What’s on in Hackney

 

London Borough of Hackney has joined the Real Nappies for London voucher scheme to offer parents an incentive to use real nappies.  Parents living in Hackney can claim a free £54.15 voucher towards the initial cost.  You can use the voucher to buy nappies from participating businesses across London, or to get started with the  Nappy Ever After laundry service.

Around 6% of waste in Hackney comes from disposable nappies. This is equivalent to the weight of nearly 456 double decker buses each year!  Reusable nappies can make an important contribution to waste reduction in the London Borough of Hackney.

All nappuccinos are at Hackney Central Library on the 4th or last Friday of the month during term time – 10.30 am to 12 noon.   You can apply for a voucher in person on the day, please make sure you bring along supporting documents.
