The main aim of the project is to raise awareness about the alternatives to disposables, so that parents feel able to make an informed choice.
Free trial kits
For parents who are interested in using real nappies but aren't sure which type to buy, we offer free trial kits containing a range of different nappy brands and styles. The kits are available for one month and give parents the chance to try a selection of nappies in the comfort of their own home before making any decisions. A DRNP advisor will go through how to use, wash and care for the nappies and will be on hand to answer any queries throughout the trial.
The kits are updated on a regular basis to ensure the newest nappies on the market are included.
In 2014/15, 80% of parents who borrowed a trial kit went on to use real nappies, saving 116 tonnes of disposable nappy waste going to landfill or energy recovery.
