South East Queensland (where I live) is in the middle of a drought were up to level 5 water restrictions and I was starting to feel a little guilty about the extra water I use to wash my cloth. I was doing a little research and came across this info which made me feel heaps better and is yet another reason to love cloth!!
Myth: Reusable nappies take a lot of water to wash and this is bad for the drought.
Reality: Disposable nappies are manufactured in Australia, in drought-affected areas - and disposable nappies have 2.3 times the water impact compared to washing cloth nappies. The water you see isn't the only water you use - think beyond your own backyard!
