Nappy voucher

Why nappy voucher?

Around 1 ton of trash is produced when using disposable nappies until a baby is dry. The dispose and combustion is expensive, laborious and still include toxic residues that need to be stored in the long term.

Therefore, it is in both the local communities’ and the waste management association’s interest to reduce nappy trash drastically. They started to encourage and support young families to use more sustainable nappy products. 


What is the nappy voucher?

The purchase of cloth nappies is supported in the form of a nappy voucher handed out to becoming parents almost all over Austria. The exact amount varies between 50€ - 250€ and comprises the community’s grants, the waste management association, the manufacturers, and the vending shop. The funded amount can be redeemed either in full for a basic set or partly for additions. The WIWA association ultimately deducts it from your purchase. (Hyperlink:
