Bexley

The London Borough of Bexley works with Real Nappies for London to promote reusable nappies as an alternative to single-use nappies. They currently offer residents a £50 voucher to get started using reusable nappies. The aim is to decrease the amount of nappy waste being disposed of in the borough.

Why Switch to Reusable Nappies

Over a 2.5 year period, a baby will have gone through approx 4,000 nappy changes. The majority of these nappies will be single-use and thrown away to be incinerated. 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.

What are reusable nappies and how to get started

 

What are reusable nappies?

Reusable nappies come in three main types: All-in-One, Shaped and Flat. Modern designs make using, washing and drying easy. Find out more about the different types of reusable nappies and what else you may need.

 

Ready to Make a Real Change?

Reusable nappies will save you waste, save you money, and are very easy to use. On our get started page, we offer tips and advice on what you need to get started, how to wash and dry reusable nappies, and where to you can buy them.

Free Real Nappy Voucher

Apply for a FREE real nappy voucher worth £50.00

If you are a parent living in Bexley with a baby under 18 months, or parent-to-be, you are eligible to apply for a free voucher worth £50 to help with the initial cost of buying reusable nappies or for a paid-for washable nappy laundry service. The voucher can be put towards a set of reusable nappies you have already researched and would like to try, or if you are unsure, we recommend spending your voucher on a trial kit containing the three main types of reusable nappies. Washable nappy laundry services are useful if you prefer not to wash reusable nappies at home.
