The Nappy Collective

By · Comments (0)

nappy collective

If you haven’t heard of “the Nappy Collective” the idea is pretty simple – they collect your leftover unused disposable nappies and redistribute them to organisations that support families in crisis or in need.

Collections run for two weeks in MAY & October.

How it works:

Too many nappies?

Do you have leftover unused disposable nappies lying around? Drop them off at your nearest designated collection points whilst the collective is on (the collection point in Coffs Harbour is Baby Bella).

Pass them On

At the end of the two week collective the nappies are sorted, packed and swiftly distributed to organisations that support families in crisis or in need.

Make a difference

Nappies are a basic healthcare need and lack of sufficient nappies can lead to an array of problems for disadvantaged families. So when you donate your spare nappies, you help these families to focus more of their time and energy on getting their lives back on track.

Some facts about the Nappy Collective:

  • 39 cities
  • 400 collection points
  • 734625 nappies collected

Drop your nappies off at Baby Bella Coffs Harbour, now located at Northside Shopping Centre, 81 Park Beach Rd.

You have until this Friday 20th May at 5pm.

The friendly ladies will be able to help and advice you with whatever you need, they offer 9 month layby and can also order in any special products.
