Mackenzie DistrictMore than 600,000kgs of disposable nappies and sanitary waste goes to the Mackenzie District landfill every year. That's a lot of space being wasted. There are some other things to think about too:
Getting to the bottom of the problem
For the sake of our landfill and the environment, we want to encourage all new parents to have a go at using cloth nappies.
Becoming a new parent can be stressful (and expensive),so the Council wanted to make getting started with cloth nappies as easy as possible. That's why we're providing cloth nappy starter packs for new parents for just $20. These packs would normally retail for around $100!
So What is in your pack?
Each cloth nappy starter pack contains 3 modern cloth nappies from different suppliers.
For just $20....you get around $100 worth of nappies.
The nappy pack also contains The Nappy Lady's helpful guide to modern cloth nappies, including information on how to wash them.
Each pack is suitable for boys or girls. Most of the nappies in the pack will even fit your baby from birth to potty.
