Green Skills’ Perth office celebrates Plastic Free July with a “Nappies for Newborns and Beyond” workshop for the City of Cockburn’s youngest residents.
The Success Library booked Green Skills’ Nappy Workshop for their busy story-time session, just in time for Plastic Free July. With over 70 babies plus parents, carers and siblings at each ‘Pram Jam’ session, Facilitator Aline Brion introduced modern cloth nappies in the flesh (not just on the internet) and demonstrated how to use them. Safety pins and soaking have been updated with modern snaps and modern washing machines!
While the Success Library families knew which bin their disposable nappies belong in (not the recycling bin!), they were unsure about the rest – how many nappies a baby needs? how long a nappy takes to break down? how to use and wash reusable nappies?
As a special incentive, anyone who wasn’t already using cloth, who wanted to try for Plastic Free July, could claim a free modern cloth nappy. What a great way to try something new!
