Eco Friendly Baby Products - Delivered all over Ireland Since 1995










Moltex Eco Nappies are eco friendly disposable baby nappies delivered by Ecobaby Limited. Ecobaby has been delivering eco-friendly baby products throughout Ireland since 1995. We have unequalled expertise in this important area.

Environmentally Friendly Disposables are made with unbleached woodpulp, biodegradable plastic and no unnecessary chemical additives. They are made with a high percentage of re-grown renewable materials. Eco-Nappies are hypoallergenic, perfect for babies with sensitive skin, or where nappy rash is a problem. Compared with washable nappies (diapers) they offer superior levels of environmental protection while allowing busy parents the convenience of disposables. By delivering eco-friendly disposable diapers direct to the door we can save you money, time and effort. At ante-natal classes, more and more parents are hearing from the midwife that the eco-nappy is the disposable nappy they should choose for their newborn baby.

The UK Environment Agency report comparing disposable baby nappies and washable baby nappies concluded that there was little difference between both types in overall environmental impact. Washable, or so-called Real Nappies need water and energy to process them. In Ireland the serious situation regarding energy and water supply, and waste water treatment should discourage all who are thinking of using washable nappies. 

Using the Eco Nappy, parents can continue to enjoy the standard of living and lifestyle they expect of the 21st century, without costing the earth. The Eco Nappy is one of the Different Disposables™ that have advantages over ordinary disposables. Logically therefore, the Moltex Eco Nappy is environmentally superior to washable nappies as well as ordinary disposables.

Containing unbleached woodpulp, they are made with less environmental cost and they are the choice of environmentally conscious parents. Disposable diapers make up a large part of domestic waste.

Ecobaby has carried out a comprehensive trial of nappy composting on a municipal scale. This confirmed that centralised composting of Moltex Eco Nappies is simple to do. It shows that the material left after composting is suitable as compost.

Many local authorities and composting companies are now accepting Moltex Eco Nappies in their brown bin collection schemes. As of May 2009, CityBins are accepting the Moltex Eco Nappies in Galway and Dublin areas where they are operating. Panda Recycling have also allowed Moltex Eco into their brown bins. These initiatives have a double benefit: parents help the environment, and they save money by using a less costly disposal system.

By turning nappies and their contents into compost, carbon is 'locked up' in material that is fed to plants, not to incinerators, It ends up as a growing medium for plants that will further absorb carbon from the atmosphere. Composting means that less material will end up in landfill, where it would produce methane.

Moltex Eco Nappies are manufactured in Germany by Moltex, one of the leading manufacturers of disposable baby diapers. This is the nappy for the eco-friendly baby of today. Environmentally conscious parents are turning to this product in great numbers. Your midwife may recommend eco-nappies in the management of nappy rash. Nappy rash usually responds best to a combination of an unbleached nappy product and exposure to air. Green consumers want green products that are safer for the world we live in. Landfilling or burning nappies represents bad environmental practice. The Moltex Eco Nappy is compostable and has an improved carbon footprint. It is ecologically responsible to choose an alternative waste disposal system, which is what Ecobaby has developed. 

Diaper disposal (nappy disposal) is presently achieved by incineration or landfill dumping. Pollution results from these practices, and washable nappies are not necessarily the answer. Washable diapers require energy consumption, chemicals, and water, and unless one can find low cost organic cotton, bear in mind that cotton production is responsible for a large part of world pesticide use. Trees have to be used in the manufacture of disposable diapers, so the composting of used Moltex Eco nappies ensures that the carbon in the nappy is locked up in the soil. With a growing world population, and pressure on the environment, sustainable development requires us to look at all the alternatives and to make responsible choices. 

Moltex Eco Nappies are the responsible choice of the modern parent.
