Reusable nappies


Reusable nappies have transformed from the old-fashioned folded cloth nappies.

Modern reusable nappies are easy to use and readily available in a wide range of designs. Plus incorporating them into your routine can reduce waste going to landfill and save you money.

Even using one reusable nappy per day will mean saving 365 nappies from landfill in one year for one baby.

You don’t have to go it alone.

Free workshops

The Nappy Project is running free workshops to help parents and carers get information and support and try them out. 

The workshops will cover:

  • The different types of reusable nappies and how to choose one
  • How to get the right fit, and how to adjust resizable nappies through the different stages of your baby's growth
  • How to store and wash dirty nappies
  • The cost savings of reusable nappies
  • The health and waste benefits
  • Hands-on activities to try reusable nappies.

Everyone who attends will receive a free reusable nappy pack worth $125 to take home. Terms and conditions apply, see the registration page.

If you couldn't make one of the workshops in Nillumbik in 2023, check The Nappy Project for other options.

About The Nappy Project


Nillumbik has joined The Nappy Project - an initiative of 14 councils across Victoria to help support residents to use reusable nappies rather than disposables.

This project is supported by the Circular Economy Councils Fund. The Fund is delivered by Sustainability Victoria under the Victorian Government’s circular economy policy, Recycling Victoria: a new economy.
