So why isn’t Real Nappies for London crowing about this? We said it was a bad idea. It’s good news, right?

Actually we just feel sad that it was opened in the first place. We just regret that all the money c £20 million and trust put into this plant wasn’t put into nappy laundering services across the UK. It’s not great news, it’s a missed opportunity and 10 wasted years when we could have been developing the convenient green alternative to disposables; nappy washing services, creating green jobs and local eco-enterprises and reducing the impact of the production, transportation and landfilling of 4,500 single-use nappies per baby.
