Spring into Cloth with Toby Tiger!
This March, Toby Tiger is getting involved with SpringIntoCloth, an event designed to promote the use of cloth nappies and their positive environmental benefits. SpringIntoCloth brings together a fantastic range of cloth nappy-friendly businesses to make it easier for parents to switch to reusable nappies. So if you're looking to spring into cloth this season, Toby Tiger has you covered!
What is SpringIntoCloth?
SpringIntoCloth is an annual event that celebrates using reusable nappies and diapers. During March, eco-friendly families are encouraged to take part by taking a photo of every nappy change they make and creating a collage at the end of the month. Suggested images include a stack of nappies going to the nursery, a laundry pile, or hanging up the stash for the day. The event aims to show the volume of disposable nappies stopped from going to landfill each month.
Each week there will also be themed photo challenges with prizes from the nappy cloth industry. Every post that meets the requirements will count as an entry. Taking part in SpringIntoCloth2023 also has several benefits, from saving money to helping protect our planet by reducing waste. It's important to note that you don't have to switch entirely to cloth nappies or reusable diapers; even one per day can make a difference and help create a planet-friendly future for our eco family.
Why use Cloth Nappies?
Cloth nappies are a great way to be more planet-friendly and eco-conscious as a family. Reusable nappies are also a great way to save money in the long run compared to single-use disposables. This is because reusable diapers last much longer than disposables, are often made with better quality materials and can contain far fewer harsh chemicals which can damage a baby's skin. On top of that, using reusable diapers eliminates the need for disposables, which take up to 500 years to decompose, to be thrown away into landfills. It is estimated that if you used one cloth diaper per day until your baby was potty trained, you would save approximately 912 nappies from landfill.
Making eco-friendly changes doesn't have to be all or nothing - every little step helps make our planet a better place for our little people. So why not give cloth nappies a try? You don't have to commit to them full-time, but every cloth diaper or reusable wipe you use is helping to make a difference.
How can I take part in SpringIntoCloth?
SpringIntoCloth is a great way to show your commitment to cloth nappies and reduce the environmental impact of disposable nappies. All you need to do is take a picture of each nappy change in March and, at the end of the month, create a collage of all the images. Alternatively, you could take photos of your nappies going to the nursery, a laundry pile, or hanging up the stash for the day. The goal is to show the volume of disposable nappies stopped from going to landfill each month.
There are weekly themed photo challenges for those who want to get creative. Prizes will be awarded for the main challenge as well as for the weekly challenges. It's an excellent opportunity to show off your eco family's commitment to reusable nappies and diapers and be part of the planet-friendly cloth diaper movement!
Toby Tiger's Cloth-Friendly Clothing
At Toby Tiger, we make sure all our baby clothing is cloth bum friendly so that there is plenty of extra room in our baby grows, sleepsuits, baby bodys, yoga pants and dungarees. We also add popper fastenings to allow for easier nappy changes and comfy stretchy waistbands and cuffs to allow movement for little wrigglers! In addition, we will support SpringIntoCloth this March by donating giveaway prizes and sharing the posts on our social media throughout the month.
