EMR donates £4000 to Jersey company seeking to boost reusable nappy use

EMR Jersey has donated £4000 to a local company which is providing parents on the island with affordable reusable nappies.


Carry in Cloth, based in St Brelade, offers parents a service where they can hire reusable nappies. Since being formed in 2019, the company has helped an average of 35 families per year, saving tens of thousands of nappies from going to landfill or incineration.


The funding, awarded from EMR Jersey’s Community Fund, will be used to update all of Carry in Cloth’s kits, which are loaned to families, and create 100 free nappy kits for new parents, helping the company to support more parents.


EMR Jersey's Community Fund was launched in 2021 and seeks to support community groups that help local people and improve the nature and biodiversity of local areas.


Kerri Thomas, depot manager of EMR Jersey, commented: ‘At EMR, sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, so Carry in Cloth’s project was a perfect fit for us. It truly is a remarkable mission which helps families save money and the environment.


‘We strive to support the community in which we operate and are delighted to be able to support Carry in Cloth. Everybody at EMR, would like to wish the organisation all the best on its mission!’


Kayleigh Dunning, Carry in Cloth founder, added: ‘Receiving this funding is fantastic. Our free nappy kits have already been really popular and now I can offer them to even more people interested in trying reusable nappies.


‘There have been quite a few changes in the reusable nappy world over the past couple of years and now we will be able to update the nappies available in the hire kits as well as provide long term hire kits for those who would like to try reusable nappies but cannot afford the initial outlay.’
