Cashback incentive aims to boost reusable nappy take-up
Daventry District Council (DDC) is offering mums and dads an incentive to try reusable nappies as Real Nappy Week gets underway.
The Council is offering £25 cashback to anyone who spends £75 or more on reusable cloth nappies. It is hoped the initiative will encourage families in the District to make the switch from disposables, saving them money, freeing up space in their general waste bin, and helping the environment. More »
Real Nappy Week is taking place this week from 22 to 27 April and is being supported by hundreds of organisations across the country including DDC. Real nappies are so-called because they are made from natural materials, usually cotton, and do not contain gels or chemicals. They come in a range of styles, are machine washable and can be used again and again.
It is estimated that using real nappies could save parents £500 per child compared to using disposables, as well as reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
Families who are unsure whether real nappies would be suitable for them can also try before they buy by borrowing a free nappy loan kit, available from Daventry Library.
DDC's incentive scheme runs until July this year – to find out more and how to claim your £25 cashback, please visit www.daventrydc.gov.uk/greenerliving, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01327 871100.

Past and present members of our armed forces are being invited to join a new Veterans' Breakfast club in Daventry.
The sessions will be held at the New Street Café (next to Tesco) on the fourth Wednesday of each month in order to give veterans as well as current service personnel an opportunity to socialise in a relaxed, safe environment. More »
The sessions will run from 9.30am to midday, starting on Wednesday 24 April, and will operate alongside a support group held by the Royal British Legion to offer advice to people currently serving in the armed forces, veterans and their families.
Daventry District Council is working in partnership with the Royal British Legion, Daventry District Welfare Foundation, and the New Street Café on the scheme.
Chris Ward, of the Daventry Branch of the Royal British Legion, said: "Adjusting to life after serving in the armed forces can be difficult. Many veterans are left feeling isolated, so the aim of the club is to return that sense of belonging and to provide a place for veterans and service personnel to relax and socialise with each other.
"The breakfast club will run alongside our monthly support group, so I look forward to welcoming local members of our armed forces community to the sessions."
Councillor Alan Hills, Portfolio Holder for Community, Culture and Leisure on Daventry District Council, said: "Daventry District Council is a proud partner of Armed Forces Covenant Northamptonshire, which provides information and advice on support services available within the county for the Armed Forces community and their families.
"As part of that we are always keen to find ways in which we can help support our local armed forces community, so we are very pleased to be working alongside the Royal British Legion, and The New Street Centre on this initiative."
More information on the support services offered by the Royal British Legion can be found at www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-support or by phoning their contact centre, which is open seven days a week from 8am to 8pm on 0808 802 8080.
