The GLA has not undertaken any research into the environmental benefits of using reusable as opposed to disposable nappies, as this has been done by the Environment Agency and is available on their website. A London-wide scheme for promoting the use of `real' (cloth) nappies is being developed by the Women's Environmental Network, in conjunction with London boroughs and supported by the GLA.
