Havering Real Nappy Scheme
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.
For more information you can log onto the Real Nappies For London or Go Real National Nappy Campaign websites.

Real nappies can save you money in the long term and help benefit the environment too.
