Choose real nappies!
Bedford Borough Council is supporting national Real Nappy Week
to encourage parents to switch from disposable nappies to Real
Real Nappy Week, which runs from 16th April to 20th April this
year, also sees the launch of the Council’s Real Nappies Cash Back
Scheme for 2012/13. If you are a parent living in Bedford Borough
you may be entitled to £25 cash back from the Council when you
spend £50 or more on washable nappies.
Councillor Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for the Environment,
said: “Each baby uses up to 5,000 disposable nappies by the time
they are potty trained. That‘s approximately one ton of nappies
thrown away into landfill every year. In a household with a baby,
up to 50% of their household waste could be disposable
