Donating (or selling) your pre-loved real nappies has become a whole lot easier thanks to the OLIO app.

  1. Download the app (available for iphone and android) and sign up for free.
  2. Add your real nappies and accessories.
  3. Arrange a door step exchange or use a drop box (only for smaller items).

We encourage all parents to reuse or pass on their nappies once they’re finished with. You will be helping more parents save money and reduce their impact of disposable nappy waste.

Pre-loved real nappies, maternity and childrens clothes can usually be donated and picked up for free at many borough-led events such as – the Hackney Real Nappy Network Give and Take, Islington Real Nappy Swap and Bexley Real Nappy Swap. Visit the events diary for upcoming events.

Cloth Nappy Libraries and Suppliers are also a useful source for donating pre-loved real nappies and for receiving advice:
