No, Being Eco-Friendly Doesn’t Have To Mean Compromising Your Baby’s Skin

In today’s world, it can seem like everything is about choosing either this or that, not both. There’s even a whole sub-section of Tik Tok where people walk towards ‘this or that’, ‘x or y’ - you can barely scroll through your phone without seeing one. Morning person or evening person? Sweet or savoury? Glass half full, or glass half empty? These small choices are supposed to define us.

But when it comes to parenting, no-one wants to think that one thing comes at the expense of the other (though sometimes it does… like, picking between catching enough sleep to get up with the kids tomorrow or ooooone more episode of Bridgerton?) Even though sometimes we can accept we can’t have it all, we rarely want to admit that might be the case for our kids.

However, when it comes to your parenting perennial friend, baby wipes, Huggies believe that no parent should have to compromise. With an extensive range of wipes, created for babies' skin, you can pick what suits your family best, while knowing you’re doing the best you can for the environment too. Getting the best of both worlds.

Huggies Wipes already contain at least 70% skin-loving natural fibres from wood pulp and are aiming for even better. The Huggies Tiniest Footprint mission outlines their plans to make Huggies Baby Wipes as gentle on the planet as they are on your baby’s skin.

Just by switching to Huggies Baby Wipes, you can reduce your household plastic consumption by the equivalent of 63 plastic bottles a year (based on 500ml bottles). They’re working hard to make the packaging of wipes recyclable in the same way that plastic bags are now and within five years, they’ve pledged that their wipes will be plastic-free and recyclable in your home recycling bin.

But just because they can do one thing though, doesn’t mean any eyes have been taken off the ball… or baby’s bum, so to speak. Huggies Wipes are soft and gentle for babies' delicate skin – so much so, you can use them from day one. They’re also hypoallergenic and clinically tested. And with their unique technology, they offer the softest, kindest caring touch, even for the most sensitive skin.

Oh, and two more important things for those of us using the wipes – they still are excellent at cleaning up a mess - without effort, and are affordable too.

While the whole range is working hard to be as planet-friendly as possible, you can also go one step further by choosing the Huggies Pure Biodegradable Wipes. The plastic-free wipes are made with 100% naturally derived fibres which will biodegrade when disposed of correctly with household waste.

So, with all those things taken care of, there’s another thing you can cross off the list – guilt. And how often, when it comes to parenting, can you say that?
