By using just one reusable nappy a day instead of a disposable nappy, you will save 912 disposable nappies from incineration.
Using reusable nappies full time can save you on average £195 per year. Further savings can be made if the same nappies are used on a second child.
Take part with Reusable Nappy Week events and activities.
Find out if you are eligible to apply for a reusable nappy subsidy.

#PassTheNappy is about linking our global community together in support of Reusable Nappy Week to show the benefits reusable nappies have on our environment. That they can be passed on and reused on subsequent children, whether that be siblings or other families, time and time again, saving millions of single-use nappies from incineration and landfill.
#PassTheNappy video campaign is inspired by the #DontRushChallenge as a way of bringing people together.
How to Get Involved with #PassTheNappy
To get involved with the video campaign, create a very short video (less than 5 seconds long) on your mobile of you or someone else passing on a reusable nappy. Be as creative as you like, or a simple pass from your left to right. Any reusable nappy of choice. It is important that the video has good light and is of high quality. Any background.
When sharing your video on social media – Instagram, Facebook & Twitter – please use #PassTheNappy #ReusableNappyWeek #EarthDay and tag:
@ReusableNappyWk – Twitter
Videos can also be sent in by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your video will then be selected to contribute to an overall collaborative #PassTheNappy video that will be shared as a Reusable Nappy Week round-up, showing the fantastic community engagement during the week.

Reusable Nappy Schemes
Reusable nappy incentive schemes such as Real Nappies for London has shown to be a cost-effective mechanism with a real impact on public waste disposal budgets: councils save eleven times as much on waste disposal as they spend administering the scheme. Real Nappies for London currently works with the London boroughs of Bexley, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Lambeth and Waltham Forest to offer parents with a baby under 18 months, or parent-to-be living in one of the voucher participating London boroughs, with a reusable nappy voucher worth up to £54.15 to get started with reusable nappies. We also work with other London boroughs to help promote their reusable nappy scheme. Find out more:
