Tomorrow marks the start of Real Nappy 2018 Week and as a way of doing my bit to raise awareness I thought I would tell you all a bit about Real Nappy Week.
Real Nappy Week occurs every year in April. This year it is running from Monday 23rd April until Sunday 29th April (although retailers may extend offers past these dates). It is a chance to raise awareness and also grab some deals from retailers at discounted prices or on promotions! Either way delving into the world of real nappies is not only beneficial on your pocket in the longterm but also on the environment.
For my household we have saved on disposable nappies, I am using cloth nappies on Cassius that I used on Aoife! Did you know that it takes as long as 500 years for a disposable nappy to decompose… that means that every single disposable nappy ever used is still in landfill! That is a pretty terrifying thought! Quite often I met with remarks of how gross cloth nappies are but tbh the idea of all those disposables still about is even more unappealing to me than having to chuck a dirty nappy in my washing machine!
Are any of you on the lookout for some RNW bargains? Are any of you considering making the switch? Let me know in the comments! I would love to hear your thoughts!
