Parents who buy reusable nappies for their babies are being encouraged to promote their benefits as part of Real Nappy Week.

In partnership with Go Real, Durham County Council is looking for people who use real nappies to share their experience and encourage others to make the change.

Those taking on the role of ‘Real Nappy Advisors’ would attend events to promote the benefits and answer questions from others who are thinking about ‘going real’.

This year’s Real Nappy Week takes place between Monday, 24 April and Sunday, 30 April with the theme ‘One World, One Change’ and aims to change the habit of a generation.

Each year in the UK, 355,000 tonnes of single use nappies are sent for disposal, costing taxpayers £32 million.

By making the switch to real nappies, families could save themselves between £100 and £1,000, while using cloth nappies could also result in a 40 per cent carbon saving for our environment.

Real nappies now come in a variety of materials, designs, colours and patterns, all of which are kind to skin.

To celebrate Real Nappy Week, Durham County Council is giving away two nappy starter packs worth £50. For details of how to enter visit www.facebook.com/recycleforcountydurham
