GoNap is the only environmentally conscious all-in-one nappy pack on the market. Everything from the packaging, to the wipes, to the actual nappy is eco-conscious – a MASSIVE consideration in today’s disposable society.
How is GoNap eco conscious?
Let’s start by saying GoNap is not your all day, every day nappy solution.
Butt (😄)…whether you use reusable nappies, conventional nappies, biodegradable nappies, a mix of reusable and disposable, elimination communication – whatever – there will come a time where your need for coverage doesn’t match what you have on hand, or your situation sees you needing the Conscious & Convenient option, sort of like grabbing a . Well hello GoNap!
Can I compost GoNap nappies?
Our nappies are 61% biodegradable and our wet wipes 100% biodegradable and we do recommend you home compost our wet wipes. Wee and poop are considered a biohazard so it’s unavoidable that all nappies are disposed of in general waste. The best way to dispose of a GoNap nappy is to wrap it in the GoNap Change Mat and place in general waste. It will breakdown in much less time than conventional nappies (approx. 6 years vs 600 years).
How do I best dispose of my GoNap?
Let’s break it down (pun intended).
The nappies and change mat – wrap nappy in the GoNap Change Mat and discard in general waste.
GoNap wipes – you can either home compost or dispose of them in general waste.
GoNap wipes packet – put with your soft plastics and take to a REDcycle drop off point. Find your nearest <here>
GoNap outer packet – dispose of it in a recycling bin or feel free to reuse as a gathering pouch, purse or waterproof packet for your phone.
So, tell me how GoNap nappies break down in land fill?
Each and every landfill site is different and there are many factors that determine how effectively GoNap nappies break down.
With the advancement in technology and science, landfill sites are consistently improving, and becoming much better at decomposing rubbish. The levels of oxygen present or not can vary as each site can be managed differently and rubbish can be circulated with machinery to ensure degradation is occurring. Some newer landfill sites promote biodegradation through the injection of water, oxygen and microbes. Commonly things like vermin and bacteria found at landfill sites help to break down GoNap nappies also. Biodegradation can happen without oxygen present in landfill sites, it just takes longer. The important thing to remember about GoNap nappies is…if you dispose of a product that has concentrated on an eco conscious deliverable and contains predominantly biodegradable materials, then it will break down much faster compared to that of a product that hasn’t. Conventional nappy vs biodegradable nappy.
