Moltex's Eco Nappies do not need to be added to landfill sites. The inner contents of the nappy have proven to breakdown to make excellent compost within 8-10 weeks in a wormery (for further details see ‘Composting of Eco Nappies’ at www.ecobaby.ie). The minimum super-absorbent material used in the nappy gives excellent water retention properties to the compost which is especially relevant to our climate and water shortage issues. For more details see our FAQ page.

What is the absorbent material in the Moltex Eco Nappies?
Moltex Eco nappies contain a mix of wood pulp, polyacrylate and cellulose. Polyacrylate is a super absorbent polymer (SAP) which will soak up and hold large quantities of water.


Why do they include SAP?
SAP significantly improves the absorbency of the nappies. A nappy which does not contain SAP will not have the same ability to keep your baby dry. This means that either the baby is left with a wet bottom or more nappies will be required and subsequently disposed of.

Many tests have been conducted on the effects of SAP in sanitary products. Some of these have been funded from a government-led consortium, which established that sodium polyacrylate is non toxic.

Also the minimum super-absorbent material used in the nappy gives excellent water retention properties to the compost which is especially relevant to our climate and water shortage issues.


Is the wood pulp bleached?
A test was run by the manufacturer to create a nappy with 100% unbleached woodpulp but they were found to be non-absorbent. As a result the wood pulp in the Moltex Eco Nappy is 50% unbleached and 50% tcf (totally chlorine free) bleached.

The organic matters in the emissions (effluent) are low chlorinated and have a significantly lower environmental impact. Low chlorinated organic matters are also formed naturally and are easily biodegradable


Is the eco nappy biodegradable?
The outer protective layer of the Moltex Eco nappy is biodegradable, whilst the inner of the nappies are compostable and have been composted successfully for many years. Read one woman's composting story which was published in the IrishTimes Newspaper.

How quickly do they break down in a composter?
The speed at which the Moltex Eco Nappy will break down depends on the type and size of composter used. Nappies should be added at a rate that your particular compost bin can handle. The most efficient way to compost Moltex Eco Nappies is using earthworm composting often referred to as 'vermicomposting'. The nappy will not fully break down, leaving the velcro tabs and parts of the inner lining. Once the majority of the nappy has composted you can take the fragments out and put them in your regular waste bin. Think of the huge reduction in volume you send to landfill!!

Composting does take time and effort. To avoid having to remove the uncomposted segments of the nappy we recommend slitting the nappy and emptying the contents of the inner into the compost. Compost needs to be regularly turned. For further and more detailed information about composting and how to build your own wormery you can go to www.ecobaby.ie.
