Eco Friendly Baby Products - Delivered all over Ireland Since 1995










Moltex Nature No.1 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 FSC-approved 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 Moltex Eco Nappy, parents can continue to enjoy the standard of living and lifestyle they expect of the 21st century, without costing the earth. With clear advantages over ordinary disposables logically the Moltex Eco Nappy is environmentally superior to washable nappies as well as ordinary disposables.

With a lighter environmental impact Moltex Nature No.1 nappies are the choice of environmentally conscious parents.

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 and that the residual material is suitable as compost.

Many local authorities and composting companies are now accepting Moltex Nature No.1 nappies in their brown bin collection schemes. As of May 2009, CityBins are accepting the Moltex Nature No.1 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 Nature No.1 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 change to Moltex Eco No.1 Eco Nappies, 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 usually by incineration or landfill, with the risk of pollution. 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 Moltex Nature No.1 are made with material from sources certified by The Forestry Stewardship Council. The composting of used Moltex Nature No.1 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 Nature No.1 are the responsible choice of the modern parent.
