Are you interested in buying bulk nappies in Australia? There are online options for you to buy eco nappies in bulk nappies and save yourself some dollars. If you are interested in Eco nappies and buying them in bulk, read along to learn more about the details of four genuine Eco nappy brands. Some of them have some great independent eco-credentials worth considering.
Why trying Eco nappies?
We mainly use reusable nappies, but we like to try out Eco Nappies for an occasional disposable option such as travel or other occasions we may require a disposable nappy. Also, we use reusable nappies at night and love to find a greener option than our current disposables. Of course, the nappies have to be super leak-proof, and we require excellent wicking properties to move moisture away from the service to ensure babies’ skin stay dry.
We never used eco nappies before and wondered if it would be one of those products what sounds excellent but have low results such as leaks and poor performance (something we definitely don’t want).
We have trialled four different eco nappy brands, and we share our experience today with you. We ordered four trial packs, (2 nappies per brands) and tested them on my 12-month-old baby (10kilo).
Let’s find out how eco nappies perform and word purchasing in bulk to save yourself a dollar. First of all, what are Eco nappies?
What are Eco Nappies?
Eco nappies are made with less plastic and chemicals and more plant-based materials. It strongly depends per individual nappy brand how much of the material is biodegradable.
When searching for a greener option to replace a regular disposable nappy, be alert of brands practising greenwashing marketing techniques. Look for independent eco-credentials to judge the brand is genuine in their sustainable efforts.
To ensure you reach your personal sustainable goals, check how the nappies you choose will be disposed of most sustainably. Sometimes biodegradable nappies and compostable nappies are getting mixed up, and some confusion is on the topic. However, some eco brands have compostable packaging, be aware that biodegradable nappies are not compostable.
In this review, we review and trial to four eco nappy brands, and we will share our finding with you moving forwards in this review. We will also briefly check in on your options for compostable nappies in Australia.

No wonder Noopii eco nappies have named 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 this nappies. We love Noopii Nappies!
The brand Noopii support several sustainable programs. For every pack of nappies sold, one tree is planted through a particular program. Other programs they support are wildlife recovery programmes and maternal and fetal health programmes.
Muumi Baby 7-14 Kilo
Muumi nappies are manufactured in Finland by a family-owned company. The family are making this nappies for over 35 years. Nordic Swan Eco Label gives a guarantee that Muumi Nappies are a more sustainable choice than regular nappies.
We tried out Muumi nappies, and also these eco nappies have kept my bubs bum dry, no leaks in the morning which is excellent. I find the size not overly generous again, but I suppose I must be spoiled with my Rascal+Friends nappies which have a very high waste of what I love.

Bambo Nature 5-9 Kilo
(Unfortunately, we had size three instead of size 4 to try Bambo nature out, but we will still test Bamboo nature, and I have been reading great things about the brand). We will consider that this size is on the small side of our trial baby) We include the price for both size 3 and 4 to get a good compersion for the cost of nappies from a similar size we would initially use.

Our findings with Bamboo nature.
We tried out Bambo nature even though we should have the next size up, but try the nappies out regardless. The size was okay; I also think though I would have had the next size up the nappies would not have been as generous as the Noopii.
The nappies have a cute bear on the bum, and they kept my bub dry overnight with no leak and a very heavy nappy in the morning. Bambo Nature is okay for us and a slim design for people who prefer a slimmer nappy. I am quite impressed with the eco nappies, and they have beat my expectations thus far.
Our impression on Eco nappies
Eco nappies has definitely impressed us, and none of these eco nappies has let us down.
Most expensive nappy–Moltex
The Moltex nappies work out as the most expensive nappy with $0.99 ct per nappy, and I did find the nappies reasonably tight, especially as this nappy is suitable for the weight rang up till 18 kilos, and my test baby was 10 kilo.
Similar pricing eco nappies -Bamboo Nature, Muumi and Noopii
Bamboo nature, Muumi and Noopi work out pretty much in the same price, ranging between $0.70-$0.75 per nappy.
Our personal preference is Noopii nappy based on performance and comfort. Still, the other tree nappies have the sustainable value of independent eco-credentials, which is word taking in consideration when making a sustainable choice.
Also, the disadvantage of Noopii is their low bulk nappy discount which only $5.00 discount when purchasing in bulk
Bamboo Nature’s gives you the best discount of just of $20,- when purchasing in bulk.
Muumi and Moltex are next in line giving you approx $10,- discount when purchasing in bulk.

Compostable nappies in Australia
Did you know that compostable nappies perform very well and containing no plastic at all?
We were quite excited to learn there are compostable nappies in Australia available endorsed by compost Australia now. The only disappointing fact is that commercial composters in Australia are not quite ready for this innovative sustainable nappy. Only one composter in Brisbane is available for commercial composting of these nappies at this stage.
However, commercials composting can be hard to access; some parent might be interested in composting nappies at home. If you consider composting your own nappies, be aware that biodegradable doesn’t automatically mean compostable as these nappies still contain plastic. Compostable nappies can only be composted at home when using the hot composting technique. The recommendation is wet nappies are to be composted at home only for hygiene reason.
