GREEN EURO-MP BACKS 10TH REAL NAPPY WEEK

SAVE CASH AND CUT WASTE WITH WASHABLE NAPPIES, SAYS LUCAS

GREEN Party Euro-MP Caroline Lucas joins some 150 UK parliamentarians to
celebrate the 10th anniversary Real Nappy Week, which takes place next week
(April 24th – 30th).

Fashion shows, coffee mornings and hundreds of other events take place
across the UK and beyond.

Dr Lucas, Green Party Principal Speaker and MEP for South-East England,
said: “It’s great that more and more parents have chosen to use reusable
nappies since the first Real Nappy Week in 1996.

“There are now a wide range of reusable nappies available: they are easy and
clean to wash and use, snug fitting and self-fastening, available in
organic, waterproof, breathable materials – and cheaper than disposables
too.”

Biba Hartigan of Women’s Environmental Network (WEN), which is co-ordinating
the week, says, “There are nappies to suit all tastes: bright and funky
Day-Glo, leopard-skin and tie-dye prints, classic whites and pastels in
fluffy fleece, silky-soft bamboo or organic hemp fabrics, and a choice of
snug-fitted styles.”

Reusable nappies are cheaper than disposables, by at least £500 per baby,
healthier – they tend to be made from natural fibres rather than
super-absorbent chemicals, paper pulp and plastics - and they don’t
contribute to Britain’s growing waste crisis.

Three billion nappies a year - eight million a day - are thrown away in the
UK. 90% end up in landfill. Landfill space is running out and local
authorities face tough targets to reduce waste. Real nappies can be reused
time and time again so they don’t contribute to household waste.
 
Dr Lucas, who is a matron of WEN, added: “I am very glad to be supporting
this worthwhile campaign again. Real nappies save money and waste and it’s
great to see how many styles and options are now available to parents.”

A record 840-plus supporters have signed up to back Real Nappy Week
including over 90 percent of all UK local authorities. With some eight
million nappies thrown away every day in the UK, authorities actively
promote real nappy use to cut waste and as a cost-saving option for
families.

Real Nappy Week is co-ordinated by Women’s Environmental Network (WEN) and
sponsored by WRAP (the Waste & Resources Action Programme) through its Real
Nappy Campaign and supported by the Waste Aware Scotland campaign.

Details of all activities are posted on Women’s Environmental Network’s
website, www.wen.org.uk and the list is updated as new events are confirmed.

The Real Nappy Helpline – 0845 850 0606 – and Nappy Finder website -
www.realnappycampaign.com/nappyfinder - allow parents to find all their
local cloth nappy services, including suppliers, laundries and local
authority incentive schemes.
