London - Vouchers for Real Nappy London-users

There is now amazing choice in washable nappies. Boiling terries and pins are a thing of the past and real nappies now come in a wide range of easy to wash soft and natural fabrics with popper and Velcro fastenings and breathable waterproof wraps in funky designs.

This London-wide incentive scheme helps you in choosing and trying cloth nappies.

Parents and parents-to-be can receive:

  • an information pack;
  • invitations to informal sessions and events; and
  • a valuable voucher to be exchanged for 'real' (washable) nappies and accessories at listed retailers, or for a trial period with a nappy laundry service.
    There is also a helpline, activities and support for parents in Real Nappies for London boroughs.

The Scheme was launched on 29 June by Women's Environmental Network matron and presenter of BBC2's 'No Waste Like Home', Penney Poyzer along with London parents and their babies, midwives and councillors. See Real people for pictures and write up.

For more info on Women's Environmental Network's response to the recently publicised 2005 Environment Agency (EA) report on nappies visit WEN's website. A new EA report is due to be published in October 2007.

The value of the vouchers differ from councils to councils; around £25 to £54. Londoners from these boroughs can apply here to get the voucher:
