Plastic Free July is a brilliant time to reduce single-use plastic waste in your life and encourage others to do the same! Here are 4 ways to become part of the plastic-free movement—starting with cloth nappies.
1. Start small
When introducing cloth nappies to your household, it’s ok to start small. Even switching out one disposable nappy for cloth each day could divert 820 nappies from landfill.
2. Give your friends $10
Encourage your friends to try cloth nappies. Not only will the planet be better off, you can earn referral credit too.
3. Encourage your daycare to get on board
Child care educators may need support to get the hang of cloth nappies. Show them how you use nappies in person or print out our free fit guide to boost confidence.
4.Talk to your council about rebates
Forward-thinking councils across Australia offer cloth nappy workshops to reduce household waste and some offer financial incentives for families who choose cloth.
