Cloth nappy and re-usable sanitary product rebate

3.75 million disposable nappies are used each day in Australia and New Zealand. That is a lot of nappies in landfill!

Disposable nappies take up to 150 years to break down in landfill. The manufacturing of disposables uses finite natural resources and produce emissions that contribute to climate change.

Cloth nappies and reusable sanitary products are environmentally friendly alternatives; washed in full loads and dried on the line can help to minimise water and energy cost. Although reusables have a high upfront cost, they can save money over the long term.
