“So many parents are aware of the environmental impact of disposable nappies and want to use reusable nappies, but simply don’t know where to start. The Nappies Bill would provide parents with the much-needed information and support to make using reusable nappies easy, accessible and affordable. It’s time to go back to how our parents and grandparents used to do things!”

Sandy Martin, Labour Shadow Minister for Waste & Recycling

“Reusable nappies are a great example of a sustainable alternative to our throwaway society and should be encouraged. Many councils offer incentives to encourage new parents to use the more sustainable, and often cheaper alternative. Labour will invest in local government re-use systems and encourage reuse schemes such as the real nappy incentive scheme.”

Adam Price, Leader of Plaid Cymru

“This initiative is a tremendous idea and mustn’t be overlooked. The UK throws away three billion nappies a year, this is a huge issue and contributes to our waste crisis. I welcome this nappy alternative and urge all parents to consider using reusable nappies. I believe they present a viable alternative to their throw away counterparts. I will continue to champion the vitally important work that reusable nappy companies do to aid parents and our environment.”
