Plant-Based, Biodegradable And Saving The Planet
With a name like ECO BOOM, you’d hope these bamboo baby nappies are good for the environment. At the very least, choosing sustainable products has never been more important if we are to protect the world for future generations.
Not surprisingly, most disposable baby diapers are huge contributors to landfills. Most are made mostly of plastic, and we all know how long this terrible, non-renewable material will be around — at least for hundreds of years, if not longer.
Eco Boom is just one of the many brands changing the game when it comes to planet-hugging baby products. So what makes them so great? And should you buy them for your baby?
Here’s everything you need to know about Eco Boom bamboo diapers!
What Are Eco Boom Diapers Made Of?
Eco Boom diapers have 100% bamboo fiber topsheet and backsheet that are completely biodegradable. The super absorbent core consists of FSC certified chlorine-free wood pulp and traditional SAP. SAP is, essentially, what makes the diaper absorbent. It’s always made of plastic, unfortunately, but scientists are working on a biodegradable alternative.
It’s just as important to know what ingredients diapers are free from. We want the diaper to be as natural as possible, with no harmful toxins or chemicals. So what should we try to avoid?

Where Eco Boom Diapers Are Made?
Eco Boom diapers are made in China and available in the UK, US and Australia.
Are Eco Boom Diapers Biodegradable?
Most of the ingredients in Eco Boom diapers are biodegradable, although we didn’t give a percentage. All eco-friendly diapers have a little plastic in them. You’ll find hyperabsorbent polymers in all nappies because they absorb water. This will always be made of plastic, but hopefully there will be some environmentally friendly alternatives in the future.
How Well Do Eco Boom Diapers Work?
Eco-friendly doesn’t mean compromising on effectiveness.
Bamboo is the perfect material for baby diapers: it’s soft, strong and absorbent. As a result, Eco Boom diapers can easily suck moisture away and keep your baby dry. They have a super absorbent core, natural aloe oil to keep baby skin and the diaper itself soft, and triple elastic fasteners to hold the diaper firmly in place. There is also a humidity indicator to let you know when your baby needs a replacement.
I’m pretty impressed with Eco Boom diapers. You can’t say fairer than plant-based, chemical-free, and biodegradable. They tick all the boxes when it comes to the most eco-friendly disposable diapers, although they’re a little more expensive than some other environmentally-friendly brands.
Choosing plant-based rather than plastic means fewer non-renewable resources used. Add biodegradable to the list and many of your used baby diapers won’t be clogging up landfill sites.
ECO BOOM is just one of the many companies putting the planet – and your baby’s skin – first. And future generations will be grateful that they are…
