Gloucestershire County Council offers £30 cash to residents of the county with a child under 2 years, towards trying washable nappies.
Out and about at Hucclecote Library this morning for bounce and rhyme, just checking over a loan kit ready for it to be collected. There's a lot of different nappies to try out, and it's totally free to borrow for a month! Drop us a message if you'd like to borrow one.
At Longlevens library this morning for bounce & rhyme, so far I've talked night nappies and newborn options, pop along if you have any questions, I'll be here until 11.15 today!
A visit to The Keepers - Wotton Area Community Hub is always a treat!

One more thought for #PlasticFreeJuly ... Here at the GRNP, we know that small changes can have a huge impact. So don't beat yourself up if you can't manage to use cloth full-time... how about starting with one a day? That's 365 a year... a big difference to your bins! Or claim your voucher pack of 5 nappies and if you just used those 5 on alternate days, washed and dried in between, that'd be a whopping 912 nappies saved!
It's Plastic Free July, you may have seen some of the posts from our lovely colleagues at Gloucestershire County Council about ways to reduce your plastic use. Our fave is obviously using cloth nappies, wipes and wet bags instead of single-ue plastic disposable nappies, wipes and nappy sacks! Did you know each baby will go through over 5000 nappies by the time they potty train? That could be over 15,000 pieces of plastic ( assuming only one wipe per change which as you know is wildly optimistic!) Or 20 cloth nappies, 30-40 cloth wipes and a wet bag that can be washed and reused for years, for multiple children.
Someone else asked me the same question this week!
