FREE REAL NAPPIES FOR THE BOLTON AREA

Wigan and Lancashire councils both offeran incentive scheme for the purchase of real nappies.. why doesn't bolton.
Around 8 million disposable nappies are used every day in the UK! over 92\% of these are dumped in landfill sites, but these sites are filling up, once these sites are full the use of incinerators will increase and no-one wants to live near an incinerator!
Disposable nappies can take hundreds of years to fully break down. It's estimated that about one-third of all landfill trash is disposable nappies. Instructions say to flush solids from the nappy before tossing in the trash, but less than one half of one percent of all waste from single-use nappies goes into the sewage system. This means baby poop is getting into the soil and water around landfills, and eventually, to us. Which can cause serious environmental problems since rotting waste generates methane gas plus a toxic liquid called leachate. Normally raw sewage cannot be disposed of in this way, so just think how much worse the situation is made when nappies are thrown away with household rubbish! Apart from damage to the environment.
In the UK alone we get through 500,000 tonnes of disposable nappies every year! By choosing reusable nappies instead of disposables you will halve your weekly rubbish and your carbon footprint could be up to 40\% smaller.
For every 1 spent on disposable nappies, there is a cost to the taxpayer of 10p to dispose of them!

By choosing real nappies, you are helping to protect your baby's very delicate skin from harsh chemicals, plastics and adhesives that form the basis of disposables.
The Consumer Protection Agency has received reports of chemical burns, noxious chemical and insecticide odors, incidents of babies pulling disposables apart and putting pieces of plastic into their noses and mouth,babies choking on tab papers and linings, plastic melting onto the skin, and ink staining the skin.
