As many of you know, I (Alex) am mum of two wonderful, disabled, children. When it comes to parenting my two, I’m always on the look out for ways to practise sustainable parenting and ways of being a little bit kinder to the planet. Parenting, as we all know, is a transformative journey, and the choices we make can have a profound impact on our little one’s future and the world they will inherit.
Recently, I came across some new wipes that I want to share – like many other parents, wipes are undoubtedly the superheroes in my daily parenting escapades. Because, let’s face it, bums, hands, faces, and everything in between sometimes need a quick freshen up.
In 2023, over 600,000 mums welcomed new additions to their families, marking the beginning of a beautiful yet challenging adventure. Amidst the sleepless nights and joyous moments, the desire to live a more sustainable life often becomes a top priority for many parents. However, navigating the sea of options to match intent with action can be overwhelming.
Here’s where a fantastic collaboration opportunity comes into play, offering valuable insights for sustainable parenting. One noteworthy tip that stands out is the switch to biodegradable baby wipes. Enter Mum & You, a brand committed to revolutionizing the parenting landscape with their 100% Biodegradable Eco-Friendly Baby Wipes.
What sets these wipes apart is their dedication to caring for both your baby’s delicate skin and the environment. Crafted from sustainably sourced, naturally derived viscose – the most abundant and renewable wood fibre on Earth – these wipes are a gentle touch on your baby’s skin. With a composition of 99.4% water and hypoallergenic, skin-friendly ingredients, they cater to even the most sensitive skin types. And the best part? They are 100% plastic-free!
For parents like me, with young ones in nappies, wipes are an indispensable part of our parenting toolkit. While we try to use reusable wipes whenever possible, the convenience of disposables can’t be overlooked. We’ve been using Mum & You wipes when we’re out and about and I’m impressed. They’re wonderfully gentle on skin, and they do the job perfectly.
As we embark on this sustainable parenting journey together, let’s celebrate and support initiatives that align with our values. It’s not just about making choices for today but laying the foundation for a greener and more sustainable tomorrow.
