Why we're offering this new scheme


Why we changed our old Real Nappies offer

Between 2015 and 2020, we offered residents either a free starter kit of six reusable nappies or up to £50 cashback against the cost of buying their own. We were overwhelmed by the success of this scheme - application numbers doubled each year! The success of the scheme led to some inefficiencies in running it.

Feedback from applicants of the previous scheme also showed that the nappies we provided weren't always right for every family and that people needed more support to ensure the nappies were used fully.

Having reviewed the scheme, Hertfordshire Waste Partnership agreed on a new way of encouraging the use of reusable nappies, which will represent better value for money for Hertfordshire residents whose council tax payments fund the scheme.

HERTS Reusable Nappies offers:

  • Access to a greater selection of nappies and accessories, as well as an expanding range of eco-living products, all in one place.
  • Much more customer support and advice, so parents and carers can find all the information they need to choose the right reusable nappies and get the best use out of them. This will include online events, Q&As and support groups.

Why we're promoting reusable nappies

Since Blue Planet II raised awareness of plastics in the ocean back in 2018, there has been a huge rise in the use of reusable nappies. Parents looking for a way to reduce their impact on the planet are turning to reusable nappies as an eco-friendly and cost effective option. The nappy pins and terry towels of old are a far cry from the reusable nappies of today. With fitted designs, a huge array of different materials and styles to suit all routines and needs, reusable nappies are a fun, simple and responsible way to care for your child and their future. Reusables are becoming the main choice of nappy for more and more families.

 

 
What else you can do to help


Send us your photos

If reusables are already your nappy of choice, help change nappies across Herts by sharing this web page with three friends and sending us photos of your baby in reusable nappies. You'll be added to our ‘hall of fame’ gallery and used for publicising our scheme.

Hall of fame gallery

We’re looking for lifestyle photos of your baby in a reusable nappy, doing your normal everyday activities. Indoors or outdoors, with you, with family, pets, friends and toys. Just be sure to add the photo permissions form (Word, 59kb) with your email. Send your photos to wasteaware@hertfordshire.gov.uk.

Nappy amnesty

If you have any unwanted reusable nappies or accessories that are clean and dry, we would love to accept any donations to allow others to start their reusable nappy journey. Your donated nappies may be used at family centres, antenatal appointments or events to raise awareness of reusable nappies amongst new and expectant parents, or donated to families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to access them. Due to coronavirus restrictions, we aren’t accepting any donations in person right now, so please either store your nappies until the New Year or post them to:
