A real nappy roadshow rolled into Ely last week to encourage parents to use washable nappies and cut down on the amount of waste.
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Real Nappy Network (CPRNN) launched the campaign, which they took on the road in the county council's recycling bus.
Kits, containing information and a free nappy, were handed out as part of the initiative.
County council waste campaigns officer, Victor Perez, said: "We are delighted to support the real nappy network in spreading the word about cotton nappies.
"It is estimated that every child uses around 5,850 nappies in their lifetime, which is the same weight as a family car."
Helen Coupe, project manager for the nappy network, said: "Modern cotton nappies are nothing like the old terry nappies people may be used to."
