Nappy campaign to discourage landfill waste

Nappy campaign to discourage landfill waste
The eco-benefits of choosing cotton nappies instead of disposable ones will be highlighted during a week-long campaign, it has emerged.

According to the St Albans & Harpenden Review, the national Real Nappy Campaign aims to encourage mums and dads to consider their carbon footprint and opt for nappies that have less of an impact on the environment.

St Albans district council is offering parents the chance to receive a £60 grant by making the switch from disposable to cotton nappies - which it claims could help cut carbon emissions and landfill use in the long-term, as well as saving money for the council.

"Disposing of single use nappies costs the council approximately £1.8 million a year and with landfill space rapidly running out, we need to divert as much waste as possible," said Louise Palmer, recycling officer at the group.

Part of the events included in Real Nappy Week - which will continue until April 27th - include a Nappycino evening where parents are encouraged to share advice with one another.

The Real Nappy campaign reports that household rubbish could be reduced by up to one-half by switching to cotton nappy alternatives.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18561077-ADNFCR
