  1. I’m going to write about the walk, I promise. Which reminds me: it is a year since you tagged me for a meme, and I wrote the post, which must be languishing in my Drafts folder still… Another think for the to do list!

  2. Kay Wagland says:

    More confusion on nappies – washable nappies have been proven to have environmental benefits over disposables. Flawed as it is, the 2005 Environment Agency life cycle assessment on the different types still said that washing nappies at home resulted in less carbon emissions and dramatically less waste than using disposables. You may have fallen for the disposables manufacturers association selective publicity on the report. Women’s Environmental Network is looking for a clear message from the Agency to parents on what is best for the environment when using nappies (rather than a mix of complex data that can be manipulated).

    Thanks for the comment Kay. My memory was that the Environment Agency did their own publicity on this research, but maybe I’m mistaken.

    Always good to have clear messages, although complex data doesn’t usually give simple answers in my experience.
