Real nappies 'greener', says MSP
A Green MSP is urging Highlands and Islands parents to use non-disposable nappies to help protect the environment.

Dr Eleanor Scott hopes to highlight Real Nappy Week from 24-30 April.

The Highlands and Islands MSP said: "Nappies are one of the biggest sources of landfill waste."

She added events during the week will help parents to gather information on greener alternatives that are beneficial for babies and the planet.
