Green Skills Murdoch office launched cloth nappy workshops in January 2017 with a Perth local council and a grant from the Waste Authority.
Every day, thousands of nappies arrive at the recycling facilities around Perth after being placed into the incorrect kerbside bin.
Inspired to tackle the contamination of the materials recovery facility, we created a “Nappies for Newborns and Beyond” workshop, for delivery at local libraries, new mothers groups, antenatal classes and early childhood centres.
Our cloth nappy display has been fantastic for introducing new parents to modern cloth nappies in the flesh (not just on the internet). Parents tell us that the different brands, sizes and fabrics can be confusing when you are just starting out and google ‘cloth nappies’.
Questions from parents often include: “will my newborn really fit into this nappy?”, “How do I use cloth at night?”, and “do you have reusable swim nappies?”. So far, there has always been a young family already using cloth to rave about their experience first-hand!
