Real Nappy Week fun and games - We will be having mini giveaways on the lead up to Real Nappy Week via the Real Nappy Week Facebook page. There will be a chance to win Real Nappy goodies both for you and your Local Nappy Library and the chance to win a stash of nappies for a friend to help them make the change to cloth!

To keep up to date with everything to do with Real Nappy Week make sure you have signed up to our newsletter and keep an eye on our Social Media.

Why Change?

By using Cloth Nappies, families could save anywhere from £100 - £1000 and the more children they have in cloth, the bigger the saving!

And don’t forget the cost to our environment. By choosing Cloth over Single Use Nappies, families could make up to a 40% carbon saving.

Currently UK families send 355,000 tons of single use nappies to landfill each year, costing Local Authorities (and tax payers) £32 million a year. This has to change!


 What are we changing?

Changing Habits – as humans we have become accustomed to the buy it, use it, throw it lifestyle. We need to change this. To buy it, use it, use it again, pass it on. Cloth nappies are the perfect example of this habit change that is needed.

Changing Lives – comfortable, dry, cushioned bottoms make a happy baby. Overall cost savings make happy parents. Reducing landfill and carbon saving make happier futures for everyone. What’s not to love?

Changing Futures - Changing a habit of a generation and start the evolution. By raising awareness of Real Nappies amongst future generations of parents - through information, fashion and fun - we can make evolution happen! Spread the word at grass roots level; encourage friends, family and the younger generation to go along to your local Nappy Library or Council’s Nappuccino / Nappy Natter Event!
