Welcome to a Cleaner, Greener Haringey with Real Nappies for London

At Real Nappies for London, we are passionately committed to creating a more sustainable and environmentally conscious Haringey. Our purpose is to inspire and actively encourage people to embrace reusable nappies as a smarter, healthier, and eco-friendly choice, leading the way towards a greener future for both the present and future generations to come.

Why Choose Reusable Nappies

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.

Free Reusable Nappy Voucher

Apply for a reusable nappy voucher worth £70

If you are an expectant parent, a parent or a foster carer living in Haringey with a baby under 18 months or under the age of 5 with a disability requiring nappies, you are eligible to apply for a £70 nappy voucher. Your voucher can assist with the upfront cost of buying reusable nappies or contribute to a paid-for washable nappy laundry service.
