Camden

The London Borough of Camden works with Real Nappies for London to promote reusable nappies as an alternative to single-use nappies.

If you are a parent with a baby under 18 months, or a parent-to-be, living in Camden you are eligible to apply for a free £54.15 voucher to buy reusable nappies or contribute to a paid-for washable nappy laundry service. The incentive is to help you save money and reduce the amount of nappy waste being thrown away in the borough.

Why Switch to Reusable Nappies

In the first 2.5 years of a baby’s life, they will have needed at least 4,000 nappy changes. If of the single-use kind, they will all be sent for incineration.

Parents switch to reusable nappies for three main reasons:

Better for Baby

Breathable soft natural fabrics, which are comfortable and gentle on your baby’s skin.

Reduce Waste

By using just one reusable nappy a day instead of a disposable nappy, you will save 912 disposable nappies from incineration.

Save Money

In the long term, parents can make savings of around £500. More if the nappies are used on a second child.

Reusable nappies come in three main types: All-in-One, Shaped and Flat. Modern designs make using, washing and drying easy.

Free Reusable Nappy Voucher

Apply for a FREE reusable nappy voucher worth £54.15

If you are a parent living in Camden with a baby under 18 months, or parent-to-be, you are eligible to apply for a free voucher worth £54.15 to help with the initial cost of buying reusable nappies or for a paid-for washable nappy laundry service. Find out more on our apply page.

They offer advice and support you to use the carriers comfortably and safely. At each session experienced babywearers attend to help ensure you and your little one are comfy and safe.
