A £30 refund is on offer for parents in Essex who buy cloth nappies or sign up to a nappy laundering service.

Cloth nappies are a real alternative to using disposables, and there are a number of reasons to make the switch.

From just £80, you can buy all the cloth nappies a baby will ever need. Even taking into account laundering costs, using cloth nappies can be £1,000 cheaper compared to disposables. Cloth nappies can also be up to 40% better for the environment than disposables.

Using cloth nappies for all or some of the time can make a real difference to the 300,000 disposable nappies buried daily in Essex landfill sites.

Many modern cloth nappies are shaped just like disposables and come in attractive prints with easy to use Velcro fastenings.

The £30 refund is available for parents who live in the Essex County Council area and have either bought cloth nappies or signed up to a nappy laundering service in the last 12 months.
