CWaC Council, full of crap as usual

Cheshire West and Chester Council promotes benefits of ‘real’ nappies.

This week, May 16-22, is Real Nappy Week, and in light of this, to give parents the opportunity to get on board with the scheme, Cheshire West and Chester Council is offering them one month free nappy laundry service worth £45 and a maximum of £25 cashback on reusable nappy purchases.

My comment: As Usual CWaC Council is behind the times.  "Town halls have spent £3million in the past five years trying to persuade parents to use washable nappies.

The taxpayers’ money was poured into ‘real nappy’ campaigns even though the notion that re-usable nappies are better for the environment was discredited years ago. Councils have continued to sink funds into nappy campaigns despite overwhelming evidence that they are pointless.

Cash has gone on employing ‘real nappy’ officers, press and broadcast advertising campaigns, and subsidising vans to pick up dirty nappies and deliver freshly washed ones back to mothers.

 Among the councils subsidising nappies, Southend in Essex, Pembrokeshire , Gloucestershire, Norfolk and Lancashire. One council, Stroud, ran a nappy campaign for 18 months up to April 2009, offering mothers £30 worth of washable nappies free of charge. Only one mother took up the offer."
