Little Takas – the new kid on the bottom

Feel guilty every time you bin a disposable nappy? Then read on.

This is hardly the forum for the big nappy debate – the topic of cloth versus disposable is hotly argued in mothers’ groups everywhere and we’ll leave the nitty gritty for another time. Instead, let’s focus on the new kid on the block – or should I say bottom? Little Takas is a brand new, ninety per cent biodegradable nappy developed in Australia by Ecoquest.

Unlike other nappies, Little Takas can decompose in just one hundred days and has all the benefits of your standard disposable nappy, which is good news for parents and the environment.

Little Takas nappies meet Australian safety standards and are available in stores across Australia and online. Sized from newborn to toddlers, each pack costs $19.95.
