Are you happy with your nappies?

Banbridge District Council is doing its bit to promote reusable nappies.

With an approximate 1,354 children in nappies in the Banbridge area, a huge 1,164 tonnes of nappies are going to landfill each year: That’s 850kg per baby per year!

This amount of unrecyclable waste has numerous costs; both financial and environmental.

The Cloth Nappy Library NI will be holding ‘nappuccinos’ - informal get-togethers where mums and dads can come along to hear about the library service. where they can rent out 25 nappies and all required accessories for two weeks at a cost of £20, or a newborn kit for six weeks at a cost of £50, or where they can find out more information about cloth nappies in general and see them in real life.

The Banbridge Nappucino takes place at the Streat Café, The Outlet from 10-12 on Saturday, September 21.

The Cloth Nappy Library’s, Jenny Finney, said, “We’ve moved so far from the old, dated traditional view of cloth nappies to one which is now smart, comfy, easy on the eye and – above all else – great for the environment.”
