Waste Recycling – Nappies this time

Just finished knocking out a couple of manic notes on waste, just to see this blog on the cost & benefits of nappies from the ASI. Like with the Manchester Conjestion Charge, it illustrates how properly looking at an issue, can provide a different answer to simply justifying the popular view.

When my kiddlewinks were babies, we used disposables. Here time was a factor, as well as avoiding a stinking job. However, again like the conjestion charge and recycling, people’s time is not valued. How long before some bright spark suggests that the truely green way is to hand wash in cold water and carbolic soap, and then putting it through a mangle? Need a strong bleach though, as the environmentally-friendly sorts do not work.
