Derbyshire County Council is celebrating its 2000th real nappy cashback claimant.
Hannah Elliott is the 2000th parent to claim the £25 cashback incentive under the scheme. New parents can claim £25 cashback from Derbyshire County Council when they spend more than £50 on real nappies.
The cashback scheme was set up in 2005 to encourage parents to switch to real nappies. In Derbyshire, 100,000 nappies are thrown away every day. That’s 10,000 tonnes a year, which costs Derbyshire council tax payers £1million each year in landfill costs on nappies alone.
