Save money and the environment by making the switch to cloth nappies.

About this event

Are you thinking about using Modern Cloth Nappies and don't know where to start? In this free workshop, Alice from Nappy Lane will share her extensive knowledge and experience with reusable cloth nappies.

We will talk about:

  • the different styles of cloth nappies available
  • what you need to get started
  • how to wash cloth nappies
  • troubleshooting leaks and issues
  • environmental and financial benefits
  • why cloth nappies are fun

You’ll have the chance to try a variety of different brands and styles of nappy on our demo dolls and have your questions answered.

This workshop is for new and expecting parents, grandparents and carers in the Waverley Council Area.

Hurry spots are limited!

Why use cloth nappies?

  • Reduce waste – Use 24 cloth nappies instead of 6000 disposable*
  • Save money – Spend ~$500 on average for cloth nappies vs ~$2500 on average on disposables
  • Conserve our resources – It takes twice the amount of water to produce one disposable than is used to wash one cloth nappy for a year
  • Keep it simple – Cloth Nappies are easier to use than ever before
  • Style it up – Cloth Nappies look adorable and feel lovely!
  • Buy local – Support Australian owned businesses

This event is being run by Waverley Council in partnership with Nappy Lane. Nappy Lane launched in 2014 to ensure that parents in the Illawarra had somewhere to go to get their cloth nappies, as well as receive some support along the way. Nappy Lane now delivers workshops for cloth nappies and reusable sanitary products across NSW to spread the word about the environmental and financial benefits of switching to reusable.

This project is a NSW Environment Protection Authority Waste Less, Recycle More initiative, funded from the waste levy.
