People across the country have been reporting that supermarket shelves are stripped bare of disposable nappies and feminine hygiene products as panic buying has set in for these necessary items.
As a result, many are turning to renewable nappies when their disposable nappies have run out. TotsBots, the reusable nappy company, have reported a 600% hike in sales in the past few days alone.
The same is happening for Bloom & Nora, an ethical reusable sanitary pad company, that’s also seeing a huge spike in sales at this time. Not only are they a sustainable alternative to disposable pads, but they contain no toxins, dioxins, carcinogens and can washed and reused again and again. Perfect for when supermarket shelves are bare.
TotsBots started selling their reusable nappies at 440 Boots stores nationwide in February. With the increase in panic buying due to Covid-19, parents are stocking up on reusable necessities instead of disposables. “It’s a smart choice,” says TotsBots co-founder Fiona Smyth, “disposable nappies and sanitary pads end up in landfill, cost more in the long-run, but at times like this it’s good to know you won’t be stuck if disposable items disappear from the shelves.”
Reusable nappies like TotsBots contain no nasty chemicals, are easy to wash and quick drying, and come in various styles and sizes for new-born babies to toddlers. There are nappies for daytime and more robust nappies for night-time as well as a range of accessories to makes sure babies bottoms stay covered if disposables run out. For parents self-isolating and keeping kids indoors, it’s a safe and reliable solution.
