Use cloth nappies for your baby

Whakaiti iho i te para i ngā kura

Disposable nappies do not break down in landfill. You can reduce your daily waste by using cloth nappies instead. If washed and dried correctly, cloth nappies can also save you money.

Waste Free Parenting workshops

There are Waste Free Parenting workshops where you can get practical advice such as:

  • which nappies are suitable for your baby
  • how to wash cloth nappies
  • how to reduce waste in your household.

The workshops are two and a half hours long and registration costs $25 for an individual or couple. We run some workshops in conjunction with other events, so costs may vary.

Attendees receive a free cloth nappy pack worth $90 - one per family.

For more information including dates, locations and bookings, visit the Waste Free with Kate.


Cloth nappy trial

We also offer a free eight week cloth nappy trial for early childcare centres, along with advice on other ways to reduce your centre's waste.
