Reusable nappy rental
A baby that wears single-use nappies from birth until they are potty-trained produces 1.5 tons of waste. Greenzone Environmental Association accepted the challenge to reduce this form of waste across Hungary by informing families about zero waste alternatives to single-use nappies. They did this through presentations, brochures, and by sharing good practices.
The association started a reusable nappy rental system in 2019. Renting a package lets parents try out different types of reusable nappies before buying them. To support national businesses, the packages only contain nappies made by Hungarian WAHMs (Work At Home Mums).
During the workshops, other reusable products are also presented, such as washable wet wipes and reusable menstrual products.
