Its just not worth the expense to the council to provide it if people arent going to use them or dont continue using them - their landfill bill doesnt go down so why give it away in the first place
Such a shame but i dont find it surprising given that Burnley has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in the country and, whilst im not saying that all teen mums wont use cloth, those that i do know of (for example my 18yr old niece who is due in Jan) wont even consider it as its just not a priority in their minds and they dont know enough or arent willing to read about the benefits etc.
I was a teen mum (all for 3 weeks ) and i wanted to use cloth from when i was about 6 weeks pregnant (i know you werent generalising teen mums BTW but im rather proud of being more open minded about things that non of my friends would even consider)
