As Real Nappy Week begins, we find out if going reusable could save you money and help the environment
Could reusables suit your baby?
Go Real, the non-profit organisation that encourages mums to use reusable nappies, launches this year’s Real Nappy Week with the news that half of potential parents want to “go real”.
But how many actually take the plunge and try reusable nappies?
“We know that at the very least 35,000 parents are currently using Real Nappies,” explained Jon Rolls from Go Real. “If each one of them let just one other parent know about how much money Real Nappies can save parents and more importantly how easy they are to use we would be looking at a significant rise in participation.”
