Reusable nappies

Nappies

We process around 84 tonnes of soiled disposable nappies every week, and some of this still goes to landfill. Reusable 'real' nappies are a non-wasteful alternative.

Further information

Why choose reusable nappies?

  • Easy to use and clean
  • Can be used again if you have another baby
  • Can save you money
  • You can line-dry rather than tumble dry them
  • There are lots of materials and styles to choose from
  • You can help reduce waste

You can download a copy of our frequently asked questions at the bottom of the page, which explain more about using real nappies.
