Use cloth nappies for your baby

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

Our Waste Free Parenting programme works with 'The Nappy Lady' Kate Meads to help support and advise parents on their options to reduce waste at home.

The programme includes workshops for parents, parents-to-be and caregivers with information on cloth nappies.

We also support early childcare education services in making the switch from disposables with our eight-week cloth nappy trial.

For more information, see Waste minimisation programmes.
