Choose real nappies!
Bedford Borough Council’s real nappy cash back scheme has a
limited number of subsidies and is inviting parents and guardians
who have not used real nappies to give them a try!
If you are a parent or guardian living in Bedford Borough you
may be entitled to £25 cash back from the Council when you spend
£50 or more on washable nappies or laundry services.
Councillor Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for the Environment,
said: “Each baby uses up to 5,000 disposable nappies by the time
they are potty trained. That‘s approximately one tonne of nappies
thrown away every year, most of which end up in landfill. In
a household with a baby, up to 50% of their household waste could
be disposable nappies!
“The real nappy cash back scheme offers £25 cash back to help
parents and guardians try out real nappies and see how easy they
are to use and how much kinder they are to the environment.”
