Elka Whalan launches Little Takas in Sydney today. She was joined by Sylvia Tulloch, chairman of EcoQuest Limited and Senator Simon Birmingham, Shadow Parlimentary Secretary for the Environment.

Elka says, “In preparing for my daughter Nevada’s arrival, I was alarmed to read that regular disposable nappies can take more than 100 years to decompose. And with newborns going through 6 to 8 nappies a day, that’s one billion nappies, enough to fill more than 2,000 Olympic sized swimming pools, ending up in land fill each year in Australia.

“Initially I looked into cloth nappies as a green alternative but when you consider the energy and water required to wash the nappies, the environmental benefits seemed minimal. Then I discovered Little Takas. The all natural fibres are so soft against Nevada’s skin, are super absorbent and highly breathable. They are good for Nevada and good for the environment.”
