Punkernoodle Baby’s 2009/2010 Cloth Diaper Drive has begun!
Officially, things kick off at the Sustainable Ballard Festival, but we are accepting donations anytime.
We will be collecting as many cloth diapers as we can over the next six weeks. At the end of the diaper drive, the community donations will be matched diaper-for-diaper by Punkernoodle Baby with new cloth diapers and then donated through Ballard Food Bank to anyone in need in our community willing to use cloth. If we can collect 500 diapers, we can keep 150,000 disposable diapers out of our local landfill — and double that amount with our match!! Wow – 300,000 fewer diapers in our landfill after just 6 weeks of generosity!
Donations can be brought to the festival, where Punkernoodle Baby will have a booth near the Kids Area, or left on our porch anytime at 7350 Mary Ave. NW, Seattle 98117. Anything is appreciated – new or used diapers, as long as they’re in usable condition. If you want to donate but don’t have cloth diapers, you can leave a monetary donation in an envelope marked “Diaper Drive” in the mailbox or donate online here. Money will be put toward buying new diapers – $5 can buy 5 cloth diapers!!!! Thank in advance to the community and to parents for all their support. Together we can really make a difference — cloth diapering shouldn’t be a class advantage. Those in need can help the planet and give their babies better diapers, too, with all our generosity!
