This year Real Nappy Week will run from 15th-21st April and has the theme of ‘Real Nappies… Real Change!” to encourage parents to help spread the word about just how fab cloth nappies are.
Go Real, the nationwide nappy forum that Natural Nursery is a member of says:
“Really Changing Lives
Think – Baby and Parental Benefits. Comfortable, dry, cushioned bottoms make a happy baby. Early potty training and overall cost savings make a happy parent! And don’t they look great too!?
Really Changing Landfill
Think – Environmental benefits and reducing the amount of waste going into Landfill – Think ‘Waste Minimisation’ not just recycling.
Really Changing Futures
Think – Changing a habit of a generation and start the evolution. By raising awareness of Real Nappies amongst future generations of parents – through information, fashion and fun – we might make evolution happen! Spread the word at grass roots level; encourage friends, family and the younger generation to come along to the ‘Great Cloth Diaper Change’ to join in the fun and break a crazy Guinness World Record”
Unfortunately, there won’t be a Great Cloth Diaper Change location in Exeter (there will be one in Plymouth though, contact Gina firstname.lastname@example.org) but there is still loads to do in Exeter.
