The Infant Boutique is proud to be a collection point for The Nappy Collective!
The Nappy Collective collects unused disposable nappies and redistributes them to organisations that support families in crisis or need.
The collections run for two weeks each in May and October.
The Infant Boutique has been a proud supporter of The Nappy Collective since October 2012.
For the May 2016 Collective we are also donating $2 per person that makes a nappy donation at our Norwood boutique. Each $2 donated can provide up to 8 nappies for a family in need.
The Nappy Collective is a collaborative community initiative run by volunteers.
We are a group of mums who found a handful of nappies that our toddlers did not fit into anymore. After considering the options of what to do with only six nappies – pass them onto a friend? Keep them for the next child? Throw them out - what a waste! - we began to wonder if there were other parents out there that also had a handful or even half a box of nappies they were unable to use. What if we were able to collect all these left over nappies and distribute them to families in crisis or in need? Collectively these handfuls of nappies could make a big difference.
In October 2013, we launched our first Nappy Collective via Facebook. With the wonderful support of The Staple Store (our first drop off site), we were overwhelmed with the response. Within two weeks, over 1500 nappies had been collected. The Nappy Collective was born.
Since then, our collectives have expanded around Australia, bringing our total tally of nappies collected to date to over700,000! Stay tuned for the results of our May 2016 Collective, our biggest ever with 400 official drop points in 39 towns and cities across Australia.
