What is the Cloth Nappy Incentive Scheme?
The Cloth Nappy Incentive Scheme is a pilot project to encourage the use of reusable nappies among families who may not otherwise have considered trying them!
A limited number of families will be provided with a voucher number to be used to buy a cloth nappy starter kit worth €100. The voucher can be used to purchase the Dublin Cloth Nappy Starter Kit provided by each supplier in the scheme or payment towards your own choice of nappies.
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 and Dublin City Council and managed by VOICE.
Who is eligible?
To be eligible for the scheme you must:
- Be a permanent resident of Fingal County Council or Dublin City 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
How do I apply?Applying is simple! Just fill out the application form on https://www.voiceireland.org/cloth-nappy-incentive-scheme and they will email you with your voucher number. Go to the website of your chosen retailer, select the Dublin Cloth Nappy Starter Kit* and input your voucher number at the checkout. The retailer will then post the Cloth Nappy Starter Kit to you!
NOTE: DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A VALID VOUCHER. PLEASE COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FORM ABOVE BEFORE PURCHASING.
What happens after I receive my nappy starter kit?
As part of the pilot programme participants are required to take part in follow-up surveys and interviews, this is to look at the impact of the scheme! There will be a survey when you first receive the nappies, an interview in February 2023 and a final survey in September 2023.
