Here at the Australian Nappy Association, we have a “thing” for reducing waste. We think it’s a really awesome thing to do!
So of course, we think that the Halve Waste initiative is absolutely fabulous!
Halve Waste was developed by Albury City Council, City of Wodonga and the Shires of Towong, Greater Hume, Corowa and Indigo.
The phenomenal goal of this initiative is to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by 50% by 2020. To do this, they have implemented a number of waste-reducing projects, including a new 3-bin system which helps residents to divide their waste appropriately between recycling, organics and garbage.
To further help young families reduce the rubbish going into their garbage bin, Halve Waste is spreading the good news about cloth nappies, with an array of educational resources and workshops.
A representative from Halve Waste told the Australian Nappy Association:
“Halve Waste are proud to support and promote reusable cloth nappies and wipes as a great way to not only reduce nappy waste to landfill but to save money. Our workshops aim to help take the mystery out of modern cloth nappies and help parents make the transition.”
The next workshop will be held in Wodonga on the 17th of July and is a fabulous opportunity to learn more about using cloth nappies.
