Nappy voucher

Why a nappy voucher?

Approximately 1 ton of nappy waste is generated from using disposable nappies until a child becomes dry. Disposal and incineration are costly, time-consuming and causes chemical residues that must be stored for a longer period.

For this reason, municipalities and the Waste Management Association are promoting the reduction of nappy waste. A promotion has been launched to make it easier for families to use sustainable nappy products.


What is a nappy voucher?

The purchase of cloth nappies is supported with a nappy voucher. The voucher is distributed to expectant parents almost nationwide in Austria. The exact voucher amount varies between 60-200€ and results from the subsidies of the municipality, the waste management association, the manufacturers and the selling store. The subsidized amount is done through the WIWA association.


Where can I get the nappy voucher?

In the remaining Austrian municipalities, the voucher can be picked up at the respective municipal office.


Germany

In parts of Germany, the purchase of cloth nappies is subsidized with the so-called "nappy subsidy". The municipality pays this individual amount upon presentation of the invoice. Further information can be found on www.deine-stoffwindel.com
