Mums Go Crazy For Cloth Nappies
Cloth Nappy Week Press Release 2014
Mums Go Crazy For Cloth Nappies
$30,000.00 worth of prizes makes cloth nappy week fever a very real condition amongst New Zealand parents. Peaking between 23rd and 30th March this year parents are advised to seek help at their nearest cloth nappy week event. This year The Nappy Lady has over 450 cloth nappies to give away to kiwi parents which means many parents will receive their very own cure to this pandemic.
Every year The Nappy Lady and a couple of thousand mums, dads and grandparents, all over New Zealand come together to promote the modern versions of cloth nappies. This year will be the 8th year Cloth nappy Week has be recognized here in New Zealand.
With record numbers attending last year’s events the Cloth nappy team are bracing themselves as 6 more events are added to the frantic dash around the nation. A grand total of 31 events now make up the calendar for cloth Nappy week covering the length and breadth of NZ.
‘Cloth Nappy Week is all about getting out into local communities and dispelling the myths about the Old School, Pink Striped nappies,’ Explains Nappy Lady, Kate Meads.
Many people believe cloth nappies will cost a lot to launder, be time consuming to wash and use lots of chemicals.
‘Nowadays it is just the opposite.’ say Meads. ‘With modern technology we now have super water and energy efficient washing machines that do all of your household laundry at the touch of a button. Pins are a thing of the past, and chemical use is at a minimum with products becoming more eco friendly yet super efficient.’
Events running in the main centre’s of Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin will be hosted by The Nappy Lady. With no less than $3000 worth of prizes to give away at each of the main events the Cloth Nappy week team expect numbers to be the biggest ever seen at a cloth nappy event.
If parents can’t make it to a coffee group, The Cloth Nappy Week Website (www.clothnappyweek.co.nz) will be the place to be, featuring an online treasure hunt with big prizes up for grabs.
Some of the amazing prizes we have up for grabs are: A Bosch Front Loader Washing Machine, a Years Supply of Earthwise Products, 4 x $1000 Silver Cross buggy’s from Baby on the Move, and loads more including hundreds of Modern cloth nappies.
Cloth Nappy Week is all about promoting sustainable choices, meeting other people and making a difference together. The Cloth Nappy Week team look forward to meeting lots of local mums and dads and if you are new to town, this is a great opportunity to meet some local mums too.
