FREE Reusable Nappy Workshop for Hawkesbury Residents

A kerbside bin audit was undertaken in the Hawkesbury in 2020. By weight, it was found that absorbent hygiene products including nappies made up 4.36% of the general waste bin- that’s almost 900 tonnes of disposable nappies in 1 year!

Each baby has around 6000 nappy changes. That’s either a lot of disposables stinking up your bin and sitting in landfill (taking up to 500 years to decompose) or 24 cloth nappies that you wash and reuse. Cloth nappies are better for the environment, save you money and are easier than ever to use.

Getting started using cloth nappies can be tricky and whilst only 10-15% of parents are using cloth nappies sometimes there’s no one to ask for help. Alice from Nappy Lane has been helping parents get their babies into cloth nappies for over 8 years.

In the workshops you’ll be able to:

  • Learn about the environmental and financial benefits of using reusable nappies
  • Learn about all the different styles of modern cloth nappies
  • Check out a range of cloth nappy brands in person and try them on our demo dolls
  • Ask ALL the questions on how it actually works with washing nappies (and dealing with poo)
  • Have a cup of tea with like-minded parents
  • Get some support if you are already using cloth nappies (bring them along!)


When: 10:00AM-11:30AM Friday 3 March 2023.

Where: Tebbutt room, Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street, Windsor.

FREE cloth nappy samples will be given out at the workshop to each attendee
