Real Nappy Week 2017
Real Nappy Week kicks off next week with lots of activities and competitions to celebrate. Real Nappy Week is the annual celebration of washable nappies organised by Go Real – a social enterprise promoting washable nappies. This year’s theme is One World, One Change and we have some great stuff in store for you!
West London Waste Real Nappy Week Competition
We are running a three-week competition (18 April – 7 May) to promote washable nappies. Washable nappies are kind to your pocket, easy to use, great for the environment and they’re stylish too. Once you’ve experienced what it’s really like to use washable nappies on your little one, we think you’ll be as excited as we are about them and their benefit to the environment!
Did you know we have six free washable nappy packs to lend to west London parents? Help us spread the word by joining our competition! The winner will receive a £60 nappy voucher and an amazing accessory kit filled with everything you need to get started.
To enter simply take a photo of your disposable nappies (unused please) and post to Facebook or Twitter with the caption “Ready to Try”. Use #TheBottomLine and remember to tag @WestLondonWaste. If you have any friends who might be interested, tag them too.
If you’re not on social media, or prefer, you can email your photo directly to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alternatively, any residents signing up to borrow one of our nappy packs during the competition (18 April – 7 May) will be automatically entered to win.
Please note the competition is only open to west London residents residing in one of the following boroughs: Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow and Richmond Upon Thames.
Nappy + Love Food Hate Waste Stand at Kilburn Library
During Real Nappy Week, our Waste Minimisation Team will be at Kilburn Library on 20th April from 11:00-1:00PM. We’ll be on hand to answer any questions you may have about washable nappies. We’ll also have our washable nappy pack available for you to have a look at.
Our team has loads of tips and tools to help reduce household food waste too. We have a variety of delicious recipes for commonly leftover foods and a couple of other items we can give you to help. Come stop by and say hello!
