Zero Waste Week 2015

September 8, 2015

It’s Zero Waste Week 2015 which runs from September 7th – 13th September 2015

And we celebrate with our gMamas and gDads knowing that we are all doing our bit to minimise waste – using our biodegradable disposable inserts with our colourful soft cotton gPants means that we are contributing to the cause  – after all, the wet inserts can be composted and many of our gCommunity do just that!


If you start out using our gNappies for newborns you are immediately introduced to just how EASY the disposable inserts are, and how quickly the inserts (wet only) compost down – we asked some of our customers, our gCommunity, from newborn to toddler, to share just how convenient they are …

Sarah: I pop our disposable inserts in our garden waste bin so I guess kinda composting!

Beccy: I do and I compost. They just disappear so quickly.

Nicole: We use refills if we are having a day out but when changing them at home we always compost x

Rika: When I had tinys I put them in my dad’s compost.

Diane: We use them now and then to do a stash strip on inserts and dispose of them in the brown bin.

Natalie: We use full time and compost them.

Emma: We use them during the day on non-nursery days as we are mostly out and about and compost where possible.

Victoria: I use disposables and biodegradable nappy bags. We lack garden space to compost but fully intend to once we move house.

Anna: Just use the disposable inserts at night now, and we compost them.

Nathalie: We have used 1 disposable insert/night for more than 2 years and my compost bin is still only a 1/3 full (yes we do compost foodwaste too)! They disappear so quickly! I feel bad when away where we can’t…

* Home composting does not reach internal temperatures high enough to kill the pathogens associated with faeces. You need to reach 55° C. Please do not home compost inserts soiled with poo.
