Switching to real nappies
We encourage the use of reusable nappies. Babies get through about 5000 disposable nappies in their first two and half years, compared with 25-30 reusable nappies.
We can offer shopping vouchers if you buy reusable nappies. We can provide half the amount of your spend, up to a maximum of £25. For example if you pay £40 for real nappies, we will provide £20 in shopping vouchers. We will need a copy of your receipt or invoice.
Alternatively, we can send an e-voucher for £25 to purchase real nappies online.
