Play It Forward!
San Francisco is filled with people and organizations doing important work. There are times when those folx could benefit from the pregnancy, birth and parenting items on Natural Resources’ shelves. PLAY IT FORWARD connects organizations who need these items with people who want to donate them, via Natural Resources.
So: pick a cause you want to support, and get them some needed supplies! Thank you!!!
Natural Resources, a nonprofit that supports families through classes, community and safe products, wants to make it easy for all of us to support orgs doing meaningful work in SF. To help, purchase the items which have been requested. We will coordinate delivery to them directly.
DIAPER DRIVE FOR THE HOMELESS PRENATAL PROGRAM IN PARTNERSHIP w/EARTHBABY COMPOSTABLE DIAPER SERVICE
The need for diapers has more than doubled since shelter-in-place. HPP is increasing the amount of diapers that families can receive weekly in order to decrease the necessity of multiple commutes. Since shelter-in-place, HPP has distributed over 250,000 diapers (the amount usually distributed in a year).
Did you know that the average baby will go through 5,500 diapers from age 0-3? Disposable diapers are the 3rd largest contributor to US landfill sites today. Unless compostable diapers and wipes are processed by a licensed commercial compost facility, they will still end up in landfills where even compostable materials cannot break down due to lack of oxygen, heat, and moisture. With your help, EarthBaby diverts more than 9 tons of diaper waste from Bay Area landfills every 3 days and converts it to reusable soil. Our children deserve to inherit a healthy planet!
