In Britain, we throw away 9 million disposable nappies per day. They constitute over 4% of all household waste, and for every £1 spent on buying disposable nappies, Council Tax payers spend 10p disposing of them!
Manchester Real Nappy Network has just received £1000 in grants to help in its work. This money will pay for producing leaflets and posters which will be distributed throughout Greater Manchester.
Our network is a group of parents who are trying to promote the use of real nappies. We do a small amount of campaigning and have a comprehensive "nappy library" of all the different types of reusables available. If you would like to know more, or join us, please give us a ring.
