Hackney Real Nappy Network
We are a friendly informal network of parents and carers who use and promote real nappies. We run regular events and demos to help people to make a more informed nappy choice and to raise awareness about the free nappy voucher scheme. Would you like a demo at a local parenting class or an information stall at an event? Or if you are already using real nappies then contact us to volunteer and help spread the real nappy love!
Due to covid-19, our upcoming demos will now take place online via zoom. The link to each zoom demo can be found in the events page. Registration is now required in advance.
What Hackney Parents Say
Tunde, Seng & Jonatán
“We like using real nappies as we try to be conscious about the environment and we think Jonatán looks great in the different designs too! We have enough prefolds to last a few days and four outer wraps (that we rinse after every use) so we have a very cost efficient system.”
Iva & Oliver
“I can’t resist using reusable nappies because they are fun & colourful. Also, they help with potty training and they don’t sit in landfill for hundreds of years!”
Edouard & Nathan
“We’ve been using real nappies with Nathan since the day we brought him home from the hospital. I’d heard all about the financial and environmental benefits of using them already and the money-off voucher from the council really helped us to get started.”
Parents living in Hackney with a baby under 18 months can apply for a free real nappy voucher with the Real Nappies for London voucher scheme. You can claim and redeem this voucher in person at the Washable Nappy Company pop-up shop or apply online via Real Nappies for London.
