Ditch the disposables – Real Nappy Week is here!


Baby loading real nappies int toy washing machine (large version)To celebrate Real Nappy Week (16 – 22 May) we are holding a series of real nappy roadshows to raise awareness of how parents can save money and help the environment by swapping to machine washable nappies.

Modern reusable nappies are shaped, have biodegradable liners, use modern fasteners and are easy and simple to use.

Dorset mum, Clare Angus, has been using real nappies with her four month old daughter, Isabella, since she was a few days old. Clare said:

“Isabella is very happy and comfortable wearing real nappies. Plus we always have the option of switching to using a combination of washable and disposable nappies when needed – for example when going away on holiday.”

Did you know it is estimated that disposable nappies cost around £1,000 per child from baby to toddler? Using real nappies instead can help parents cut this cost by over half.

      Hi Georgia,

      You’ve missed Real Nappy Week this year – it was 16 to 22 April. We are not planning any real nappy roadshows at present as we are focussing on our new waste collection service. However, we’d love to give you some advice – one of our education officers would be happy to speak to you about it on the phone or in person. Please email enquiries@dorsetwastepartnership.gov.uk
