CANCELLED Modern Cloth Nappy Workshop – Town of Bassendean

May 5 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Sorry Folks – please note this event has been cancelled. 27/04/2022
Learn all you need to know to make the switch to cloth nappies!

Did you know:

Infants can go through up to 7,000 nappy changes before the transition from nappy to regular underwear, with newborns using up to 12 nappies a day. Approximately 3.75 million disposable nappies are used each day in Australia and New Zealand, adding plastics and waste to landfills. As nappies contain plastic, they can take up to 150 years to breakdown in landfill.

About this event

Kam Andrews will teach you all you need to know to start your cloth nappy journey. After the workshop you will be eligible to receive up to $100 refunded directly to you from the Town of Bassendean when you purchase cloth nappies or sign up to a cloth nappy hire program.

To be eligible for the rebate you will need to attend a Cloth Nappy Workshop. This ensures you have the information and support needed to successfully transition to using cloth nappies.
