Over 8 million disposable nappies are thrown away every day in Britain. The majority go into household rubbish bins and end up in local landfill sites. Disposable nappies create environmental concerns and financial costs for a local community. Real Nappy Week is an annual event first introduced by the Women’s Environmental Network and the Real Nappy Association to promote and encourage the use of useable nappies and nappy washing services.
