2 billion nappies are sent to landfill each year in Australia
If you are a parent, carer or soon-to-be parent, we'd like to understand how you decide which nappy to use for your little ones.
Maribyrnong is one of 12 Melbourne councils supporting a joint study about reusable nappies to help parents care for their baby as well as the environment.
We want to hear your views on nappies – whether you're a parent-to-be; you’ve only used disposable nappies; tried reusable nappies and decided they aren’t for you; or you’re a reusable nappy loyalist or cloth nappy convert!
Your input will be part of a wider study looking at best practice reusable nappy programs to assist and support families and reduce household waste that ends up in landfill.
With your help, we can gain valuable insights into how Council can better support residents to make environmentally-friendly choices.
