Green MP to launch reusable nappy campaign in Hamilton

Green Party Zero Waste campaigner Mike Ward will this weekend join Angela Dixon of Funkybumz and Diane DeEstina from the Home Birth Association in launching a nationwide campaign to get parents back into using reusable nappies.

The aim of the effort is to reduce the use of environmentally damaging and expensive disposables by showing how easy and convenient modern reusable nappies now are and lobbying for measures that make it easier for parents to make the right choice.

A Green Party media release providing background environmental and economic information on the issue will be sent out on Friday.

What: The "Choose to Reuse" cloth nappy campaign launch, Who: Speakers will include Mike Ward MP (Green Party), Angela Dixon (Funkybumz) and Diane DeEstina (Home Birth Association) When: 12 noon, Saturday 15 May. Where: The Parent and Child Show at the Claudelands Showgrounds in Hamilton.
