Real Nappy Week 2018

Every year in April, the reusable nappy industry celebrates Real Nappy Week. This year it takes place across the UK from Monday 23rd April to Sunday 29th April 2018. It’s all about raising awareness of the benefits reusable nappies has on:

  • Our environment – by using reusable nappies, parents will reduce 8 million single-use plastic nappies ending up in landfill and incineration a day in England.
  • Your pocket – save up to £1,000 by switching to reusable nappies.
  • Your baby – breathable soft natural fabrics, which are comfortable and gentle on your baby’s skin.

How you can get involved

Take a friend along to a local real nappy demo (nappuccino) or real nappy event; volunteer with a cloth nappy library or network; share stories and pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram of why you made the switch to reusable nappies. The more parents hear about modern reusable nappies, the more likely we’ll #MakeClothMainstream.

If you are a midwife, health professional or local authority please join the celebration by spreading the word of Real Nappy Week. Please contact us to find out how you can get involved.

Real Nappies for London will be relaunching its #SwitchForSix campaign. #SwitchForSix encourages parents to make a step to giving reusable nappies a go in their nappy routine for six weeks. Parents will learn what is needed to get started, how to use, wash and dry real nappies. We’re asking parents to register now to start at the same time as other parents on Monday 23rd April 2018.
