Havering Real Nappy Scheme
Nappy pack applications
Due to the outbreak of Covid 19, the delivery of nappy packs will be delayed until the lifting of the current Government lockdown.
You may still apply for a nappy pack and your application will be processed once normal services resume.
Real nappies are made out of natural or synthetic materials and contain less chemicals than disposable nappies.
When using real nappies you can reduce your babies exposure to chemicals by using an eco-detergent, avoiding PVC-wraps, using organic cotton, hemp or bamboo products and avoid sanitiser. Tea tree oil is a good natural agent which you can use to soak in if you decide to do so.
Chemicals and gels used in disposable nappies are not subject to UK government controls or testing.
Many families are suffering financial hardship and the Real Nappies for London blog gives you some helpful tips on how you can spend less money on disposable nappies and help reduce waste.
Real nappies can save you money in the long term and help benefit the environment too.
