This week is Real Nappy Week! Now in its 20th year, Real Nappy Week is a great time to spread the word about all the benefits of using real (cloth) nappies instead of disposables.

For example, did you know…
- real nappies can save families an average of £500 compared to using disposables
- the average child goes through 4000 nappies and these can take up to 500 years to degrade in landfill
- in the UK we send 3 billion nappies to landfill each year costing tax payers £32million
- Real nappies are made of fabrics such as cotton, bamboo, microfiber and hemp to be as kind as possible to your baby’s skin. They are also fashionable and come in a range of styles, designs, sizes, and colours so they can be as individual as a child is

Herts County Council offer a £50 cash back reward to anyone that uses real nappies or they can give you a FREE starter kit worth over £100!
