Gwynedd Council is backing the drive by Waste Awareness Wales (WAW) and Sustainable Wales to promote the use of reusable nappies, during real nappy week 11-18 March 2007.
Gwenllian Dafydd, Gwynedd Council’s Waste and Recycling Officer, said:
“This week is an opportunity to dispel some of the myths surrounding real nappies. Real Nappies have come a long way; they’re now fast becoming one of the most popular accessories for parents with cute and cool designs from cow prints to rainbow patterns, plus they are convenient to use and easy to wash.
“Using real nappies instead of disposable ones will not only reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill each year but it can also help parents save up to £500 and even more on a second baby. These are just two of the reasons why we want to encourage more parents from Gwynedd to use them.”
The real nappy campaign in Wales offers impartial information and advice about choosing and using real nappies via its advice line on 0845 4562477. Visit www.realnappies-wales.org.uk for more details and for information on other events taking place to celebrate Real Nappy Week.
