We met with Brenda Grech recently, here’s what she had to tell us about her brilliant Cloth Nappy Company
After using modern cloth nappies for my own baby daughter Esme and experiencing first hand the long list of benefits they offer, I was inspired to launch The Cloth Nappy Company, making reusable cloth nappies easily available and accessible within the Maltese market.
Modern cloth nappies come in lots of cool colours and designs, they help avoid nappy rash and work out cheaper than disposables. They are also very eco-friendly helping to reduce single-use plastic and some of the 450 billion disposable nappies going to landfills every year.
It is not often that an eco-friendly product is cheaper and better than the mass-market alternative. In the case of reusable cloth nappies this is! On average, a baby goes through eight nappies a day until they are potty trained. This amounts to €1,200 worth of disposable nappies. Cloth nappies cost around €635 in total including helpful accessories and washing costs. You’ll make a saving of over €500 when using cloth nappies, and that is just on the first child. Of course, you can reuse them for your next child!
We have also recently added a gifts section to our website. So if you are after an original present idea for a baby shower, baby arrival or baptism, at The Cloth Nappy Company we’ve got you covered.
At The Cloth Nappy Company we offer free monthly talks (follow our Facebook page to check out upcoming events!), free 1:1 personal consultations and also take part in a number of events around Malta including the Eco Market on the 12-13 October at the Granaries in Floriana as well as the Mother, Child & Baby Fair at The Phoenicia on the 26-27 October.
You only need one cloth nappy to get started!
