Thanks to the high-performance power of eco nappies, you will never have to choose between quality and sustainability again!

From the moment they arrive, it is astounding how much of an impact your little one can have. Whilst there’s no denying the joy they bring, having a baby also means more nappies than you could have ever imagined, each with a very real impact of its own. And we’re not just talking about your bank balance.

Daily use of regular disposable nappies may see up to 200g of plastic being sent to landfill. That’s the equivalent of an entire pot of moisturiser or 540 bread tags! This is a staggering amount when you consider just how long your little one may need them. So are eco nappies up to the challenge? Thanks to advances in technology and innovation, products like Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies are proving that choosing an environmentally friendly option doesn’t have to mean you miss out on a premium product.

Ecoriginals have combined their world-leading expertise in eco baby care with all the convenience of their disposable counterparts so you will never have to choose between quality and sustainability again.

Powered By Plants

Many parents are reluctant to try eco nappies as they worry that they will be compromising on absorbency by making the sustainable switch. If you’ve tried cloth nappies in an attempt to save both your pocket and the environment only to find yourself longing for the ease of a disposable alternative, you’re not alone!

Many eco-nappy brands still use a plant/plastic mix in their top sheet, the layer that sits next to the skin, which can cause irritation. Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies allow you to have the best of both worlds, powered by unique Plantcell Technology™ that can hold up to 900mL of liquid in their absorbent core to keep your baby’s skin dry and rash-free. The corn starch top sheet is 100% biodegradable and gentle on delicate skin,  and the sustainably sourced FSC wood pulp in the core makes Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies 40% more absorbent than other comparable nappies, offering 12 hours of leak-free, dry-to-the-touch performance!

Natural Protection

Apart from the issues of cost and sustainability, when it comes to choosing products for your little one, it’s important to keep their delicate skin in mind. Is there anything more disheartening when changing a nappy than the sight of an angry nappy rash? By using natural materials, Ecoriginal’s Eco-Friendly Nappies have created the greenest nappies in the world, ensuring breathability and adequate airflow to minimise irritation and care for your baby’s delicate skin.

Whilst many eco-nappy brands claim to use plant-based materials within the layers of their products, every layer of Ecoriginals Eco-Friendly Nappies is made from plants, including the top sheet, back sheet, and core. When combined with paper compostable packaging, the nappies are world-leading at over 90% biodegradability! There is also no need to worry about unwanted leaks with the added protection of 100% cotton leg cuffs and a 3D leak guard to prevent leakage and side spill.

Kind To The Planet

Many eco-nappy brands claim to use plant-based materials but are not specific about which layers of the nappy actually contain these eco-friendly alternatives. This can mean that they can be just 40%-60% biodegradable as despite some of the nappy being made from plants, there is still a significant amount of plastic used in each product. Once the nappy has been wrapped up inside itself (as we all do with used nappies!) you might as well be placing it inside a plastic zip-lock bag as the natural biodegrading process is restricted from taking place.

Readily Available

Whilst it may appear that there is extra effort involved in sourcing and purchasing eco nappies, it’s actually a lot easier than you might think! Quality products like Ecoriginal’s Eco-Friendly Nappies are stocked around Australia in many local supermarkets and pharmacies and are also readily available online.

Ecoriginals are committed to customer satisfaction with options to subscribe and save, allowing you to customise the type and frequency of your nappy delivery with ease, and edit, pause, or cancel at any time. If all that wasn’t enough, they also offer free shipping and a 100% money-back guarantee so you can try the power of eco nappies for yourself. Once you do, we doubt you’ll ever want to go back!

  • These look great


  • I wish these had been an option when my kids were small.


  • Has anyone found them to be less absorbent?

    • Yep! And not as great fitting, leading to leaks… :(


  • I’m keen to give these a try for my girls. Would love a sample.


  • A pity they go only up to size 13-18 Kg, otherwise I would have loved to try it for my youngest !


  • I only ever used cloth nappies for my boys but I kept a packet of disposables nappies for my husband to use when I was out shopping or at appointments. No matter how many times he tried using the cloth nappies there was always spillage. I preferred cloth nappies and I’d probably still be using them now.


  • I live seeing companies becoming more sustainable! My only concern is how quickly they breakdown. A friend who used compostable nappies found they broke down as soon as they were soiled before they even came off the baby!
    I much prefer the idea of cloth nappies with PUL made from recycled plastic!

    • Oh man, that sounds rather disastrous !


  • We love these nappies! Not only are they good for the environment, but we have not had one leak since making the switch!


  • Our daughters are 16 and 17 and have Autism, our eldest is severe and non verbal and was in nappies until she was 8. We used washable nappies back in early 00’s to reduce our waste and the ones available today are so much better than ours were and it saves you sooooo much money and rubbish! Loved these for 17 years!!


  • I totally agree, it is time for me to switch.


  • I’m happy with my modern cloth nappies, much cheaper and better for the environment, but for those that use disposables it’s good there is this option.


  • Great to know


  • Very nice to know!


  • Fantastic offer! Thanks


  • Way to go ! I wish they had them in larger sizes, otherwise I certainly would want to try them !

    • They should develop something like this for period pads too !
