Haringey

The London Borough of Haringey 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 Haringey 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, which is not great for our environment. It also costs the local authority to dispose of this waste. 

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

Using reusable nappies full time over 2.5 years can save you on average £488. Further savings can be made if the same nappies are used on a second child.
