Cotton on... to real cotton nappies

On behalf of the Warwickshire Waste Partnership, County Council are running the real nappy campaign to promote and encourage parents to use cotton nappies, whilst providing on-going help and support. Visit to find out everything you can about the campaign.

  • The aim is to reduce the amount of nappy waste in the household waste stream
  • In 2013/2014, 8% of household waste was made up of nappies; this costs the tax payer to dispose of at incineration and has a negative impact on the environment
  • Washable nappies offer parents a real alternative to disposable nappies that will greatly reduce the amount of waste a household will throw away
  • It also means that nappies won’t be in your bin for up to two weeks
