In 2009 Londoners sent a massive 200,000 tonnes of nappy waste to landfill and/or incineration costing a staggering £15 million. Surely it makes sense to encourage more parents to use washable nappies and thus reduce this huge disposal cost? London boroughs face tough spending choices. Think about how that £15 million spent on disposing of nappy waste could be put to better use.
Washable nappies are really easy to use these days and there are also nappy laundry services that deliver clean nappies to your door - or nursery - taking away the used nappies to be washed and worn again.
