Clutha Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

You’ve got to hand it to Kate Meads aka Nappy Lady who has mor­phed from a cloth-nappy pro­moter into awaste-min­imis­ing eco-war­rior.

The self-pro­claimed ad­vo­cate of the earth has a high-volt­age smile and a search-light charm that can find any­one.

She was in Bal­clutha re­cently hold­ing a Love Food Hate Waste mas­ter­class (see photos on the

Out and About page).

I first saw Kate 10 years ago, when she was just start­ing out as a youngish mum. All she wanted was to be­come more re­spon­si­ble about dis­pos­ing her baby’s nap­pies, to re­duce the dis­pos­able nappy moun­tain that mod­ern life has cre­ated.

And with that same in­fec­tious en­ergy, she’s taken it a step fur­ther, with­out shov­ing it down your throat. Her tips are just good old-fash­ioned com­mon sense with a mod­ern twist, such as turn­ing your left­overs into pizza top­pings.

What is great about Kate is that she keeps it fresh, and rel­e­vant in our waste­ful world.
