What is the Cloth Nappy Incentive Scheme

The Cloth Nappy Incentive Scheme is a pilot project to support the use of reusable nappies among families who could not otherwise have considered trying them owing to the upfront costs in buying the nappies! A limited number of families will be provided with a voucher number to be used to buy a cloth nappy starter kit worth €100 from one of our partner retailers, Summer Sweets Baby and Nappy Rebels. The voucher can be used to purchase the Cloth Nappy Starter Kit provided by each supplier. 

This pilot scheme will run for a limited time and only until the limited vouchers have been distributed. Participation in the pilot will be subject to follow up interviews on your experiences using the nappies.

The pilot is funded by the Environmental Protection Agency, Fingal County Council, Dublin City Council, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and Limerick City and County Council and managed by VOICE.

Who is eligible

To be eligible for the scheme you must:

  • Be a permanent resident of Fingal County Council, Dublin City Council, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council or Limerick City and County Council
  • Be pregnant or have a child under the age of 12 months living with you for whom the purchased reusable nappies will be used
