Also known as Cloth Nappies, Real Nappies can be washed and reused.

They are easy to use and very similar to disposables, plus they come in exciting patterns, fabrics and colours

Why choose Real Nappies?

There are lots of benefits to using Real Nappies:

  • Kinder to your baby - no chemicals or oils, just the natural absorbency of the material
  • Money saving - saving up to £500 per child compared to constantly buying disposables
  • Good for the environment - a baby will go through about 5,000 nappies changes before they are potty trained. That's 5,000 less disposable nappies sent to landfill.

Reward for using Real Nappies

WasteAware would like to thank those Hertfordshire residents who avoid the mountain of waste created by disposable nappies. So, if you buy reusable nappies or have joined a nappy laundering scheme, you can claim up to £50 towards the cost.

Alternatively, if you’ve never used Real Nappies and would like to give them a go, we have a free starter kit available in partnership with Close and TotsBots. The kit, worth over £100, contains; five all-in-one cloth nappies, one night nappy and wrap, one booster and one roll of disposable liners.

To claim your real nappy reward or order a starter kit please download, print and complete the reward claim form and return along with the documents detailed on the form to:
