A Christchurch mother has just opened her second disposable nappy composting factory near Wellington.
Karen Upston set up her first factory in Christchurch three years ago, and now has a new plant in Upper Hutt, with half the cost subsidised by the Government.
Used nappies are mixed with grass clippings and left to compost, with the plastic then separated.
The service costs around $3 a week for a family to use.
Auckland will be next to get a nappy plant.
