Kit & Kin protects the environment too. Conventional nappies are the third largest contributor to landfill, even though only 5% of the population use them! In the UK alone we use 8 million nappies every day, most of which will take up to 500 years to biodegrade. Almost every element of a Kit & Kin nappy – including its packaging – will biodegrade within 3 to 6 years.
At Kit & Kin we are committed to protecting your little ones now and in the future. That’s why we’ve teamed up with World Land Trust (WLT) to raise awareness of rainforest conservation and to help save and protect threatened habitat across the world.
The importance of the rainforest cannot be underestimated, a vital eco system that provides clean air and life saving medicines:
- 25% of all medications used worldwide originated from the rainforest
- Only 1% of the rainforest has been analysed for its medicinal benefits
- At the current rate of deforestation the rainforest will have been destroyed in only 40 to 50 years
Our commitment to the earth: For every 10 customers that buy a Kit & Kin nappy subscription, we will fund the purchase and protection of one acre of tropical rainforest though WLT. Together we can make a difference.
WLT works to protect some of the world’s most biodiverse and threatened habitats, acre by acre. To do this, WLT empowers local NGOs by providing finance and technical support to create and expand nature reserves, restore degraded habitats and ensure they are permanently protected. An essential part of WLT’s philosophy is always to work through local partners and acknowledge local expertise.
