Cloth nappy information
Council runs frequent sessions to discuss the pros and cons, ins and outs of cloth nappies. The new styles of cloth nappies are a fabulous way to reduce family expenses and improve the environment. Just quietly, they're cute to boot.
If you would like to attend one of these sessions, give us a call on 9433 3316 or drop us an email, Environmental.Events@nillumbik.vic.gov.au for the next available date.
