and their real-nappy project 'Green Nappies' have expanded
their services with new partner organizations: Lifestyles
in Worcester, Ecotots in the Malverns, the Gloucestershire
Real Nappy Campaign (GRNC) and Widemarsh Workshops in
Hereford and, in partnership with WorkAssist, created
two new jobs for people with learning disabilities due
to a new laundry washing contract with Kids in Clover.
with the new partners, will give away a further 700 free
real nappy trials to families throughout the three counties
during the next nine months. EnviroAbility is the only
organization within the three counties that has received
funding through WRAP (the Waste and Resources Action Programme),
to fund free cotton nappy trials. Britain throws away
nearly 8 million nappies a day. That's about 3 billion
nappies or 400,000 tonnes of nappies a year. Council taxpayers
and local authorities foot the bill for this.
parents don't realize just how much waste is created by
using disposable nappies on their babies. Parents need
to know that real nappies provide a real alternative.
A parent could use around 5,000 disposable nappies on
their baby or they could use just 20 real nappies. Real
Nappy Week, which runs from June 20-26 2005, is co-ordinated
by Women's Environmental Network (WEN) working with the
Real Nappy Campaign and WRAP. The Week aims to engage
parents with a schedule of national, regional and local
activities and enable them to make an informed choice
on the Environment Agency report, suggesting disposables
and real nappies had similar environmental impact, Elizabeth
Hartigan of WEN said, "Despite this confusing report,
the benefits of cloth nappies remain clear. Parents can
save money, save waste and reduce harm to the environment.
The only way parents can reduce their environmental impact
when using disposable nappies is to use fewer nappies
and that's not a good idea. Using real nappies puts parents
in control. All you need is a sensible washing routine
to really make a difference.
