Now, if that had been 1 nappy on a TV ad I doubt any of us would have batted an eyelid. I mean we’ve seen that most days on our screens for over 30 years now haven’t we? However, when they are asking 100’s of people to pour 200 ml of water on each of them to test which is drier on their cheeks all for a huge Instagram campaign, well that’s a different story… Continue reading “The Cheek Of Pampers: Why I’m Calling Them Out On Their #Cheektest”

How And Why My Passion For Saving The Planet Has Been Reignited
