Today I have written to three of Leicester' s MPs regarding the Early Day Motion put forward by Austin Mitchell MP, regarding DEFRA's review of England's waste policy.
If the EDM is passed, it means that Real Nappies will be topic for debate in the Houses of Parliament. This would increase the publicity and support of the advantages of using cloth nappies over disposable nappies.
I really do believe that if cloth nappies were publicised more actively, people would see them more as the norm, and less as the alternative.
Can you actually believe that 4% of all waste is disposable nappies? That is a whopping THREE BILLION nappies, weighing in at 690,000 tonnes!
Surely we could ALL do a little more to help prevent this getting worse!
