Since becoming a Mum, I have been so conscious of all the extra waste that having a baby generates. Whether that be from nappies, baby wipes or food packing, it’s quite astounding how someone so small can still have such a big impact on household waste. I recycle as much as I can and always try to shop the most sustainable products, but I’m not perfect. I know that the most convenient options are often the least eco-friendly; baby wipes being one of them.

That’s why I am proud to be supporting Huggies in their ‘Tiniest Footprint’ mission, which aims to eradicate plastic from their entire baby wipe range within 5 years, or sooner. They want to provide the gentlest skincare for babies whilst leaving the smallest environmental impact. At present, their wipes already contain up to 50% less plastic than other leading brands so they’re already well on their way to their plastic-free goal. I was amazed to learn that by using Huggies wipes, you can reduce plastic usage by the equivalent of 63 plastic bottles a year! That is pretty amazing and it’s small changes like this that can add up to a big difference.
Show your support and you could win a one-month supply of Huggies wipes (12 packs). All you need to do is post a photo of your baby’s feet on Instagram with the hashtag #HuggiesTiniestFootprint and my handle @thetravelista in the caption. Here’s my entry below.
