One of the most difficult eco-decisions I’ve had to make is whether to use cloth or disposable nappies. I chose disposables. Given that I’m a big campaigner on reducing waste, this might seem surprising. But my view was that the environmental differences between the two products were not so great – and disposables performed better. And over the last 12 years, since my youngest child was born, there have been a significant reduction in materials used in nappies – see Pampers Active Fit. Procter & Gamble, who make Pampers, asked me to write a leaflet on the issue, giving my views on this controversial issue. Click here for link to pdf of leaflet.
