We really want to reach out and challenge parents to set aside pre-conceptions and at least consider cloth nappies...
(PRWEB UK) 2 April 2013
Clothopoly is played solely online – and instead of visiting swanky Mayfair or Park lane for a glass of pre dinner champagne, entrants will be visiting BumGenius or Tots Bots to collect letters which make a winning phrase. More than 50 Retailer and Manufacturers are supporting Clothopoly with prize donations which is a testament to the ‘can-do’ attitude within the industry.
Says Esma Levendoglu, Founder Member of RNWRO and Clean Green Nappy Machine:
“The whole idea behind Clothopoly is to engage with people that don’t already use cloth nappies. We want to show them that they are fun and easy to use. In terms of the actual game, we came up with the idea because we wanted something that was inclusive for everyone within the market professionally but more importantly was something that all parents and parents will know and can have some fun with!
We really want to reach out and challenge parents to set aside pre-conceptions and at least consider cloth nappies. So we hope that this competition will engage non-cloth nappy users and change their perceptions. We’ve already got 3,000 Likers on our Real Nappy Week Facebook Page in just under 3 weeks, so we hope that parents will continue to ‘share’ the good news! ”
The giveaway fund currently stands at just over £8,300. Continuing with the inclusiveness, the grand prize itself is almost £500 worth of nappies, accessories and a changing bag, along with 3 runners up prizes worth £100, plus a further 65 prizes, worth approx £75. And as if that isn’t enough, there will be retailer specific spot prizes to be allocated each day.
Says Vicky Scordellis, of Little Lambs:
“There’s a really good reason why the grand prize contains just £300 of nappies – and that’s because it really doesn’t cost that much to get going with cloth nappies. Both my children had reusable nappies and it cost me less than £200 so I’m genuinely speaking from experience. The grand prize will include a birth to potty set, cloth wipes and a wetbag. There’s nothing else their baby’s bottom needs....except a lovely changing bag for Mum!”
Running from 15 April – 24 April, Clothopoly is timed to encourage maximum exposure for Real Nappy Week 2013. For more information Clothopoly and the Real Nappy Week Retailer Organisation visit the website or facebook page.
