Let us know what you think about nappies


How biodegradable is biodegradable?  How sustainable are bamboo nappies really?  What's the latest government fudge on life cycle assessments?


Ethical Consumer is just beginning to put together its next report on Nappies. We have set up a Nappies Research Forum on this website to tap the ideas and opinions of ordinary consumers, and professionals working in the area, before we go to print rather than after.


If there are any burning questions you have about how ethical certain types of nappies are, let us know at


We've also got a draft brand list up there and a couple of ideas that we're looking at.


This consultation period is rather short and unfortunately falling across the Christmas silly season.  The deadline for feedback is January 15th...which doesn't leave a lot of time.  But do pop in and let us know what you think if you feel strongly one way or another...
