Cloth Nappy Initiative

If you are a resident or ratepayer in Ruapehu you can take advantage of Council's special introductory cloth nappy offer.

Cloth Nappy Starter Pack  - $100 of Nappies for ONLY $20!!!

Why use Modern Cloth Nappies?

Modern cloth nappies are nothing like the old ‘pin’ cloth nappies your grandparents might have used. They are:

  • Easy to use
  • Easy to care for
  • Can save you thousands of dollars
  • Are good for the environment

Over the 2½ years a baby is typically in nappies, the savings from using modern cloth nappies could be as much as $6,000!  Even if you don’t use cloth nappies all of the time, you will still save a lot of money and make a big difference in caring for Ruapehu’s environment.

What is in a Starter Pack

  • Three modern cloth nappies from three different suppliers
    • Suitable for both boys and girls.
    • All starter pack nappies will fit your baby from birth to potty
  • The “nappy lady’s” guide to modern cloth nappies
  • Useful information from the nappy suppliers
  • Discount vouchers for other baby products

Getting Started

You can buy a modern cloth nappy starter pack worth $100 for only $20 from your local Council office.

Note: As stocks are limited and we want to ensure all Ruapehu parents and caregivers who want to try out cloth nappies  have the opportunity so they are sold on the following basis:

  • To purchase a “starter pack” you must be either the baby’s parent or primary caregiver

  • Only one “starter pack” per household per child

  • You must be a resident or ratepayer of the Ruapehu District.  To prove ratepayer or residency status, please bring confirmation of your address details, eg, a power bill or bank statement, etc, with you to your Council office when buying your “starter pack”
