Strathbogie Shire Council - Avenel Free Cloth Nappy Workshop

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Every baby will go through at least 6,500 nappy changes, enough disposable waste to fill 19 wheelie bins. Buying disposable nappies until a child is toilet trained will cost parents up to $3,000 whereas a new set of modern cloth nappies will cost around $800.

If cloth nappies are used on just 25 babies from birth to toilet training, this will save 171,000 disposable nappies entering landfill, the equivalent of 475 wheelie bins full of waste and will prevent 147.12 tonnes of CO2 emissions

The purpose of the cloth nappy workshops is to get parents familiar with modern cloth nappies and to give them the knowledge needed to choose and use reusable baby nappies successfully.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the different types and styles of which can be applied to any brand of modern cloth nappies on the Australian market
  • Know the correct process for laundering modern cloth nappies at home and
  • Be able to troubleshoot problems such as leaks and correct fit.
