Use reuseable nappies

2 Comments

By the time a baby is potty trained they could have worn 4000 – 6000 nappies. Using real, washable nappies rather than disposables can save hundreds of pounds and reduce the amount of rubbish going into your refuse bin.

8 million disposable nappies are thrown away every day in the UK, on top of this the Real Nappy Association has calculated that savings from using Real Nappies for a first child alone can amount to £600

As a Lewisham resident you are entitled to ….
 
  • a £25 voucher (valid for 6 months) to be exchanged for real nappies and accessories at listed retailers
  • a real nappies information pack
  • invitations to informal sessions and events

To qualify for these benefits you need to sign up to Real Nappies for London by clicking here or email elizabeth.sowden@lewisham.gov.uk  for more information
