• Description

Independent test by the University of Tasmania show the difference in degredation between Weenees Disposable Pads and typical 'plastic' disposable nappies. Results under Tasmanian Summer conditions show that Weenees degrade in soil burial after 134 days, earth worm trials after 71-80 days and 111 days in septic tank trials. Where as the plastic components of typical disposable nappies (approx 30% by weight of the nappy) remained largely intact. The paper pulp portion of the typical nappies was restricted in degrading taking 148 days under soil burial, 140 days in earth worm trials & 143 days in septic tank conditions.
