Events Diary

Nappuccino’s are local real nappy information events run by real nappy advisors and are perfect opportunities to learn more about real nappies over a coffee. We recommend attending a nappuccino (also known as real nappy demo or nappy natter) as a way of seeing all the different types and styles before you buy. You will be able to ask all the questions that you may have about using, washing and drying and receive impartial advice about all real nappies from a real nappy advisor.

You can find out what’s happening near you using our events diary below.  Some events request that you book before attending.   All relevant contact information can be found on event listings.

Real Nappy Week 2018
Apr 23 @ 12:00 am – Apr 29 @ 12:00 pm

It’s Real Nappy Week 2018! Let’s #MakeClothMainstream #RNW2018

Every year in April, the reusable nappy industry celebrates Real Nappy Week. This year it will be happen across the UK from Monday 23rd April to Sunday 29th April 2018. It’s all about raising awareness of the benefits reusable nappies has on:

  • Our environment – by using reusable nappies, parents will reduce 8 million single-use plastic nappies ending up in landfill and incineration a day in England.
  • Your pocket – save up to £1,000 by switching to reusable nappies.
  • Your baby – breathable soft natural fabrics, which are comfortable and gentle on your baby’s skin.

Take a friend along to a local real nappy demo (nappuccino) or real nappy event; volunteer with a cloth nappy library or network; share stories and pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram of why you made the switch to reusable nappies. The more parents hear about modern reusable nappies, the more likely we’ll #MakeClothMainstream.

This Real Nappy Week we’ll be relaunching our #SwitchForSix campaign. #SwitchForSix encourages parents to make a step to giving reusable nappies a go in their nappy routine for six weeks. Parents will learn what is needed to get started, how to use, wash and dry real nappies. We’re asking parents to register now to start at the same time as other parents on Monday 23rd April 2018.

Real Nappies for London provides up-to-date impartial information about reusable nappies. Working alongside local authorites we help parents try reusable nappies by offering a financial incentive. Find out more about our London real nappy vouchers, and get started with using reusable nappies today!

In France, 2.5 billion of used diapers must be disposed ever year. An example of the cost to the environment and to families for having a child. Is the change from disposable back to reusable cloth diapers a return to the past or a wise choice in sustainable habits? What are other countries doing about this problem? Drawing on interviews with researchers, industrialists, consumers and feminists, the film seeks to answer questions about an emancipatory product of today’s consumer culture.
