advertised on their site.

Ecoriginals encourage you to order the trial pack first before purchasing in bulk or signing up for their subscription. However, nothing can beat the 30% discount on the subscription offer; you can check out the cheapest bulk nappy offer for Ecoriginals.

The nappy shop has the sharpest offer, with $0.71 per nappy purchased in bulk of 132 nappies. But as the order is under $99,- shipping cost will be charged, which will make the nappies more expensive depending on where you are residing. Also, they don’t have this bundle in stock at the moment.

You can also consider a 12 pack bulk which you can mix and match for sizes, and in our example, for the size 10-14 kilo, the nappies came down to $0.79ct with free delivery.

  1. Thank you so very much for your review of these 4 Nappies. For any new parent, it is very important that we have the best interest for your little one’s well being, and skincare. We must all take the time to help our environment any way we can to save our great earth for our children to enjoy when they grow up.

      I currently have a 2 week old, and my wife and I have been talking about either going to cloth nappies or Eco Nappies. If we do cloth diapers we can be them ourselves, and we will not have to throw any nappies in the garbage. If we decide to go with Eco Nappies we can have the peace of mind that we are doing our part to have something that will break down in our compost helping to fertilize our garden as well. 

      I will try a couple of the one’s you reviewed to see how they fit. One of the most important aspects we will take into consideration is the wetness is pulled away from the skin to prevent any breakdown in the skin. Thank you for the great review.
