Event promotes ‘real’ nappies

Have your say

Parents can find out more about the benefits of using real nappies by dropping into a library.

Derbyshire County Council has organised the Nappuccino event at Chesterfield Library tomorrow between 10.30am and noon.

The county council wants to reduce thousands of tonnes of nappy waste sent to landfill sites every year.

Parents attending the Chesterfield event can have a coffee and get advice about types of ‘real nappies’ available - and hire out one of the council’s nappy lending kits.

The kit includes different styles and brands of washable nappies which parents can try on their babies for a small charge of £5.

A £50 refundable deposit will also be needed in exchange for the kit which can be loaned for up to two weeks.
