There are a range of environmental, financial and health benefits associated with using reusable nappies.

  • On average, a child will use 6000 disposable nappies before they are toilet trained.
  • Babies require around 500 nappy changes just in their first 6 weeks of life.
  • 5.6 million disposable nappies* are used each day in Australia.
  • This adds up to more than 2 billion nappies per year. (*2009 IBIS World Australia report).


Halve Waste have a collection of reusable items including cloth nappies that are demonstrated at our cloth nappy workshops. We offer free information and guidance on how to choose and use cloth nappies and can also demonstrate directly to residents on request.
