Why use modern cloth nappies?
Modern cloth nappies are nothing like the old ‘pin’ cloth nappies your grandparents might have used. They are easy to use, easy to care for, can save you thousands of dollars and are good for the environment.  Over the 2½ years a baby is typically in nappies, the savings from using modern cloth nappies could be as much as $6,000!  Even if you don’t use cloth nappies all of the time, you will still save a lot of money and make a big difference in caring for Ruapehu’s environment.

The following is a real quote from a mum who works at Council and who made the switch to cloth nappies:

“Not a problem, I think it’s a fab idea. I wish I had used them for my oldest boy – and you can thank my mum when I said I was coming home with the kids, she flatly said you are not using disposables and polluting our beautiful farm!

So I just had to get over the mental hurdle that I made myself about cleaning nappies and investigate options. And cleaning them is a doodle. Takes me five minutes at night, hang them out in the morning, get them back in each evening when I get home from work, stuff em and away you go!!”

What’s in a “Starter Pack”
  • Three modern cloth nappies from three different suppliers. Suitable for both boys and girls. All starter pack nappies will fit your baby from birth to potty.
  • The “nappy lady’s” guide to modern cloth nappies.
  • Useful information from the nappy suppliers.
  • Discount vouchers for other baby products.


Getting Started
You can buy a modern cloth nappy starter pack worth $100 for only $20 from your local Council office

Note: As stocks are limited and we want to ensure all Ruapehu parents and caregivers who want to try out cloth nappies, they are sold on the following basis:
  • To purchase a “starter pack” you must be either the baby’s parent or primary caregiver.
  • Only one “starter pack” per household per child.
  • You must be a resident or ratepayer of the Ruapehu District. To prove ratepayer or residency status, please bring confirmation of your address details, eg, a power bill or bank statement, etc, with you to your Council office when buying your “starter pack”.

Oamaru

More than 600,000kgs of disposable nappies and sanitary waste goes to the Oamaru 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.
