Real Nappy Week begins in Redbridge
Raising children is an expensive process, so why not save money and the environment by using modern, cloth real nappies.
Real Nappy Week, which began on Monday, aims to encourage new and prospective parents and guardians to find out how using real nappies can boost their bank balance as well as the environment.
Almost 59,000 disposable nappies are sent to landfill in Redbridge every day.
Each one takes up to 500 years to break down and often contain lots of chemicals.
During the week residents will have the chance to attend the first birthday of Redbridge’s Nappy Scheme and bag themselves a bargain while the young ones are entertained.

The event will takes place from noon-3pm on Saturday at Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, Ilford.
Activities include face painting, balloon entertainer, crafts and a nappy raffle.
