What’s on in Camden

 

London Borough of Camden has joined the Real Nappies for London voucher scheme to help parents enjoy the benefits of trying real nappies while avoiding the initial expense of buying them.   If you live in Camden, you can now apply online to receive a free £54.15 voucher which can be used to buy real nappies from registered suppliers.

Even if you don’t switch over completely, using just one real nappy in place of a disposable every day could save a staggering 730 nappies from landfill – all from just one baby.
