I've been so curious about reusable nappies ever since I had the cross over period of both Caleb and Archie in nappies. It was only a short period, but boy, did we go through what felt like a gazillion nappies, and yes, I am prone to exaggeration, but seriously I feel this number was not far off :/
Throw in the horrendous fact that it would take up to 500 years for a disposable nappy to decompose, and it appears there will be a lasting mark left on this planet by my little family long after we are gone, and not the one I would have hoped for!
So with that not so lovely thought in mind, I was thrilled to hear about the company, gNappies. As always I continue to be drawn to companies set up by parents themselves, I find it so incredibly inspiring. Especially parents like, Kim and Jason, who's company, gNappies, tackles the problem of disposable nappies head on with their adorable, comfortable and reusable alternative, gPants.
The fit is snug and comfortable with Archie smiles as seal of approval ;)
Good for baby.
Good for the environment.
As if that wasn't enough, gNappies has just teamed up with Christy Turlington Burn' charity Every Mother Counts, a non-profit organisation dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, to create the adorable elephant design gPants, that Archie is pictured wearing.
In a country where the NHS exists, it's so easy to forget that there are woman around the world who still die during childbirth from minor complications. A sad, sad fact, especially as most of the deaths are preventable.
With every purchase of the limited edition gentle giant gPants, gNappies will give 50% of the net proceeds to Every Mother Counts. Such an amazing collaboration, that will really make a difference.

The limited edition gentle giants will be available to purchase on Wednesday 3rd June and will be found here.
Now can we please talk about how adorable my little sumo wrestler looks in his gPants??! Being more environmentally friendly and supporting a good cause never looked so good, ha!! Oh I sure do love that baby chub chub of his.
