Earth Day was Sunday. Hopefully with all the hype for the holiday, you've gotten some great ideas about how you can ensure that we are passing along a safe and beautiful world to all the "tiny tushes" among us. (If you don't feel "green" enough yet, check out the Earth Day Fair at the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds this Saturday)
In honor of Earth Day, Piedmont Diaper Bank is proud to launch our new program for cloth diapers! Most of our agencies report that cloth diapers are not a viable option because of limitations from daycare centers and access to laundry facilities. However, these are not obstacles for every family. For families that would like a sustainable, economical and ecological solution to the on-going expense of disposable diapers, we are happy to provide cloth diaper kits that include a full supply of cloth diapers, several diaper covers, a wet bag for storage of soiled diapers, some laundry detergent and instructions for washing and taking care of the diapers.
The cloth diaper program is sponsored by Hip Bottoms Cloth Diapers. We are so grateful for our partnership with Hip Bottoms, providing much needed expertise and follow-up for the families that are learning how to use and wash cloth diapers appropriately.
You can support this program too! Donate at our special fundraising page Green Bums for the Piedmont Diaper Bank and your donation will directly go to our cloth diaper program.
