The council is offering free cloth nappy loan kits to parents, so they can ‘try before they buy’. The aim is to reduce the thousands of tonnes of nappies that are binned, costing the council around £1m a year to dispose of.

If you live in Oxfordshire and would like to give real nappies a try, you can borrow a trial kit with no obligation to buy.

Each kit contains a good range of styles and brands of nappies, with all the necessary accessories. They are held by local nappy suppliers and community groups, who will explain how the nappies work before you get started.
