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.

CURRENT CAMPAIGN

DIAPER DRIVE FOR THE HOMELESS PRENATAL PROGRAM IN PARTNERSHIP w/EARTHBABY COMPOSTABLE DIAPER SERVICE

Natural Resources, in conjunction with EarthBaby Compostable Diaper Service, is hosting a Diaper Drive for the Homeless Prenatal Program.
Our goal is to give out over 200 packs of diapers, briefs (pull-ups) & wipes to be distributed to families in need by HPP.
We are asking you, our community, to purchase these items to be donated.
Homeless Prenatal Program seeks to break the cycle of family homelessness and poverty, and its COVID-19 emergency response fits squarely within that mission. Homeless families, under-housed families and families at risk of homelessness are particularly vulnerable during this crisis for a variety of reasons. HPP is committed to being there for families both now and after the crisis has calmed.

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).
 
**HELP US REACH OUR GOAL BY THE END OF DECEMBER - GIVE TODAY**
 
Thank you to EarthBaby for helping to provide the diapers & get out the word for this drive. EarthBaby is the World’s First Compostable Diaper Service!  Like all diaper services, EarthBaby delivers fresh new compostable diapers and wipes right to your doorstep.  Soiled diapers are collected weekly, professionally composted, and turned into nutrient-rich topsoil in just 14 weeks.  By using EarthBaby you can enjoy the convenience of disposable diapers without the negative environmental impact.  We are committed to reducing the impact our children have on the environment by eliminating diapers and wipes from landfills.

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!
