PLEASE HELP TO COMPILE A REAL LIFE REPORT ON WASHABLE NAPPIES

I need 500 people to complete a survey in the next few weeks,trying to put together an actual picture of washable nappy use in the uk for the minister for the environment to point out how flawed the last one was.

I could also do with some help from you avid googlers- for figures and consumption etc, any offers of help apreciated!

All nappy sellers- could you help by providing these surveys to your customers?

Drag everyone in on it- anyone who uses washables- not nescesarily full time, We need as many facts and figures as we can get.

Could you leave e-mail addy's if you can help, i'm putting together the survey at the moment so i'll email it out when its ready.

And before anyone jumps on me- this is not for marketing or financial gain to anyone- i'm appaled at the downright inaccuracy of the report provided to parliament which lead to the cut of the real nappy campaign- thats all!

I used them for my twins and having read that report I have been geared into using them now for dd4 (if only part-time ).

I'm a member of our local real nappy network & a few of our members also sell nappies. Add me to your list & I'll pass it around the network so they can send them out to customers.

Used them for DD and now for DS, would be VERY happy to help but could you CAT me if possible - email address a bit too obvious (sodding personal domain names )

I use cloth nappies part time and cloth trainers the other half and would love to do a survey, that report made me spit feathers I was so cross.

Depending on the format of the survey, it might be worth putting online for the people to fill in...Email or CAT me if you want a hand to do that.
