Washable nappies could save Londoners millions and use less carbon, says the Community Recycling Network UK.
London households ‘waste’ around £20million a year throwing away tonnes of disposable nappies, according to research. Real Nappies for London (RNfL) thinks this is a waste of money when there is a zero waste alternative of washable nappies. Reusable nappies can also have a 40% less global warming impact than disposables if washed and dried in an eco-friendly way.
To draw attention to this issue during Climate Week toddlers will be strutting their stuff at a very special fashion show on 24 March, in Coram’s Fields.
Organiser Hilary Vick said: “It’s an opportunity for Londoners to show off their babies in their favourite real nappies and believe me, there are some unique examples out there.
Real nappy companies have risen to the challenge of meeting Londoners’ passions for individuality, glamour and style.”
Expectant parents or parents thinking of making the switch from disposables are welcome to line the catwalk and enjoy the show. For more information visit realnappiesforlondon.org.uk
