A woman who used sposies set up a company in Leicestershire that does this. People pay her to take away their sposies in an attempt to be a little 'greener' and they turn them into a number of other products. Great idea if people can afford to have their nappies taken away!

Makes me cringe to think that plastic products are made out of something people put next to their babies delicate skin!

Maybe if local councils done this for free, more people would become involved and they would certainly boost their recycling figures :wink:

I dont know. Our council offer bins for nappies only but not many people havethem. Maybe they will encourage this more? I wonder if we'll be in the catchment area for the trial, I hope so! Not that we use many sposies, but it would be interesting to be part of!

I honestly can't see that many people paying to have their nappies taken away.

When I read your reply first Shaunie I thought you said you cringed at the thought of using plastic that had been next to a bum, but then I wiped the sleepy dust away and realised what you actually said! Grim isn't it

In a way I think some may use it as another reason not to consider cloth which makes me sad, but if was rolled out over the country & hopefully others it could really do some good!

I did look into using something like this for the chilminded chilrens nappies but nothing is/was available in my area. At one point with at least 2 sometimes 3 a day in nappies (& the 2 my 2 wear at nigh :oops: ) the amount over the week really did build up! I'd b happy to pay for the service for my minding so long as its not stupid amounts!

I think this is interesting as it adds to the debate over environmental impact of disps vs cloth, but i imagine it would have to be on a large scale to make any significant impact. A good start tho'
