Cloth Nappy Library Ireland


Cloth Nappy Loans and Local Support



With our:

Postal loans


Communications tools



Cloth Nappy Library Ireland is a nationwide non-profit that provides cloth nappy loans and local support. We aim to help make cloth nappies mainstream by enabling parents to try them out and get support in what will suit them best, how to use them and where to get them.

Local libraries do a nappuccino where parents can see various cloth nappies, ask questions and borrow a kit to try at home. Our postal loans cater for newborns, right up to toddlerhood and beyond.

Disposable nappies take 200-500 years to decompose in landfills: using even just one cloth nappy a day reduces that number by almost 1,000. Five nappies a day 365 day a year for 2.5 years totals up to almost 4500 nappies.
