Real Nappy Week 2008
The Nappy Network Media Release
The 21 – 28 April 2008 is International Real Nappy Week. Real Nappy
Week is about giving parents and caregivers fair and accurate
information about the nappy options available to them; giving
families options and support to try the modern options in cloth
nappies, for a more sustainable future.
In New Zealand, Real Nappy Week is co-ordinated by The Nappy Network:
a community of parents who are using modern cloth nappies and sharing
their experiences and expertise. To celebrate Real Nappy Week
volunteers are hosting events in their homes and communities to share
their experience and passion with other parents.
Aucklanders are starting the ball rolling with a Real Nappy Expo on
Saturday 19th April (the Saturday preceding Real Nappy Week). Local
retailers will be exhibiting local and international nappy products
in a range of styles. Local hirekits will also be on display, and
volunteers will demonstrate types of modern cloth nappies and host a
sewing tutorial for those who wish to try their hand at a little DIY.

particular the forum pages as these have details of activities as
they are planned. For more information on International Real Nappy
