All things reusable - Online

Reusable items beat compostable, biodegradable and recyclable in so many ways. 

Elana from Cloth Nappy Workshops Melbourne will show you how to ditch the disposable items that we commonly use around the home, which will not only reduce your household waste but will save you money.

Elana will take you through the reusable alternatives to :

  • disposable paper towel
  • wipes
  • nappies
  • menstrual products
  • make up wipes
  • shopping and produce bags
  • and more

 She will also share home set-up ideas to help make the switch to re-usables super easy.

Proudly brought to you as part of Nillumbik Shire Council’s annual Spring Outdoors program in conjunction with Manningham and Banyule councils.
